Eimer knows Real Madrid is one of the world's best teams, with one of its best strikers. Karim Benzema scored a league-high 27 goals in 2021-22, and Los Blancos had 80 in their 38 games. They conceded just 31, second-fewest in the league. The team hasn't changed much, with Benzema up top, an elite midfield featuring Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric and Spain's best goalkeeper in Thibaut Courtois, Vinicius Junior (17 goals, 10 assists) also is developing into one of the league's most exciting players.
The expert also has considered that Almeria will be on a massive high in front of its home fans in its return to La Liga. Nigerian striker Umar Sadiq has had a major impact on the team in his two years there. The 24-year-old has scored 38 goals while setting up 13 more in 74 games and is likely auditioning for a major payday down the line. Goalkeeper Fernando shared the league lead with 16 clean sheets last season and had a save percentage of 75.4. Almeria allowed 35 goals last season, fewest in the division.
