Their latest results shine a light on the fact that there has been much resilience in the UD Almería backline. Almería have given the opposition little, with the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their past six outings standing at 4. We will see if that trend will be sustained here.
Going into this one, UD Almería are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches at home.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Logroñés in La Liga 2 action, Tenerife and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

A sequence of outstanding showings by the Tenerife defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their previous 6 fixtures overall. Over that same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 3.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Tenerife:
- have not been beaten by UD Almería when having played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
- are without a win away from home in their last 8 matches in the league. Very poor, indeed.
