Facts and other important things to know about the match
Barcelona, after playing the last game of the 2022–23 UEFA Champions League tournament against Viktoria Plzen, will be hosting UD Almeria for the thirteenth round of the 2022–23 La Liga Santander competition at the Spotify Camp Nou stadium on Saturday evening.
Barcelona are currently sitting in second place on the La Liga league table with 31 points after twelve games played so far this season.
The Catalan club has the best defense and a joint best attack with Real Madrid. They have conceded four goals and scored twenty-nine.
Almeria, on the other hand, are currently sitting in the fourteenth position with thirteen points after twelve games played so far this season on the La Liga table. They have lost twice and won three times in their last five games in the competition.
Barcelona can be considered the favorites heading into this encounter, as they are obviously the better team. They have never lost a game to Almeria in the history of Spanish football and will look to keep it that way as they meet at the Camp Nou stadium.
Gerard Pique will be playing his last game in a Barcelona shirt, as he announced earlier this week.
