Almeria host Alcorcon at the Estadio Mediterraneo in the Spanish Segunda Division on Saturday, with both sides having had contrasting seasons.
Almeria is currently at the top of the table, two points ahead of Eibar in second. Rubi's side will know that a win will guarantee their promotion back to the La Liga. They will look to secure their promotion with a win against a poor Alcorcon side.
Alcorcon, on the other hand, are currently at the bottom of the league, having already been relegated from the division. Fran Fernandez's side have been in terrible form of late, having lost four of their last five games. It's hard to see them taking anything away from the game on Saturday.
Almeria will know that this is a golden opportunity to secure promotion against a poor Alcorcon side.
