Las Palmas host Almeria at the Estadio de Gran Canaria in the Spanish Segunda Division on Sunday, with both sides having strong seasons so far.

Las Palmas are currently seventh in the league, three points off fifth place. Pepe Mel's side have been in inconsistent form, having lost two of their last five games across all competitions. They will look to turn things around with a win against Almeria.

After an incredible start to the season, league leaders Almeria have faltered of late. Rubi's side will be heading into the game having lost their last two fixtures on the trot. They hope to bounce back with a win against Las Palmas on Sunday.

Both sides will be looking to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an exciting contest.
