Almeria continue their charge for the La Liga 2 title as they visit the Reale Arena to face Real Sociedad B on Friday.
The game has all the makings of a thrilling contest as both sides head into the game on a three-match winning streak.
Real Sociedad B picked up a third win on the trot last Saturday as they saw off CF Fuenlabrada 2-1 away from home.
Prior to that, they ended their six-game winless run with a 2-1 victory over SD Amorebieta on April 23 before edging out Real Valladolid 2-1 nine days later.
With 40 points from 39 games, Real Sociedad B are currently 19th in the La Liga 2 table, two points off 18th-placed Malaga just outside the relegation zone.
Similarly, Almeria made it three straight wins last time out as they edged out Amorebieta 3-0 on home turf.
They are now unbeaten in each of their last six outings, claiming four wins and two draws in that time.
With three games to go, Almeria are currently top of the league standings with a two-point cushion over second-placed Eibar.
