Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Alaves and Tenerife face each other at Estadio Mendizorrotza in what is expected to be an entertaining Segunda Division game. The Basques aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, but Saturday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Nikola Maras is out for the rest of the season, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Los Insulares, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 4-1 win over Las Palmas, but given their poor away record, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing more than one point from the match. Elady limped off with injury at the weekend, with Borja Garces likely to step. There are no other selection worries in the away team ahead of the trip to the Basque Country.
Highlighted Team (Tenerife):
Tenerife is a Spanish club based in the Canary Islands. Tenerife were founded on November 21, 1912, with the team playing home games at Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez. The stadium was opened on July 25, 1925 and it can hold up to 22,824 spectators.
Los Insulares established them as the elite division club in the 1990s, but in 1999 the team suffer relegation to La Liga 2. Tenerife played in la liga two seasons more (2001/02, 2009/10), but they have been competing in lower leagues ever since. Los Insulares wear white and blue shirts when playing at home, whereas light green is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Tenerife participated in the UEFA Cup in the 1993/94 season, with the team eliminating the likes of Auxerre and Olympiakos before losing to Juventus in the last 16. Three years later the Spanish club did remarkably well to make it to the UEFA Cup semis. Las Palmas are considered Tenerife’s main rivals.
