Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After sharing the spoils with Sabadell in their last game of 2020, Castellon will be looking to extend their winning run at home ground to three games when they host Tenerife at their Estadio Municipal de Castalia. Los Albinegros have been impressive on home soil of late, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Tenerife as well. Los Insulares, on the other hand, did well to beat Girona at home in their last league match, with the team climbing to 16th position in the standings.
Tenerife, though, have been struggling on the travels this season, which is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Castellon this time out. In their last away game in the Segunda Division Tenerife suffered a heavy 4-2 loss to Real Oviedo. The good news for the visitors is that Pomares returns from suspension.
