Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Fuenlabrada and Tenerife square off against each other at Estadio Fernando Torres in what is expected to be a very exciting game. Fuenla obviously suffered a dip in form, and it has to be noted that they failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures. Despite failing to convert a penalty kick in a 2-0 midweek loss at Rayo, Salvador is likely to keep his place in the starting XI.
Tenerife, on the other hand, have been playing some low-scoring games of late. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of their last six league matches, and seeing that Fuenlabrada have been struggling in front of goal in recent weeks, we are unlikely to see goals galore at Estadio Fernando Torres. Georgia international Otar Kakabadze is likely to miss Sunday’s clash as he picked up a knock in the 1-1 draw with Lugo.
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.
