Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sporting Gijon and Tenerife go head to head at Estadio El Molinon in the closing match of Sunday’s program. Los Rojiblancos are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground, but they face a difficult task against los Insulares. Serbia-born Montenegro international Uros Djurdjevic is back from international duty, while both Giovanni Zarfino and Axel Bamba continue to miss out with injuries.
Tenerife, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing more than one point from the match. Both Javi Alonso and Aitor Sanz are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Asturias. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Tenerife’s five league games this season. In their last meeting at “El Molinon” Gijon defeated Tenerife 1-0 thanks to Dani Queipo’s goal.
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.
