Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Monday’s football game at Estadio El Molinon pits together Sporting Gijon and Tenerife. Los Rojiblancos were eager to keep their 100% record intact at Oviedo at the weekend, but the Blues proved to be a big catch for David Gallego’s troops. Gijon aim to start a new winning run in Segunda Division, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Tenerife.
As before, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be former Partizan Belgrade attacker Uros Djurdjevic, who has been in a fine form at the start of the season. Tenerife, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travellers, and even though they defeated Rayo Vallecano during the international break, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Gijon’s party at Estadio El Molinon. Bermejo Escribano, who scored the winner at the weekend, is pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (Carlos Carmona):
Carlos Carmona is a professional footballer who plays for Atalanta as a midfielder. Carmona played for Coquimbo Unido from 2004 to 2007 and then he moved to O’Higgins. However, it has to be noted that he made no more than 17 appearances for the club during his one-season spell.
In the summer of 2008 the Chilean footballer moved to Reggina and he made his Serie A debut on 14 September against Torino. Carmona made 32 league appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 Serie A campaign and he remained at Stadio Oreste Granillo for one more season. In 2010 Carlos Carmona signed a deal with Atalanta and he has been playing for Orobici ever since.
The Atalanta midfielder has 20 caps for Chile U20 and he made his debut for the senior team against Spain on 19 November, 2008. Carlos Carmona was named in Chile 2015 Copa America squad, but he was eventually forced to withdraw with injury.
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.
