Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Leganes welcome Tenerife to their Estadio Municipal de Butarque on day 12 of the new Segunda Division campaign. Following back-to-back wins over Cartagena and Malaga, the capital club suffered a 2-1 loss to Levante in their last league match to stay in the danger zone. Leganes are eyeing their third home win of the process, and the fact that they defeated Malaga in their last home game is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Tenerife.
Both Manuel Garrido and Daniel Jimenez are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team. Los Insulares, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Granada, but given their poor away record (0-2-3) in the 2022/2023 season, the share of spoils is on the cards. All Waldo Rubio, Samuel Shashoua, and Alex Corredera are out of contention with injuries for the away side.
Highlighted Player (Allan Nyom):
After playing amateur football in his homeland France, Allan Nyom began his professional career at Arles-Avignon. The pacey full back made 37 appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 season and at the end of the campaign he signed a deal with Serie A side Udinese. However, given the great collaboration between Udinese and Granada, he was immediately sent on loan to the Estadio Nuevo los Carmenes outfit.
Granada finished the 2009/2010 season in top position in the Segunda Division and, as a result, they secured automatic promotion to the Spanish top flight. Allan Nyom established himself as a first-team regular and it has to be noted that he made 32 appearances for los Granadinos in the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign. After spending five seasons at Granada, Nyom joined Watford in 2015 and he moved to fellow Premier League side WBA at the end of the season.
The WBA defender represents Cameroon on the international stage and he made his debut for Les Lions Indomptables on November 11, 2011.
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.
