Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Wednesday’s football game at Estadio Municipal de Anduva pits together Mirandes and Tenerife, the two teams who are level on points ahead of Matchday 32. Mirandes aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but the game against Tenerife will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. Cristo is widely expected to lead the line for los Rojillos.
Los Insulares, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back draws with Malaga and Las Palmas. Tenerife are not regarded as good travellers, but seeing that they have been producing fine displays in La Liga 2 of late, we are tempted to put our money on draw. In the first half of the season Mirandes defeated Tenerife 2-1, but share of spoils is on the cards this time out at Estadio Municipal de Anduva.

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.
