Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Oviedo and Tenerife square off against each other at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere on day 3 of the new La Liga 2 campaign. After sharing the spoils with Lugo in their opener, los Azules suffered a 2-1 loss at Almeria in their second game of the season. Oviedo are desperate to give fans something to cheer about, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at los Insulares.
Summer signing Borja Baston is likely to make his full debut against Tenerife. The visitors, on the other hand, kicked off the new Segunda Division campaign with a 2-1 win at Fuenlabrada, with the team sharing the spoils with Sporting Gijon at the weekend. Considering that Tenerife have been in a fine form at the start of the season, a close encounter is on the cards at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere.
Highlighted Player (Alejandro Arribas ):
Born in Madrid, Spain on May 1, 1989, Alejandro Arribas is a Spanish footballer who plays for Real Oviedo in La Liga 2. Arribas is a very experienced defender as he played for Primera Division sides Rayo Vallecano, Osasuna, Deportivo La Coruna and Sevilla in the past.
He is a product of Rayo Majadahonda football school, but he did not see any game action with the club at senior level. Alejandro Arribas played for Mexican club UNAM before signing a three-year deal with Real Oviedo in the summer of 2019.
He made his debut with los Azules in a 2-1 loss to Fuenlabrada on August 31, 2019. The towering defender has never received a call-up for the Spain national football team. His main position is centre-back, but he can be used as a right-back as well if needed. The right-footed footballer has a contract with Real Oviedo until June 30, 2021.
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.
