Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After failing to win the previous four league matches, Real Oviedo will look to get back on course when they take on Tenerife on Friday evening. Los Azules are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in the danger zone, and, no doubt, they are desperate to get back on course. Rodri Tarin has joined the likes of Carlos Pomares, Javi Mier, Leo Sequeira and Victor Camarasa in the recovery room, while Luismi is back to contention.
Los Insulares, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Sporting Gijon and Eibar in the last two league matches; therefore, we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing more than one point from the Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere showdown. As for the visitors, all Mo Dauda, Kike Salas, Riza Durmisi, and Sam Shashoua are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Sergi Enrich):
Sergi Enrich is a product of Mallorca’s youth academy. The 181-cm-tall striker was born in Ciutadella, Spain on 26 February, 1990 and he began his senior career at Mallorca. Enrich played 83 league games for Mallorca B, while making 6 appearances for the first team between 2010 and 2013.
During his spell at Mallorca he played for the likes of Recreativo and Alcorcon on loan and in 2013 he signed a two-year deal with Numancia. Sergi Enrich scored 26 goals in 76 league appearances for Numancia, but on 12 July, 2015 he joined Eibar to play in the Spanish top flight.
The Spanish attacker made 35 appearances for los Ameros in the 2015/2016 season, scoring seven goals in the process. Sergi Enrich’s market value was €4 million in July, 2016 and it has to be noted that his contract with Eibar expires on 30 June, 2018. His maternal family name is Ametller.
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.
