Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio el Toralin will host Wednesday’s football game between Ponferradina and Tenerife. Even though many people expected that La Ponfe would extend their winning run to four games at the weekend, the team suffered a 2-0 loss to Cartagena on home soil. Ponferradina aim to climb to the playoffs berth, but the game against Tenerife will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Los Insulares share the spoils with Sporting de Gijon on Matchday 6, with Zarfino scoring the equalizer in the dying minutes of the game. Tenerife are not regarded as good travellers, but given Ponferradina’s display in the defeat to Cartagena, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in five of their last six meetings in the Spanish second tier.
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.
