Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Tenerife will be aiming to record their third consecutive win over Castellon in all competitions when the two teams face each other at Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez. Los Insulares are eager to revive their playoffs hopes, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Castellon. Keep in mind, though, that Tenerife boss Luis Miguel Ramis has a number of selection worries ahead of Sunday’s clash.
Los Albinegros, on the other hand, are three points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the trip to the Canary Islands. Castellon have been in a fine form of late, and seeing that they are desperate to escape the danger zone, away win should be considered. Taking everything into account, the visitors should take advantage of the number of absentees in the home team. In their last league game Castellon defeated promotion-chasing Mallorca thanks to Juanto Ortuno’s goal.

Highlighted Team (Castellon):
CD Castellon is a Spanish club based in the Valencian Community. Valencia flag dominates the club’s crest, but their home colours are white with black stripes. Castellon footballers wear green jerseys and green shorts when playing on the travels.
The club have been having their ups and downs ever since it was founded on July 20, 1922, with the team finishing fifth in the Spanish elite division in the 1972/73 season. It has to be noted that Castellon have not played in La Liga since the 1990/91 campaign when they suffered relegation to Segunda Division. Nowadays, Castellon compete in the Spanish second tier, with the team welcoming their rivals at Nou Castalia stadium.
Legendary Spanish coach Vicente Del Bosque played for the club in the 1970s. Castellon’s biggest success came in the 1972/73 season as they participated in the Copa del rey final. However, Athletic Bilbao proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
