Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Tenerife will be aiming to build on Copa del Rey win over Las Palmas when they take on Elche in the opening match of 2024. Los Insulares are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but Saturday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. All Waldo Rubio, Jose Leon, and Javi Alonso are out of contention with injuries, while both Jeremy Mellot and Enric Gallego are major doubts.
Los Franjiverdes, on the other hand, do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team failing to win the previous three league matches. Given their poor displays in back-to-back defeats to Cartagena and Real Oviedo, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home side. As for the away side, Osca Plano misses out with injury, while all Alex Martin, Josan, and Nicolas Castro will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Team (Elche):
Established in 1923, Elche is a Spanish club that competes in La Liga. Los Franjiverdes welcome their rivals at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero, the stadium which can hold up to 33,732 spectators. The venue was opened on September 8, 1976.
Elche wear white shirts with green stripe and white shorts when playing at home, while black is the dominant colour of their away jersey. The club’s biggest success came in 1969 as Elche made it to the Copa del rey final. Los Franjiverdes faced Club Atletico de Bilbao in the Spanish Cup final, with the Basques winning the match by one goal to nil.
The likes of Mario Pasalic, Ivan Bolado, Garry Rodrigues, Goran Djorovic, Albert Nadj, Wakaso, Moha, Carlos Sanchez, Ioan Andone, Enzo Roco, Dominique Malonga, Richmond Boakye, and Sory Kaba are some of the notable players who were part of the team in the past. Elche have never represented Spain in European competitions.
