Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Tenerife will be looking to put an end to their three-match winless run when they take on Ibiza in the La Liga 2 round 36. Los Insulares are eight points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they are safe for now. Tenerife, on the other hand, have a chance to climb to top ten in the standings, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Ibiza. Carlos Ruiz has yet to serve his ban, while both Zorrilla Jimenez and Mohammed Dauda are major doubts.
Meanwhile, the visitors are 12 points behind the safe zone, meaning that the lack of confidence could prove to be a big problem for Lucas Alcaraz’s troops. In their last meeting at the venue Tenerife defeated Ibiza 2-0, and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. Fausto Grillo is banned for the match, while fellow defender Joseda Menargues misses out with an ACL injury.
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.
