Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Tenerife and Mirandes face each other in a highly-anticipated La Liga 2 game at Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez. Los Insulares aim to build on back-to-back wins over Ponferradina and Real Valladolid, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive clean sheet. Luis Miguel Ramis is doing a great job with Tenerife, and we are positive that he will adopt yet another defence-minded approach against Mirandes.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Alcorcon. Considering that los Insulares have turned their Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez into a real fortress, the visitors are unlikely to grab something from Sunday’s encounter. To make things even worse for Mirandes, midfielder Victor Meseguer is out of contention through suspension as he was sent off in the defeat to los Alfareros.
Highlighted Player (Adrian Ortola):
Adrian Ortola is a Spanish goalkeeper who plays for Segunda Division side Tenerife. Born in Xabia, Spain on August 20, 1993, Ortola spent his youth career at the likes of Javea and Alicante before moving to Villarreal in 2008.
The 185-cm tall shot-stopper did not see any game action with the senior team, but he has 43 appearances in total for Villarreal B and Villarreal C. In 2013 he moved to Barcelona, being assigned to the reserve team. He played for Alaves and Deportivo La Coruna on loan as well before signing a two-year deal with Tenerife in the summer of 2019.
Adrian Ortola made his Tenerife debut in a 2-0 loss to Zaragoza on August 17, 2019, and he kept his first clean sheet with los Insulares in a goalless draw with Las Palmas the following month. Speaking of his international career, the goalkeeper has four caps with Spain U20 team.
Highlighted Team (Mirandes):
Mirandes is a Spanish club founded on May 3, 1927. Los Rojillos compete in Segunda division, with the team still eyeing their first ever promotion to La Liga. Mirandes’ home colours are red and black, while their away kit is mainly light blue.
Mirandes did remarkably well to make it to the Copa del Rey semis in the 2019/20 season, with the team outplaying the likes of Celta, Villarreal, and Sevilla in the process. Real Sociedad, though, proved to be a big catch for Mirandes in the Spanish Cup semis. Los Rojillos welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The stadium was opened back in 1950, with the venue being able to host 5,759 spectators.
Mirandes played their first game on June 4, 1927, with the team defeating Arabarra thanks to Fidel Angulo’s goal. Zaragoza and Alaves are considered one of the club’s main rivals. Los Rojillos have won Castilla and Leon Cup on two occasions (2011, 2012).
