Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following back-to-back defeats to Elche and Real Valladolid, Tenerife will look to return to winning ways in Segunda Division when they take on Villarreal B on Sunday afternoon. Los Insulares are a team with two faces, with the team producing excellent performances at home ground, while struggling on the travels and you should know that they have already registered five wins at their Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez. All Waldo Rubio, Fernando Medrano, Jose Leon, and Javi Alonso are out of contention with injuries.
The Yellow Submarine B, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the Spanish second tier and given their difficulties in front of goal, we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing hosts. Villarreal B midfield duo Alberto del Moral – Hugo Perez remains in the recovery room, while Pablo Iniguez is a major doubt.
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.
