Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Tenerife and Girona square off against each other at Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez in what is expected to be a close encounter. Tenerife did well to eliminate Sestao in their Copa del Rey opener, but the team’s main goal is to secure automatic promotion to La Liga. Defender Carlos Pomares is banned for the match as he was sent off in a 4-2 loss to Oviedo.
The Catalans, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team recording three wins in the previous four league fixtures. Girona are eyeing their sixth consecutive clean sheet in all competitions, and seeing that Tenerife are tough to beat at home, a low-scoring affair is on the cards. Under 2.5 goals have been netted in nine of the previous ten meetings between the two sides in all competitions.
