Tenerife vs Sporting Gijon: Preview and Predictions

Tenerife vs Sporting Gijon
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Friday, 18 May 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez.

The 40th round of Spanish Segunda Division is going to be opened with a clash between Tenerife and Sporting Gijon.

After having a very good winning streak, home side’s from dropped in the last five rounds. They didn’t manage to book a win in that period and only 2 points won kicked them out of the race for the promotion playoffs spot.

Samuele Longo and the lads have been pretty efficient so far, however their defending should have been better. Tenerife are playing very well at home, but in the last two games in front of their fans they picked up just a point.

The visitors are far from good form as well as they have tied two defeats and now they are four points away from the direct promotion spot. Ruben Baraja’s side has been doing well in the front, while their defending is fairly decent. They’ve been putting solid performances when playing away from home, but also failed to win in the last two outings.

Tenerife vs Sporting Gijon: Head-to-head

Sporting Gijon have been more successful in their recent head to head clashes and they booked three wins from the last five matches, without failing to a defeat. When these two sides meet each other, the crowd can expect moderate number of goals.

Tenerife vs Sporting Gijon: Prediction

Since the hosts have lost all the chances to fight for the promotion playoffs spot and this game is much more important for the visitors, we could see Sporting Gijon bagging a win which can keep them in the direct promotion race.

Both teams are very efficient this season and it won’t be surprising if we see goals in both nets. Tenerife are scoring many goals at home, while Sporting Gijon also know how to find the back of the net.
