Tenerife vs Espanyol
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Thursday, 26th October 2017
Kick off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez (Tenerife).
Tenerife have been pretty impressive so far in Copa del Rey netting the total of seven goals past the likes of Rayo Vallecano and Cordoba to earn the last 32 round clash with the Primera Division outfit Espanyol.
There are no doubts the local fans are going to make a real buzz on Thursday evening at Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez where Tenerife have been a tough nut to crack so far in the Segunda Division campaign.
Chicharreros have won three and drawn two of their five home outings so far in the season and they are generally undefeated in last four fixtures.
The good form sees Jose Marti’s side close to the promotional battle and we’re quite confident they’ll have something to say against Espanyol over two legs.
The visitors have ambitions of potentially getting involved in the contest for European spots this year, but their main issue at the start of the season is delivering away from RCDE Stadium.
Budgerigars are winless in each of their five games on the road so far in the season, though we have to be fair and say they did play the likes of Sevilla, Barcelona, Villarreal, Real Madrid and Real Sociedad away from home so far.
Tenerife vs Espanyol: Head to head
This will be the first official head to head encounter between the two teams since the 2009/10 La Liga campaign.
Espanyol have been much better over the course of the history winning eight and losing no more than two of 15 meetings with Chicharreros.
Tenerife vs Espanyol: Prediction
We see this as a very close tie where Tenerife’s huge opportunity will be to gain advantage in front of their fans.
The hosts will be super motivated to grab the victory here in the first leg and we’ll back them at the 2.40 as a sort of a longshot.
