Tenerife vs Mallorca
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Friday, 22nd February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Heliodoro Rodríguez López (Santa Cruz de Tenerife).
Quite a peculiar match we have got in our hands owing to the circumstances involved. Tenerife is battling to stay alive in the competition, and avoid the relegation zone, while Mallorca is just two points away from securing a spot in the playoff list. As such, the latter should hold the upper hand. But the venue of the upcoming tie brings a world of difference to the teams’ prospects.
Tenerife has been lighting it up at their home ground, pulling in great performances one after the other, and for the moment, has overshadowed their limitations on the road. Mallorca, on the other hand, cannot deliver a decent away tie for the life of them. They really can’t seem to do justice to their top-tier status, in their games away from home.
Tenerife vs Mallorca Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the last eleven wins belong to the home teams.

Tenerife vs Mallorca Prediction
Mallorca was winless in 14 of their last 16 fixtures on the road. Plus, they have not won at this venue since 2013. Meanwhile, Tenerife was unbeaten in 20 of their last 24 home ties.
H2h stats also tips the scale towards the home teams. 9 of the last 11 wins were recorded by the hosts, and the visitors failed to score a single goal in 9 of their last 14 attempts.
The home team has all settings in place to take the three points. But the win will not come for a huge margin, considering the low scores that have always been a peculiar trait of meetings between these teams. 12 of the last 17 encounters had fewer than three goals. At this stadium, the rate for such games is even higher, with just a single tie crossing the 2.5 goals limit.
Taking into account the above observations, backing a 1-0 win for the hosts returns the most value.
