Tenerife vs Real Zaragoza
Spain – LaLiga2
Date: Sunday, 9th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Heliodoro Rodríguez López (Santa Cruz de Tenerife).
Both teams managed to avoid the relegation demon which looked threatening in the final stages of the season. But now, the safety that the teams have ensured might take some heat out of this impending tie.
Zaragoza and Tenerife as well showed a drop in intensity once they mathematically booked their ticket for one more year of stay in the Segunda. The last games of either were goalless draws. Tenerife had taken on Lugo, on the road, to split the points evenly, while Zaragoza was pitted against Numancia.
Home advantage might play a factor in determining the outcome of the game, as Tenerife seems to have had the upper hand in such matches in the last few years. But Real will not roll over though, as their away from in the concluding stages of the season were impressive.
Tenerife vs Real Zaragoza Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the last four wins went to Tenerife.

- The last Tenerife lost at this venue was back in 2010.
- Zaragoza failed to find the back of the net in their last three visits to the stadium.
Tenerife vs Real Zaragoza Prediction
The home advantage will play a great role in supporting Tenerife this Sunday. They have been holding their end at this venue for the last ten years or so. The last Zaragoza recorded a win at this stadium was in 2010.
It’s true that Zaragoza registered back-to-back 0-3 wins on the road in the games just before the last one, away from home. But then their safety was not secured yet. Moreover, Tenerife has suffered just three losses from their last 17 attempts at home.
Also, take note that three of the last four h2h wins went to Tenerife, and Zaragoza failed to even record a goal in their last three encounters here. The top pick is for the hosts to avoid a loss in their season-ender.
Regarding goals, as said earlier, both squads are here after taking part in goalless draws, and historically Zaragoza has struggled at this venue. In addition, seven of the last eight h2h clashes had two or fewer goals.
Finally, players might not go out of their way to record a victory considering their objective is already secured. Expect a low-scoring affair this Sunday in the Segunda.
