Competition: Spanish Segunda
Market: Tenerife win
Odds: 2/1 @ Bet 365
Simply hoping to carry on from where they left off in March on Friday evening, a resurging Tenerife will make the trip to a Fuenlabrada side who previously found themselves in freefall.
Starting with the hosts, entering the enforced break with another sluggish display in their 2-0 defeat away at Huesca, Fuenlabrada are desperate to draw a line under what was a horror few months. Suddenly looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, the Blues have remarkably failed to win any of their last 13 Segunda outings, a run that stems all the way back to December 1st. Collecting just a single point out of their four previous appearances prior to the enforced break, José Ramón Sandoval’s side also hold a dier reputation for their toothless displays in the final third. Drawing another blank last time out, Fuenlabrada have stunningly failed to find the net in seven of their last eight second-tier outings. In fact, with just a pair of goals from open play to their name in over 800 minutes of action, Friday’s hosts could be in for a tricky return this week.
As for the visitors, while Fuenlabrada still find themselves looking over their shoulder, the mood in Tenerife’s camp should be at a high after a stunning run of form prior to the break. Last seen back in March when picking up a deserved win over play-off outsiders Ponferradina, Rubén Baraja’s men have remarkably lost just one of their last nine Segunda appearances, a run that stems back to the middle of January. Suddenly looking to mount a top-half charge at the back end of the season, Baraja would have been most impressed by his side’s continued displays at the back. The Whites shipped just a single Segunda strike in their previous four outings prior to entering the break. With a real opportunity to cause an upset on their return to action this week, we’re backing a drastically improved Tenerife to extend on their previous purple patch on Friday evening.
Bet: Tenerife 2/1 to beat Fuenlabrada in Friday’s Spanish Segunda return @ Bet 365
