Heading into this fixture, Leganés have not beaten Tenerife in their previous 4 matches in the league.

A tendency of at least one team not managing to score in games involving Tenerife has become apparent in recent matches. A glance at their last 6 meetings reveals that it has occurred 5 times. In those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal total of 4 and Tenerife have scored 6. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.

Team News: Leganés
Leganés manager Asier Garitano has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all before this game thanks to a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Tenerife
Tenerife boss Luis Ramis has to currently contend with reduced team options. Giovanni Zarfino (Muscle Injury), Borja Lasso (Fibula Fracture), Bruno Wilson (Muscle Injury) and Jacobo González (Metatarsal Fracture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We envisage that Tenerife have the firepower to find the back of the net against this Leganés team, although that might not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re going for a 2-1 winning margin for Leganés when all is said and done. Expecting it to be very competitive.
