Our tips, poll and stats for Tenerife v Málaga can all be found here - plus the latest betting odds.
Tenerife will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 La Liga 2 loss in their previous game against Ibiza.
In that game, Tenerife had 51% possession and 8 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Tenerife was Jérémy Mellot (63' Own goal). For their opponents, Ibiza had 8 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.
It’s not been often in recent times that Tenerife have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Tenerife have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 9 goals in the process. We will see if that trend will end up being continued on here.
Taking a look at their past results, Tenerife:
- haven't beaten Málaga in their last 3 league games.
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 home league matches.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against SD Huesca in La Liga 2 action, Málaga and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Málaga had 62% possession and 11 shots at goal with 1 on target. At the other end, SD Huesca had 8 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Juan Carlos (67') scored for SD Huesca.
The stats don’t lie, and Málaga have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 10 goals overall. At the back, Málaga have clearly had some problems.

Team News: Tenerife
Sergio González (Muscle Injury), Javi Alonso (Meniscus irritation), Samuel Shashoua (Pubalgia), Pablo Larrea (Sideband tear in the knee) and Mo Dauda (Hailrine crack in lumbar vertebra) will not be taking part for Tenerife manager Luis Ramis.
Team News: Málaga
Owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go, the Málaga manager Pablo Guede has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this match.
We believe that Málaga should get enough chances to score a goal against this Tenerife lineup, but it possibly won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Tenerife after the 90. Should be a good one.
