It’s not been often in recent times that UD Las Palmas have shown defensive steel. The facts show that UD Las Palmas have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 8 goals in the process. That being said, it remains to be seen whether that pattern might persist in this upcoming match.
Their prior results show that UD Las Palmas:
- haven't lost in the league to Tenerife in their previous 4 matches.
- have not been beaten in their last 6 home league matches.
Tenerife head into the game following on from a 2-1 La Liga 2 win with the eclipse of Amorebieta in their last outing.
In that game, Tenerife managed 41% possession and 8 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. For Tenerife, the goals were scored by Elady Zorrilla (29') and Samuel Shashoua (64'). Amorebieta had 12 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Asier Etxaburu (70') was the scorer for Amorebieta.

Going into this encounter, Tenerife have left without a victory over UD Las Palmas in away games against them for the last 6 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
