Tenerife vs Espanyol


The newest conferences got here within the 2009-10 Segunda Division with either side successful at dwelling. They’d not met since 2002 previous to that.


Tenerife are unbeaten in 7 dwelling video games, successful 5 of them. Espanyol have managed simply 2 targets in 5 away video games this season.


There may very well be some slight rotation from Tenerife as they're but to essentially choose their strongest line-up. Midfielder Filip Malbašić is one man to look out for with four targets in 9 video games since his summer time transfer from Vojvodina.


Quique Sánchez Flores made wholesale adjustments on this competitors final yr and paid the worth with an exit to second tier Alcorcon on the first hurdle. He'll probably rotate closely once more right here. Diego López could regain his place in purpose whereas Papa Kouly Diop ought to come into the midfield.

This match seems some of the probably to offer an upset within the Copa del Rey this week. Tenerife are a robust Segunda Division aspect who solely narrowly missed out on promotion to La Liga final time period and can actually fancy this in opposition to what's more likely to be a much-changed Espanyol aspect.
The bookies truly make the crew from the Canary Islands favourites and with good purpose. One key issue right here is that Espanyol performed on Monday in San Sebastian in opposition to Actual Sociedad. They’ve since needed to make a significantly lengthy journey by street and air to the Canaries for a match simply three days later so rotation will definitely be foremost within the thoughts of Quique Sánchez Flores.
The issue although is that though Espanyol have a fairly sturdy first eleven lately, there’s not quite a lot of power in depth and so they aren’t churning out the younger expertise like they had been a decade or so in the past when Ernesto Valverde was on the helm. We noticed examples earlier this season once they had been affected by a couple of accidents, that they don’t have a lot in reserve notably on the again and people frailties might properly be uncovered once more right here.
They’ve solely gained twice in 9 matches this time period in any case and are but to file an away win. Tenerife have had a little bit of a combined time of it since shedding to Getafe within the play-off last in June however they're invariably fairly sturdy at dwelling. They’ve performed 28 dwelling video games because the begin of final season in all competitions and have solely suffered two defeats.
There needs to be a great crowd behind them for this one given that is truly their first dwelling Copa del Rey match in eight years and their first sport in opposition to prime flight opponents in the identical interval. They’ve been handed 10 right away ties within the early rounds however have impressed on this competitors this time period with convincing wins away to Rayo Vallecano and Cordoba, netting 7 instances within the course of and conceding simply as soon as.
That factors to them taking this competitors significantly and going for Tenerife Draw No Wager at eight/11 may very well be the good transfer right here.
