On Friday, May 18, the Heliodoro Rodríguez López stadium will be the scenario of the matchday 40 of LaLiga 1|2|3. In this match, CD Tenerife, 11th of the table with 54 points, will receive Sporting Guijón, 3rd of the table with 68 points.
Tenerife have already five games without winning and they are crying out for the season to end. In their last game away, they played against ten men for more than an hour, but ended up adding only one point that does not get them out of the negative outcome. The “blanquiazules” have yet to play three games and they are seven points away from the desired sixth position but the figures does not match. With nine points in play, the Etxeberría squad can only add 63 points, at most. Last campaign they reached 66.
The team is not having great games, they do not know how to take advantage of the opportunities, they have problems to handle the ball and their physical condition is not the best. However, they will look for a win at home and see how far they can go, knowing that the goal was to be higher in the standings and they have not achieved it.
If there are no changes with respect to those who played against Reus, the team would be made up of: Dani Hernández, Luis Pérez, Jorge Sáenz, Carlos Ruiz, Samuel Camille, Juan Carlos Real, Alberto Jiménez, Luis Milla, Juan Villar, Víctor Casadesús and Filip Malbasic.
CD Tenerife last games: Cultural Leonesa – CD Tenerife (3 – 2); CD Tenerife – S.D. Huesca (2 – 4); Rayo Vallecano – CD Tenerife (3 – 1); CD Tenerife – Almería (0 – 0); Reus Deportiu – CD Tenerife (1 – 1)
For Sporting Gijón all the remaining matches are difficult and with only four points of difference compared to the second place, this is definitely a key moment. In his last game against FC Barcelona B, Sporting lost the streak of ten consecutive games won at El Molinón and did so against one of the weakest defenses in the championship.
Although the men of Rubén Baraja have the advantage that Tenerife is an unmotivated team, the Asturians will be dismissed almost definitely from the direct promotion if they lose.
Rubén Baraja’s titular team could include Diego Mariño, Jordi Calavera, Federico Barba, Roberto Canella, Álex Bergantiños, Sergio Álvarez, Carlos Carmona, Rubén García, Jony Rodríguez, Michael Santos and Álex Pérez instead of Alberto Guitián, who despite the four yellow cards is important for the team.
Sporting Gijón last games: Valladolid – Sporting Gijón (0 – 1); Cádiz – Sporting Gijón (0 – 0); Sporting Gijón – Albacete (2 – 1); Zaragoza – Sporting Gijón (2 – 1); Sporting Gijón – Barça B (2 – 3)
