Preview: A deflected strike from a defender is all that separates the sides at half-time in this Spanish La Liga 2 semi-final play-off between Las Palmas and Tenerife.

Las Palmas – Fine recent home form must be extended? 

Defeat in Santa Cruz de Tenerife on Wednesday means the home side this Saturday are the ones having to chase a goal in this return leg. Las Palmas tend to dictate the play in most matches. However they took their possession-based approach to another level four three days ago, seeing more than 70% of the ball and using it to manufacture more attempts on goal (6 on target to 4) and more corners (9 to 4).

Said dominance didn’t yield a positive outcome though, nor a goal, but that can be rectified back amidst favourable surroundings. ‘Pio Pio’ finished the regular season imperiously, winning five league games on the bounce and losing none of 11 (W9 D2) prior to that slender reverse in Tenerife. Most impressive of all, though, was their run of five successive home victories to see out the 2021-22 league campaign.

Key Stat: Nine of the 12 home La Liga 2 victories earned by Las Palmas in 2021-22 were by a single goal margin, including four of their current five-game winning run inside Estadio Gran Canaria.

Tenerife – Strongest away side in La Liga 2 can bide their time?

Wednesday’s winning goal probably best signified how inseparable these two teams are. After amassing one point fewer across 42 regular season matches, it took a scruffy finish via a massive deflection from a rare source to split them first time around and hand Tenerife the initiative. Defender Jose Leon opting for the play-offs to pop up with his first goal of the campaign, and what a crucial goal it could pan out to be.

Defending said lead won’t be easy. Unlike their opponents, Tenerife didn’t end the regular season well. The opposite, in fact. Los Chicharreros wrapped up their play-off berth nice and early with a six-game unbeaten spell (W4 D2) from April to early May. Complacency had crept in by this stage then, scoring once as they lost their last three assignments – including a 2-0 scoreline at Eibar, who they could yet meet in the final.

Key Stat: On only one occasion this season, across 21 matches (W11 D4 L6), did Tenerife sustain an away defeat in La Liga 2 by a margin greater than a solitary goal.

Las Palmas Vs Tenerife Betting Advice

The onus will be on the home side after losing the first-leg 1-0. Regardless of what occurred in that opening contest, Las Palmas would have been the team seeking to control possession. The problem now, of course, is that their opponents have even greater incentive to dig in and take fewer risks. Tenerife boasted the second strongest defence in Spain’s second tier this term, but the best away from home.


Las Palmas Vs Tenerife – Key Facts:

  • Victory for Tenerife in the first leg went some way to atoning for home and away losses against Las Palmas during the 2021-22 regular season. Both losses were by single-goal margins, succumbing 2-1 at this venue in October.
  • In La Liga 2 this season, no team accrued more away points (37 – W11 D4 L6) or boasted a better defensive record (19 conceded in 21 games) than Tenerife.
  • However, Las Palmas ended the regular season unbeaten in 11 (W9 D2) and having won each of the last five here at Etadio Gran Canaria. Four of those being one-goal margin victories.


Under 2.5 Goals is short but holds obvious appeal. The visitors seemingly content to keep their shape and be patient. Tenerife finished with the best away record in LL2, and were only beaten by a margin greater than one goal once on their travels. Suggesting extra-time could be in the offing. Especially with Las Palmas winning their last four home matches by a single goal as well as both league meetings between the sides.
