Fortress Santa Cruz for CD Tenerife?

After kicking off the season with a useful 1-1 draw away to Sevilla Athletic last Saturday, CD Tenerife crank up the home campaign this week.

On Sunday, it’s home to Cadiz, one of the other fancied teams for promotion, kick off 6pm in the Heliodoro Rodriquez Lopez stadium, Santa Cruz. The transfer window closed without the hoped for return of former goal hero Paunovic but Cristo Marerro is fit again. The Armada Sur have 2 coaches running to the game and will be in good voice.

On Wednesday September 5, it’s cup time as CD Tenerife take on Poli Ejido in the Copa del Rey (Spanish F.A.Cup) kick off 9pm. Congratulations to south based Raqui San Isidro who got through the preliminary round last week with a 1-0 away win at Caudal Deportivo and also on Wednesday, will host Racing Portuense in the next round.

News of a former backroom member at CD Tenerife, Paco Ayesteran, has reportedly quit as number 2 to former CD Tenerife manager, Rafa Benitez at Liverpool, after working with him since their Tenerife days.
