Tenerife drew (1-1) this Friday against Sporting de Gijón, in the first duel of LaLiga SmartBank matchday eight, which allowed Luis Ramis’ men to save their fall to the bottom of the table and stop those from Abelardo in his attempt to cling to the promotion positions.

The premises returned to leave doubts in defense. The ghost of Ponferradina reappeared with another concession behind. A loss in the ball exit in which Cristo González snatched the ball from José León to beat Juan Soriano and culminate his astuteness with the first goal of the night after fifteen minutes of play.

Something that the Sporting attacker did not celebrate when the former’s law was fulfilled. The visitors, who will sleep in playoff positions, were superior in the first half and showed their punch with eight shots. Actions in which they created danger, although Soriano was vital for the people of Tenerife with two good hands.

Luis Ramis’ men did not give up and also enjoyed opportunities to level the scoreboard. In fact, after the injury of Nacho Méndez, replaced by José Gragera, a center by Teto ended up on the crossbar without much luck for them. A lack of success that left them with the task to do in the second half.

After the break, Tenerife tried all the ways and found their long-awaited prize in the last ten minutes. An insistence that ended with a goal from Nacho Martínez, who tried his luck from the front. The lateral shot went to the right post and ended up inside the goal with the help of the post.

A goal that put the scoreboard on a table. In the case of the locals, a point that saves them from falling to the bottom of the table, while the visitors remain in promotion positions in the absence of the results of the other applicants in the fight for the noble zone of the classification.
