CD Tenerife beat another top four team, and in turn, have become a side that must be taken into account for a playoff place in this final stretch of competition.

Qualification for the play-offs is no longer a pipe dream, it is something tangible, which is within reach of a committed team that has been determined to show their true form.
This time Baraja's men struck against one of the clear favourites for promotion, away at the billionaire club, Almería.

Almería started quickly and opened the scoring in the 6th minute through a great solo effort from Darwin Nuñez.
CD Tenerife stayed positive and equalised in the 36th minute through Luis Milla from the penalty spot, going into half time 1-1.
In the second half both teams looked for a way through, and Tenerife didn't seemed overwhelmed in any way by their top four opposition.
In tbe 89th minute the game changed when Balliu got sent off for Almería for a second bookable offense, and CDT took full advantage.
In the final attack of the game, Alex Bermejo got on the end of a good cross and volleyed the ball home from 10 yards out to seal a good, and important win in the 92nd minute for Tenerife.

With guaranteed safety in the league, they are now pushing for a playoff place and performing well against teams expected to beat them.
Next....at home to Zaragoza on the 9th.
