Top Clubs Expected to Return to Winning Ways on Wednesday

Nicaraguan soccer has never known this level of international attention but the actual game has changed and despite focused during the game, the players don’t go in for a 50/50 ball with the same aggressiveness, they are always thinking if their opponents or some of their colleagues have the disease. The games are being played behind closed doors and that’s a plus for the visiting sides. The number of confirmed cases had risen to six by Monday, so we don’t expect a suspension of the league, at least for this week. For the 2nd consecutive week, we are here to deliver a parlay bet. There are 2 rounds of fixtures happening this week and we will cover for of them.

Managua FC vs Ocotal

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Opening Line: Managua FC -357 with 5Dimes

Leaders Managua failed to return to winning ways following their 1-1 draw with Esteli being held to a goalless draw Real Madriz on the road. That’s not a huge problem for them as both of their followers Esteli and Diriangen lost last weekend to Ferretti and Juventus Managua respectively. They enter this match on the back of 8-game unbeaten run and they will probably finish the regular season 1st in the standings and earn their playoffs semifinals spot.

On the other side, Ocotal have been in poor form all season long, sitting 9th in the standings, and having the worst defense in the league with just 9 goals scored in 14 games. They won just 1 point on the road this season scoring just 2 goals in the process. We don’t expect them to find the back of the net, so we don’t fancy a high-scoring affair.

Soccer Pick: Managua FC to win and under 4.5 goals in the match at -227 (1.44) with BetOnline

Esteli vs Juventus Managua

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Opening Line: Esteli -250 with Intertops

Coming after a loss in their previous match with Ferretti, 2nd placed Esteli will desperately try to win this one and consolidate their 2nd position in the standings which will earn them a playoff semis spot. They are fighting Diriangen for a top 2 finish as they are equal on points with 4 matches to go till the end of the regular season. On the other side, Juventus Managua destroyed Diriangen last weekend beating them 3-0 on their turf.

Unfortunately, they are very poor on the road winning just 2 points in 7 away games during this season. Esteli’s head-to-head record against Juventus is brilliant. They won their previous 7 home matches scoring at least 2 goals in each match. We expect an entertaining game with at least 3 goals on the scoreboard. Juventus are sitting 2 points behind 6th placed Chinandega so they will definitely push to pull off the upset and climb the standings.

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5 goals in the game at -125 (1.8) with BetOnline

Ferretti vs Real Madriz

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Opening Line: Ferretti -167 with Heritage

Ferretti picked up an important win as they edged Real Esteli last weekend closing the gap on the top spots. Real Madriz managed to keep leaders Managua FC to a goalless draw last weekend, but we don’t expect them to book their playoffs tickets this season as they are sitting 4 points behind 6th placed Chinandega. The visitors have lost all but one of their away games and they enter this game on the back of the 4-match losing streak, conceding at least 2 goals in the process. The hosts are expected to win this match and secure a top 6 finish. With an average of 2.7 goals per match in the league home matches for Ferretti, the over 2.5 goals should be the play.

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5 goals at -152 (1.66) with BetOnline
