Competition: Nicaragua Premier League
Market: Managua win
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Once again turning our attention to the Nicaragua Premier League this weekend, league leaders Managua will look to widen their buffer at the top of the table when they make the trip to Real Madriz on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, despite appearing to turn a corner with back-to-back wins against Deportivo Ocotal and Municipal Jalapa last month, Real Madriz came crashing back down to earth with what was a shock 2-1 loss away at rock-bottom Sabanas earlier in the week. Still sat outside the top-six and even more worrying for the inconsistent hosts, Real Madriz also hold a woeful record against the league leaders. Including a 3-1 defeat when the two sides faced off back in February, Los Somoteños have lost five of their last six matches against Managua and have not beaten Saturday’s guests since April 2018.
As for the visitors, while Managua may have been left disappointed to have only picked up a point against title contenders Real Estelí last weekend, La Maquinaria Azul still hold a two-point buffer at the top of the table and remain in pole position to lift back-to-back Nicaraguan crowns. Winning four of their last five Premier League outings and in the midst of an unbeaten run that stems back to the start of March, Emilio Aburto’s men have also landed back-to-back victories on the road. Losing just a pair of matchups this season and given their stellar record against Saturday’s hosts, we’re backing another routine victory on their travels for Managua.
