Competition: Nicaraguan Premier League
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 19/20 @ Bet 365
Once again turning our attention to the Nicaraguan Premier League for this weekend’s fixtures, Walter Ferretti will be hoping to extend their buffer in the play-off spots when they make the trip to rock-bottom Deportivo Ocotal in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Starting with the hosts, despite putting in a spirited display against 10-man Managua earlier in the week, Deportivo Ocotal’s 2-1 defeat away at the defending champions has extended on what has been a worrying rut for Randall Moreno’s men. Falling to the bottom of the Premier League and collecting just 10 points out of a possible 45, Gallos Segovianos have now failed to win any of their last six top-flight appearances, losing five of those matchups. Now seen to be a favorite to lift the wooden spoon this year, Ocotal have shipped at least a pair of goals in each of their last five defeats on the bounce and they have also continued to show some rather glaring inconsistencies on home soil. Including back-to-back 2-1 defeats against Municipal Jalapa and Real Estelí over the past three weeks, Sunday’s hosts have won just one of their last six matchups in front of their own supporters.
As for the visitors, putting in what was another rampant display and picking up a 4-0 romp against Real Madriz earlier in the week, Walter Ferretti have continued on what has been their brightest run of the season so far. Landing back-to-back victories, including a stunning 7-0 win against Chinandega last month, the Red and Blacks have collected nine points out of a possible 12 over the past month and will also be boosted by their eye-catching record against Ocotal. Picking up a 2-1 win when they hosted Moreno’s men last month, Walter Ferretti have won each of their last five straight meetings against the hosts. Remarkably, with 10 of the last 11 matchups between the two sides seeing over 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing another lively contest at the Estadio Roy Fernando Bermúdez on Sunday morning.
Bet: Over 2.5 goals at Deportivo Ocotal vs Walter Ferretti 19/20 for Sunday’s Nicaraguan Premier League contest @ Bet 365
