Competition: Nicaraguan Premier League
Market: Walter Ferretti win
Odds: 1/2 @ Bet 365
Once again turning our attention to the midweek Nicaraguan Premier League fixtures, a high-flying Walter Ferretti will look to extend on their top-two charge when they host a struggling Las Sabanas late on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in yet another professional display away at another struggler in Deportivo Ocotal over the weekend, Walter Ferretti have continued on what has been by far their most successful spell of the season so far. Landing a 1-0 win late on Sunday night, the Red and Blacks have won their last three Premier League matchups on the bounce and have collected 12 points out of a possible 15 over the past month. With that run also highlighted by a stunning 7-0 romp against top-six hopefuls Chinandega last month, there is no doubt that Head Coach Flavio Da Silva will be most impressed by his side’s continued displays at the back. Now going over 300 minutes without picking the ball out of their own net, it should also be noted that Walter Ferretti have landed three clean sheets on the bounce on home soil. Sat within touching distance of climbing into the top-two, Wednesday’s hosts should be confident of making another statement in midweek.
As for the visitors, despite putting in a plucky display against league leaders Managua last weekend, Las Sabanas’ 1-0 defeat has seen them extend on a worrying rut. Holding just a one-point buffer from falling to the foot of the Premier League standings, Jorge Vanegas’ men have managed to win just one of their last 16 appearances, a run that stems back to the 2nd of February. Opening Wednesday’s contest as a rightful underdog, there is no doubt that Las Sabanas will also be concerned by their worrying record against the midweek hosts. Including a 2-0 defeat when they faced off against Walter Ferretti last month, the Whites have lost all three of their previous meetings against Da Silva’s side. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a comfortable home victory late on Wednesday night.
Bet: Walter Ferretti 1/2 to beat Las Sabanas in Wednesday’s Nicaraguan Premier League matchup @ Bet 365
