Liga Primera de Nicaragua Predictions 2019/20

Recommended Posts

Managua FC vs Real Esteli

OK, this is what it is all about. The final game of the Liga Primera de Nicaragua season in 2019/20. Managua FC versus Real Esteli kicks off at 2am BST on Sunday morning at the Estadio Nacional de Futbol. It is quite simply a case of the winner takes all. Nothing could separate these two sides in a first leg that ended 1-1. Will either side win in 90 minutes or will it require extra-time or even penalties to determine a victor?

Managua FC will feel that this is their destiny. After the disappointment of the Apertura final defeat, Emilio Aburto has led his team on a crusade of redemption. The team has been nothing short of immaculate so far and after grinding out the draw in the first leg they will feel they are in a prime position to take the win and seal the Clausura title against their rivals here.

Real Esteli might have failed to get the win they wanted at home in the first leg but they'll be pleased that there is still everything to play for in this second leg. The fact that they defeated Managua FC in the Apertura play-off final will be a psychological advantage. However, in that two-legged affair, Managua FC did actually win their home leg by a 1-0 score-line. Holver Flores may well look further back to the first meeting the two teams played in Managua FC in the Apertura league phase when Real Esteli prevailed as 3-0 winners.

I think @four-leaf could well be right here. This is a tight match between two very closely matched sides. On the face of it, I can't call a winner. I would be more surprised if this game was decided over 90 minutes than if it went beyond. If I had to back a winner by any method then I'd have to go with Managua FC. I feel they are on a mission in this Clausura phase and nothing will stop them from sealing this title. They may well need extra-time or penalties to pull it off though.

Draw @ 3.30 with Bet365

BTTS No @ 1.73 with BetVictor
