Our prediction for this Other match:
A spot in the Nicaragua Clausura playoffs semis will be at stake when Diriangen and Juventus Managua face each other at Estadio Cacique Diriangen on Thursday morning. Diriangen recorded a 3-1 win over ten-man Real Madriz in their last game of the regular season, with the team extending their winning run at home to five matches. Over the years Flavio Rego’s troops have turned their home ground into a real fortress, and we predict that they are going to defend home-field advantage in the Clausura quarter-finals.
Juventus Managua, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, but thanks to a 1-1 draw with Deportivo Las Sabanas, they sneaked into the play-offs. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Jaime Raul’s charges have been anything but impressive on the road in Clausura this season. In their last meeting at Estadio Cacique Diriangen defeated Juventus Managua 1-0.
