Our prediction for this Other match:
Thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 win over Diriangen Managua extended their winning run in the Nicaragua Primera Division to four matches, with the team retaining top position in the standings. However, Real Esteli are breathing down their neck, and, no doubt, they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Thursday’s derby. It has to be noted that midfielder Christiano Fernandez da Lima misses the match through suspension as he was sent off in the 2-1 win over Diriangen.
The visitors, on the other hand, produced anything but brilliant performance in a hard-fought 1-0 win over rock-bottom Deportivo Las Sabanas, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. Should Managua happen to win the midweek fixture, they will keep their 100% record at home in the national championship intact.
