Walter Ferretti were knocked out of the Apertura semifinals earlier this season and they have chance to make amends for the disappointment once again, having qualified for Clausura Quarter-finals by finishing 4th in the standings.

Historically, Ferretti enjoyed success in this h2h fixture, but Jalapa broke the shackles this season with a draw and win in the two regular fixtures of the current campaign.
Ferretti vs Jalapa Head-to-head
Ferretti lead the h2h by a clear margin bagging 7 wins from 12 games as against 2 defeats and 3 draws.
Jalapa did have the last laugh when these two met on 22nd March with a 2-0 win at the Estadio Alejandro Ramos.
Ferretti are unbeaten at home against Jalapa since 2015, the six fixtures saw them winning four time, however the most recent 2 are stalemates.
Jalapa did bag a 2-2 draw at this ground earlier this season, they were 2 goals down at the half-time whistle.
Ferretti vs Jalapa Prediction
This is another Nicaraguan matchup where clear home dominance can be seen against poor record from visiting side.
Ferretti, who finished fourth in the overall standings have 19 of the total 30 points coming from home matches (6W,1D,2L). The most impressive aspect is the 23 goals scored from those 9 home games against 7 conceded.
Jalapa are traditionally poor on the road and things remain the same in the current campaign as well. With 1 win, 3 draws and 6 losses, they are ranked 6th in the away form table. The goal aggregate during the period is a -9.
This is why, home win looks like a strong first option to me, the odds are decent too, at 1.50.
As an alternate, I will go with the over 2.5 goals full-time as the duels between these two sides hardly disappoint in the final third.
