ART Municipal Jalapa vs Diriangen FC
Nicaragua- Liga Primera- Clausura
Date: Saturday, 11 April 2020
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK/ 24:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Roy Fernando Bermúdez (Ocotal)
Diriangen secured a narrow lead of 2 points in the second spot on the points table. After 15 rounds they are just 3 points from the top of the league. Two latest defeats against the Managua sides have hit them hard, to say the least.
The hosts are coming on the back of a goalless draw against Sabanas. They will want to get back to winning ways soon. But their head to head stats against Diriangen at home does not give them hope. It would be history if they manage to win this one.

Jalapa vs Diriangen Prediction
In their 5 previous clashes at this ground, the hosts have never tasted victory. Three of those games were draws and this upcoming game may also have the same outcome. Diriangen is on a 2 match losing streak away from home. The latest of those was against Juventus Managua, who was way below them in the table. So I am backing this upcoming match to be a stalemate at the end of ninety minutes.
The majority of the results of both these teams were low scoring affairs. In 8 recent home matches of Jalapa, the final score had less than 2.5 goals. They failed to score against Chinandega in the latest match here which ended as a defeat. Similar scores can be seen in the away matches of Diriangen as well. So I am backing both teams to not score on Saturday.
