Managua FC vs Real Esteli FC Prediction
These two sides are the best in the competition at the moment, and both are chasing a ticket to the semis. They are ideally placed at the top of the table, but the most successful team in the history of the league, Dirinagen, are placed third, and are actively chasing them. As such, both teams will be desperate for the three points.
Moreover, the season is about to enter its climatic stages, and a win in this 13th round will give the victor a huge push towards finishing first in the table, and for the further playoffs as well.
Aburto’s men are on a four-game winning run, and a 12-match unbeaten run at home. Of these 12, ten were wins as well. They have also scored two or more goals in 16 of their preceding 24 appearances at home, and importantly, hold a 100% winning record at home in the league.
On the other hand, Rodriguez’s men are on a four-match winning run, and were unbeaten in four of their previous five away games. Most importantly, they had recorded 16 of the last 20 h2h wins, and nine of the prior eleven at this venue. They had also scored thrice or more in two of the last three h2h encounters here, and twice or more in 8 of the past 13 such games.
Taking into account all these observations, count on a goal-fest this Thursday, between these in-form and determined squads.
