Deportivo Ocotal vs Deportivo Las Sabanas
Nicaragua – Liga Primera Clausura
Date: Saturday, 4 April 2020
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK/ 24:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Roy Fernando Bermúdez (Ocotal).
The hosts need to forget the season so far if they wish to finish strongly. Ocotal is on a 4 match losing streak at present. The last league action saw them lose to Jalapa at home with a final score of 1-2.
Sabanas are already at the bottom after 13 matches in the competition. After 10 matches without a win, they won a league game on the last matchday. But the narrow home win against Real Madriz may not be enough to defeat Ocotal.
This is the fight between two teams at the bottom of the table. Since neither side has a clear advantage we can expect a close game this Saturday.
Ocotal vs Las Sabanas: Head-to-head (h2h)
- In their 3 head to head matches, Ocotal remains unbeaten (W1, D2).
- All 3 of those games had less than 2.5 goals in total.
- The only meeting at this ground ended as a 1-1 draw, back in August 2019.
Ocotal vs Las Sabanas: Prediction
Ocotal has never lost to Sabanas in previous encounters. But in the 13 matches this season they have lost 8 and have conceded 19 goals. They are the lowest-scoring side netting just 8 goals until now. Two of their previous home matches back to back defeats too.
Sabanas have lost 6 of their 7 matches in the competition. They managed to conjure a point last time they visited this ground. But current away form does not give them any hope for Saturday. Their defense makes it difficult for them to gain points. But the recent win against Real Madriz at home got them back to winning ways and lifted their morale too.
Considering both the head to head stats and their current form I strongly believe that this one will be a stalemate. The teams have drawn 2 of their 3 previous meetings, so I am expecting a similar result on Saturday as well. I also back both of them to score since their back lines are two of the weakest in the league.
