Real Esteli FC vs Deportivo Las Sabanas Prediction

Sergio Rodriguez’s men are trying to be back-to-back champions, and they are currently placed third in the table. However, they are just two points below the toppers, and as an added bonus, the top two teams are taking on each other this weekend. 

On top of that, Rodriguez’s men are pitted against arguably the worst squad in the whole competition. Not only are Vanegas’s men placed bottom-most in the table, but they had been promoted to the top flight just at the end of the last season.

In addition, they are winless in their prior nine match-ups in a row, and are on a losing streak of four away fixtures as well. On the other hand, their counterparts won four of their past five overall games, and are on a winning run of three games at home. The combined scoreline for these three matches is 11-1, in favor of the champions.

Moreover, the title-holders also hold a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at this stadium, and in fact are yet to concede in such a fixture at this venue.

Considering all these observations, it’s estimated that the hosts Real Esteli are on course to record a monster win this Sunday.
