A win is a must for both teams if they are particular about getting a direct entry into the semifinals of the playoffs. As of now, they are placed second and third in the table with 31 points each, while Managua is at the top with 36 points, and Ferretti is in the fourth spot with 27 points.

This gives both teams the opportunity to play for a victory without facing consequences. They have a lot to gain, while risking not that much.
And as has been the case, this is the perfect scenario for a goal-fest, especially between two in-form squads. Likely, expect several goals this Thursday at the Estadio Independencia.
