Prediction and odds for the game: Managua FC (11/10) v Juventus Managua (21/10)
When: Monday 23rd March 2020, Kick-off 00:00 AM
Where: Estadio Nacional de Futbol (UNAN)
In the early stages of Monday, Managua FC host Juventus Managua
The home team has made a decent start to their season in the Nicaraguan top-flight. They are currently second place in the table, trailing top of the table Diriangen by just a point.
Managua FC have won four of their last six matches in the Primera Division. Last time out they recorded a 1-0 win at Walter Ferretti. The result means that they are unbeaten in three league outings, having won twice. Although their recent league matches have not necessarily been high-scoring, both teams have scored in four of their last five Primera Division outings.
Managua are unbeaten in their last ten home games in the Primera Liga, having recorded seven wins in normal time and one victory on pens. The home side has been relatively strong in defence on home soil, as they have kept clean sheets in five of their last eight home games in the Primera Liga. The home team has also been prolific at the other end of the pitch on home soil, scoring at least twice in seven of their last ten league games.
The visitors are seventh place in the table, a point outside the final series play-off spots. They have collected just ten points from their first nine league matches. The visitors have started the campaign in an inconsistent manner. A 5-0 win last time out against Las Sabanas means they have won just once in their last five matches.
However, they have also suffered just one defeat in seven league outings in the Primera Liga, as four of their last seven matches in the league have finished all square.
The visitors recent league games have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six Primera Liga matches. Solid defensive displays of late have been a big factor in those low-scoring, as the visitors have kept four clean sheets in the Primera Liga.
Juventus Managua have a poor recent away record in the top-flight, as they have failed to win in 12 league games on their travels. Their recent away matches in the Primera Liga have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six away outings.
The home side are favourites for this derby match and we are backing them to come out on top in a tight game. The other bet we are recommending is the under 2.5 goals, as Managua FC are strong on home soil, while the visitors have been defensively solid.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 11/10 and/or the under 2.5 goals scored also at odds of 11/10. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
