ART Municipal Jalapa vs. Diriangen Liga Primera de Nicaragua

Jalapa has a particularly tough run into the end of the regular season, and it begins with this home game against the Caciques on Saturday. The club from the north is fifth in the table at the moment, but anything can change in the next three games.

Diriangen is already assured of its berth in the postseason but will want to keep up the pressure on Managua and achieve the main aim of a top-two finish.

Let’s take a look how the match might play out in this Jalapa vs. Diriangen betting preview that includes the latest odds and a prediction pick.

Odds for ART Municipal Jalapa vs. Diriangen

ART Municipal Jalapa to Win+202
The Draw+206
Diriangen to Win+137

MyBookie makes Diriangen the favorite to take all three points here, but there is not much to choose between the two sides. That may have something to do with Jalapa having to raise its game after the disappointing performance in midweek.

Match Preview

With Diriangen, Managua, and Esteli still to play, the goalless draw with Las Sabanas on Wednesday was the last thing Jalapa could have done with, aside from a loss, perhaps. But that result now makes it much harder for Jalapa to make the playoffs, with everyone scrambling for those top-six places.

The reverse fixture between these two ended in a 0-0 draw back at the start of March, so Jalapa can take some heart from that. The club’s goal difference is not great, though, so even a loss here must not be by too large a margin.

Diriangen got back to winning ways on Wednesday with a convincing 3-0 victory over Chinandega, a side that had started to look dangerous in the last few rounds. Victor Parreles scored two in that game and will be looking to extend his goal tally against Jalapa.

With Real Esteli only managing to draw its midweek game, Diriangen now has its destiny in its own hands and could guarantee a semifinal spot with a win here and other games going its way.

ART Municipal Jalapa vs. Diriangen Pick

  • Diriangen to Win

Diriangen had only lost one game in the entire Clausura season up until two weeks ago, so two losses in three games suggested some nerves were beginning to show. But with the big win in the week against Chinandega, it looks like Nicaragua’s most decorated club is back in business. Three more points here should just about be enough to bypass the need for a quarterfinal game entirely.
