Chinandega vs. Juventus Managua Pick – Nicaragua Primera Division April 1, 2020
Time is running out for both of these clubs to make a real claim for a spot in the playoffs of the Nicaragua Primera Divsion. But Juventus Managua would seem to have a better chance at the moment and will look to consolidate its position with a good result here.
Chinandega’s players have to somehow pick themselves up after the humiliating thrashing at the hands of Walter Ferretti on matchday 12 and hope that more points can be won over the next few weeks.
Let’s dig into this fixture with my Chinandega vs. Juventus betting preview which concludes with a free betting pick.
Chinandega vs. Juventus Managua Odds
- Chinandega to Win; +162
- The Draw; +205
- Juventus Managua to Win; +123
Before the heavy defeat at the weekend, this game looked fairly even, and BetOnline’s reading of the fixture looks pretty spot on. It all depends on how Chinandega reacts to the result against Walter Ferretti as to what ends up happening here.
Chinandega might not have expected much from its game against Walter Ferretti, but the 7-0 thrashing it received will have surprised everyone. Nicaraguan Primera League games don’t normally have many goals to celebrate, so there will not have been many who went for the total goals bet in such a way.
If the morale is low in the Chinandega changing room, that defeat could spell the end of its Clausura playoff challenge. It wasn’t looking too good before that game, to be honest, but now the players might not have anything left to give.
With most of the attention on the Chinandega result, we have to remember that Juventus Managua also lost at the weekend. The 2-0 loss to close rivals Jalapa stretched the gap between the top five and the rest of the league and left Juventus definitely in the bottom half of the table hoping to cling on to that final playoff place.
The recent victories over Walter Ferretti and Las Sabanas were much needed, but there has to be a concerted effort now to ensure that sides like Chinandega are beaten if the postseason is going to feature Hector Medina’s side.
Chinandega vs. Juventus Managua Pick
- The Draw; +205
The odds might change with some bookmakers after that 7-0 loss to Walter Ferretti, but I’m counting on Chinandega to play for pride, at the very least, over the next few games. This would have always been a close game, and I don’t think that will change purely because of recent results. The price for the draw makes it the best value bet here.
