Chinandega vs. Real Esteli Odds, Prediction, and Pick – Liga Primera de Nicaragua, April 11
Chinandega had bounced back from that humiliating defeat at the hands of Walter Ferretti the other week and into contention for a top-six finish, but the 3-0 reverse to Diriangen on Wednesday has severely dented its chances once again.
Now it must face a Real Esteli team that has also begun to falter but at least managed to sneak a point in its midweek fixture. There is a real three-way race for the top two places now, and Real Esteli will want to record a win here to make sure Managua and Diriangen don’t have an easy last few games.
You can find more details below in this Chinandega vs. Real Esteli betting preview.
Chinandega vs. Real Esteli Odds
Even Real Esteli’s recent dip in form hasn’t persuaded BetVictor not to make it the favorite to take all three points here. Chinandega may be the home side, but its results have been patchy of late, and there is not much confidence that it can deal with the attacking force of this weekend’s opponents.
Chinandega is just about holding on to its top-six position at the moment and is looking to veteran Colombian striker Marlon Barrios to score the goals to keep it in the hunt for a playoff berth. But the 3-0 loss to Diriangen in the week has weakened its chances of making the postseason.
That loss came after two very good wins, over Juventus Managua and Jalapa, and home field advantage will really need to be put to good use here to turn things around once again. If Barrios can cause some problems for the Esteli defense, there just might be a chance.
But even that looks a remote possibility, given that Esteli has only conceded nine goals in 15 Clausura games. That’s the best record in the league and one that could take the club into the top two, even if it is just on goal difference. Esteli had been scoring a lot of goals during a successful period last month as well so will want to get back to that way of playing.
Esteli put five past Chinandega earlier in the season with both top scorers, Luis Acuna and Jorge Betancur, finding the net that day. A repeat of that kind of performance in Chinandega would definitely please the fans of the northern club.
Chinandenga vs. Real Esteli Prediction and Pick
Real Esteli to Win-154
Even taking into account the badly timed backward step as far as results go, I think that Real Esteli will still be too strong defensively for a Chinandega side that has conceded a lot of goals this season. Esteli has only let in more than one goal on one occasion this year, and I don’t think that statistic is going to be altered this weekend.
