Deportivo Ocotal vs. Walter Ferretti Odds, Prediction, and Pick – Liga Primera de Nicaragua, April 12

Deportivo Ocotal vs. Walter Ferretti Liga Primera de Nicaragua

In this Deportivo Ocotal vs. Walter Ferretti betting preview, I share the odds, my thoughts on both teams, and provide my betting pick for the match.

A run of six games without a win has seen Deportivo Ocotal drop down to the bottom of the Liga Primera and in real danger of being relegated after a similarly disappointing Apertura season.

Playing Walter Ferretti at this stage is probably not ideal given that the Managua side is now regaining some form after a poor spell of its own as it battles to consolidate its position in the top six.

Deportivo Ocotal to Win+305
The Draw+248
Walter Ferretti to Win-129

Online sportsbook MyBookie has taken Ocotal’s abysmal recent run of results into account here and made it the big underdog, even though it is hosting the game. The odds for a draw are potentially interesting, but it would need a complete turnaround from Ocotal to finish with even a share of the spoils.

Match Preview

The Clausura season did not get off to a good start for Deportivo Ocotal, and it hasn’t really improved at all over the past two and a bit months. Just two wins all season has meant that it was only a surprise how long it took Las Sabanas to leapfrog Ocotal and condemn it to last place.

There is precious little to hold onto for Ocotal going into this game. Walter Ferretti won with a soul-destroying last-minute penalty when the two teams met earlier in the season, and Ocotal has not scored more than one goal in a game since the beginning of March. With just ten goals scored all season, the probability of a home win looks remote.

That’s good news for Walter Ferretti, who has overcome a slight blip recently to win three of the last four and finds itself comfortably in the playoff positions and still with an outside chance of getting a quarterfinal bye.

The 1-0 win over Real Esteli was a huge confidence boost for the club, and that showed in the very next game as it thrashed Real Madriz 4-0. The young Mexican striker Fernando Villalpando scored in both of those games, and he is the league’s top goal scorer this season. He may well add to his tally against Ocotal.

Deportivo Ocotal vs. Walter Ferretti Prediction and Pick

Pick
  • Walter Ferretti to Win
    -129

Deportivo Ocotal should be playing for its top-flight status but seems resigned to the fact that it will finish bottom of the pile in the Clausura. It can only hope that Real Madriz and Jalapa’s aggregate points totals do not get any bigger over the next few games. The players at Walter Ferretti will not concern themselves with that but should be able to win this fairly easily and then prepare for the upcoming playoffs.
