Juventus Managua vs. Diriangen Liga Primera de Nicaragua

Diriangen is the most successful club in Nicaragua, but the 2018 Clausura title was the first in quite a while, and fans of the team will be hoping that the form it has shown this season can continue into the playoffs. There are a few games to go before then, and a short trip to Managua to take on Juventus comes up next.

This will be a game between two clubs with different ideas of how to play out the remaining five fixtures. Juventus needs some good results to push itself into real contention for a playoff spot, but getting anything from this one is a tough ask.

Check out my Juventus Managua vs. Diriangen betting preview for the scoop.

Juventus Managua vs. Diriangen Odds

Juventus Managua to Win+140
The Draw+185
Diriangen to Win+137

BetOnline has this game fairly even with its pricing, but I’m not as confident that Juventus Managua has just as good a chance of coming away with a win. Diriangen is still very close to the top two in the league, and the odds for an away win look good to me.

Match Prediction

Juventus Managua has chosen a bad time to experience a dip in form, with three of the last four games going the way of its opponents. The latest defeat was a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Chinandega. High-scoring games have been a feature recently for the capital club, but most of them have been at its expense.

The game between these two sides earlier in the season ended in a narrow victory for Diriangen, and there has not been too much on show in the last few games to convince anyone that a repeat performance isn’t in store on Saturday.

The one thing going for Juventus Managua might be that Diriangen has been particularly goal-shy this season. The club may find itself third in the table with just two defeats since the start of the year, but in 13 games, it has only managed 16 goals — far fewer than Managua and Real Esteli.

If the victories keep on coming, then there will not be too much alarm at that statistic, but the longer the game goes on without a goal, the more nervous the players, fans, and manager will get. The addition of a goal-scoring striker would give this club a much better chance of picking up some more silverware in the coming years.

  • Diriangen to Win

Juventus Managua’s recent games have shown that its defense is suspect and has conceded fewer goals than only one other club in the league this season. Diriangen should win this quite easily, and I feel that the odds for that outcome look very good value.
