Walter Ferretti vs. Deportivo Las Sabanas Odds, Prediction, and Pick – Liga Primera de Nicaragua, April 15
With just two games to go in the regular season, there are already a few clubs out of the running for a place in the playoffs. But for the rest, every single point is vital. Walter Ferretti will be expecting three more here to help its own chances of a top-two finish.
Deportivo Las Sabanas, on the other hand, cannot make the Clausura postseason, but it can ruin the chances of its opponents over the next week.
Let’s delve into the details in this Walter Ferretti vs. Deportivo Las Sabanas betting preview.
Walter Ferretti vs. Deportivo Las Sabanas Odds
Las Sabanas might already be eliminated from a chance of the playoffs, but this is a side that has surprised a number of the top teams this year. The performance during the Apertura should not be forgotten, either. Walter Ferretti is the understandable favorite here, but the visitors could have another shock result in its locker before the end of the season.
A narrow 1-0 win away at Ocotal at the weekend ensured that Walter Ferretti goes into the last two rounds still with a chance of taking one of the top two spots. It may be an outside chance, but it is a possibility. Top goal scorer Fernando Villalpando didn’t manage to add to his tally in the last game, but he will be a threat here.
There is a four-point gap between Walter Ferretti and Diriangen and Real Esteli now, so even a win here might not be enough to finish in the top two. But there is a chance we should expect this side to push for all three points.
Deportivo Las Sabanas’ Clausura season is essentially over. It was another spirited performance at the weekend, as it went down by just the single goal at home to league leaders Managua. But that defeat makes a return to the playoffs impossible now.
But there have been some curiously good results over the last few weeks, and Walter Ferretti could find that Las Sabanas is not ready to just give up. There still seems to be some pride at stake for these players, so this could be closer than the league table suggests.

Walter Ferretti to Win-238
Whereas Deportivo Ocotal looks to have already given up on the season, Las Sabanas has continued to battle in its games and could make this one tough for the hosts. But with Walter Ferretti knowing that there is still a slim chance of a quarterfinal bye, I think that it will just about take this one.
