Sagittarius of the Nicaraguan championship leader?
Only three points separate Managua from pursuers like Real Esteli and Diriangen. To ensure that the point cushion is preserved, a home win on matchday 15 is almost a must for the blue-yellow team. Managua FC have already missed a win in the last two games. Ocotal is the second worst team in the Nicaraguan Clausura.
At Managua vs. Ocotal is the table leader according to odds of the best bookmakers in the favorites role. In the first half there was a surprising defeat at Ocotal for the Blau-Gelben. If it goes according to the previous home record of Managua FC, anything but a home win of “Los Leones Azules” would be a big surprise.
On the championship course, Managua FC do not want to take the lead in the regular season.

Managua – Statistics & current form
The points cushion from Managua FC has shrunk. The Blau-Gelben played two consecutive draws and are only three points ahead of the pursuers. In order to defend the lead in the remaining four games of the regular season, loss of points is prohibited – especially in the supposed routine tasks.
Home strength is a decisive factor
One of them is on this match day. Managua FC welcomes guests from Ocotal against a ghost backdrop. As expected, the blue and yellow are favored by bookmakers, which is mainly due to the strong home record of “Los Leones Azules”. Managua won five of six home games in the running Clausura.
Only in the top game against Real Esteli was there a draw for the blue-yellow team. The team around head coach Emilio Aburto apparently had not yet recovered from this. Last matchday there was a disappointing draw at Real Madriz. Only for the second time in this year’s Clausura Managua FC was without a goal.
Shooting festival against Ocotal?
It is quite possible that an offensive spectacle will follow. In the first half, Managua FC went bust at Ocotal. Now the Aburto team can repay the defeat and thus maintain the lead. The “Los Leones Azules” have been unbeaten for eight games. If Managua prevails against Ocotal, odds of 1.26 will be paid for tip 1.

Ocotal – Statistics & current form
The return to the Nicaraguan House of Lords certainly imagined CD Ocotal differently. The “Gallos Segovianos” have participated only once in the championship playoffs since their resurgence. The downward trend continues this season. In the aperture there was only eighth place for Ocotal.
Second worst team in Clausura
After 14 days of play, things don’t look any better in Clausura either. As the table bottom, the gap to a playoff spot is now eight points. With only nine goals in 14 games, Ocotal is the weakest offensive in the highest Nicaraguan league. After four defeats in a row, there was a point win after a draw on the previous day.
The result was rather less pleasant for the “Guerreros de las Segovias”, especially since the home right against the bottom of the table Sabanas was thereby lost. Abroad, CD Ocotal has so far only scored a single point in six away games. This makes Ocotal the weakest away team in Clausura.
Point gain in Managua rather utopian?
Given the miserable away record, the fact that the team around coach Reynaldo Clavasquin provides a surprise in the Nicaraguan capital is rather unrealistic. Across all seasons, Ocotal has only had two wins in their last 19 away games, although away wins against teams like Jalapa and Sabanas should not be praised too much.
Probable lineup of Ocotal:
Lopez – Dorian, Gutierrez, Zavala, Obando – Pastrana, Meraz – Caceres, Moncada, Rodriguez – Aguirre
