ART Municipal Jalapa vs Juventus Managua: It's Sunday night soccer in the Nicaragua Primera Division – Sean Miller picks
Juventus Managua can jump over ART Municipal Jalapa with a win Sunday night
The last soccer games until Thursday (unless we get a few more miracles) will take place Sunday night in Nicaragua.
While the top of the Nicaraguan Primera Division looks likely to be a three-way battle between Managua FC, Real Esteli FC, and Diriangen FC, the next three places in the table are wide open.
Why do those spots matter? Because the top six teams make it into the Championship playoff.
ART Municipal Jalapa and Juventus Managua FC currently sit in fifth and six, but fourth to eighth is tight.
These two teams have played nine times since September of 2018, with a 6-3 split to Juventus: there have been no draws in that time. But Juventus has won five of the last six. If you have to pick a winner, I would side with Juventus Managua. But the over 2.5 goals has hit in six of eight head to head, so that could be the better bet, especially with the way Juventus games have produced goals (16 in three matches).
