Real Esteli, Diriangen battle for second place in Nicaraguan Primera Division Wednesday – Sean Miller picks all 5 night contests
There are five matches on the schedule in the Nicaraguan Primera Division Wednesday night, with a fight for second place on the cards.
With Managua FC five points ahead (36 points) heading into the evening, it is imperative that both Real Esteli and Diriangen try to get all three points.
These two teams have met nine times since the beginning of 2019, with Real Esteli winning four and Diriangen winning three, but Diriangen is unbeaten in the last four (two wins) head to head.
The edge has to go to Real Esteli at home, though; the team has lost just once in eight, with a plus-14 goal difference (17 goals scored, three allowed), while Diriangen is winless in four on the road.
