Walter Ferretti 3/10
Draw 39/10
Deportivo Las Sabanas 15/2

Walter Ferretti, who sit fourth in the Premier Division table, head into the match heavy favourites to win. The hosts have won their last three matches in the league, scoring six goals without reply, while they’ve netted 12 times from their last three home games. The visitors have failed to win any of their last six on the road and with Walter Ferretti keeping three successive clean sheets at home, the hosts are likely to come out on top once again in what should be a straightforward victory.

Juventus Managua 4/10
Draw 34/10
CD Ocotal 57/10

Juventus Managua are on a superb run on home soil, having avoided defeat in their last seven games, winning five times, including four on the bounce. With bottom-of-the-log Ocotal without a win in any of their last seven games in the Clausura, this should be a comfortable win for the hosts.

Real Esteli 15/20
Draw 49/20
Diriangen 7/2 

Both sides will be hoping to join Managua and claim a spot in the final series, but defeat for either team here could be pivotal. Real Esteli hold the narrow advantage by virtue of a superior goal difference with just two matches remaining and a win here would almost certainly mean they finish the Clausura in second place. Esteli are unbeaten in their last six home matches with four wins, while Diriangen have been struggling for form on the road, having failed to win any of their last four, losing twice. The home win is tipped. 

6/10 Real Madriz
Draw 29/10
Chinandega 4/1 

Both teams are out of sorts and lacking confidence, therefore, it should be an evenly-matched game. Real Madriz are third bottom of the league with 14 points from 16 games. In their last four outings, they’ve lost three and drawn one. Meanwhile, Chinandega are one place above the hosts in the table on 18 points. They’ve shipped three goals in successive defeats to Diriangen and Real Esteli. The draw looks a likely outcome, but Chinandega have won the last two meetings against Real Madriz. Back Chinandega on the Win/Draw Double Chance at 23/20.

Managua 9/20
Draw 32/10
Jalapa 11/2 

Managua will confirm their spot at the top of the standings with a win over Jalapa in this game. The hosts have won six of their seven home games in the Clausura and are yet to taste defeat, while Jalapa have only won once on the road. The visitors are without a win in their last three and have failed to even register a single goal in any of those games, which doesn’t bode well for their chances. This should be a comfortable victory for Managua.

Walter Ferretti Win 3/10
Juventus Managua Win 4/10
Real Esteli Win 15/20
Chinandega Win/Draw 23/20
Managua Win 9/20
