THE TEAM NEWS

DIRIANGEN

  • Diriangen slipped to their first defeat against leaders Managua after going 13 games unbeaten as they conceded a 93rd minute winner to succumb to a loss in what was a feisty top-of-the-table encounter.
  • They will have to do without Danilo Zuniga who was sent off midway through the second half in the loss to Managua so that will see either Agner Acuna or Alvaro Hernandez come into the starting line-up for him.
  • With six games remaining of the regular season, Diriangen have not given up hope of finishing in the top two places and they will be highly motivated to bounce back here in front of their home fans.

WALTER FERRETTI

  • Walter Ferretti are coming off a stunning 7-0 win over Chinandega at the weekend as they took advantage of their opponents picking up a red card just prior to half-time and they racked up five second half goals.
  • Mexican striker Fernando Villalpando scored a hat-trick in that game to take his tally to eight goals from 10 matches in the Clausura and he will be key to their hopes against the team that sit one place above them in third.
  • That emphatic win over Chinandega brought an end to their three-match losing streak and they will be keen to build on that win although this trip to Diriamba to face the home side represents a tough assignment.

THE PREDICTION

Third meets fourth here and it will be the visitors who make the trip to Diriamba full of confidence after they picked up an impressive 7-0 win at the weekend. Diriangen, however, will not be disheartened despite coming off a rare defeat to the leaders. They have been in fine form and it was only a 93rd-minute goal that consigned them to the loss. The will be keen to bounce back here and get back to winning ways which they should be able to do against Walter Ferretti.
