EST vs MNG Dream11 Match Preview: The Nicargua League is coming soon coming to an end as Real Esteli play hosts to Managua in the first leg of the playoff final. The return tie will take place on the following Wednesday. Managua topped the charts in the regular season, whereas, Real Esteli finished second as both deservingly advanced through a two-legged semifinal last week.

That being said, the upcoming contest promises to be an enticing affair.
