MNG vs EST Dream11 Match Preview: The Nicargua League is about to come to an end as two quality teams Managua and Real Esteli go toe-to-toe for the fate of the title hangs in the balance. The last time these two sides met, the game ended with 1-1 scoreline, as Mangua found the equalizer within the final five minutes of play. Managua topped the league and now have the all important away goal. If they go on to perform the way they have ever so regularly this season, Mangua will be grabbing hold of that title. However, Real Esteli are not going to make it easy as they finished second in the league and can certainly pack a punch in a pressure game. With that being said, the game promises to be an enticing affair.
Date- Sunday, May 9
Kick-Off- 6:30 AM (IST)
Managua will be pleased with their performance in the first leg of the final as and came back from a goal down to earn a vital away goal away at Real Esteli. The stage now seems set for Managua to win the title at home. Esteli bagged the first after the hour mark, however, Managua cancelled it out with just five minutes to spare later as Pablo Gallego found the back of the net and that proved to be the end of the scoring to leave the tie finely balanced ahead of the second leg. Managua are now undefeated in their last 17 home games in the league and will be thriving in confidence. That being said, Managua could opt for a similar eleven, although Jeremy Cuarezma’s might have to settle for the bench to make way for Ulises Pozo.
Real Esteli were in sight of a win but would have been dissapointed after conceding the equalizer in the final few minutes. But lets not forget that Esteli are the defending champions and will have the experience to see off pressure to win another championship. Marlon Lopez scored the first goal for his side and should retain his spot in the starting eleven. Esteli’s away form has been quite impressive as they've just endured two away defeats from their 10 Clausura games this season which should add further confidence. Just like Managua, Esteli could opt for a similar eleven.
