CN vs LM Dream11 Match Prediction

CN vs LM Dream11: Having lost the opening game of the playoffs series, Basketball Club Chinandega will be looking to make an immediate return in the series and go level, when they play hosts to Leones de Managua in the 2020 Nicaragua Basketball League on early Sunday morning (IST).

What can you expect here?

The game one of the series gaped open the hige difference between both team's profile and calibre. Leones de Managua were a beast in the first game, as they pounded Chinandega 106-51 in what was one of the best playoff performance by any team in the post-season of Nicaragua Basketball League.
So you can expect Leones to be on the positive side of the result once again. That being said, emulating the performance of the first game will be hard for Leones here and we expect the win-margin to be relatively less here.

What happened in the regular season?

The league has 20 teams, with each team playing once against each other. As per the current format, top-16 teams qualify for the playoffs. Chinandega finished the regular season outside the top half of the table and had to settle with a negative return having won 8, and losing 11 of their 19 matches. Leones de Managua, on the other hand, was the 5th best team in the regular season as they finished with 15 wins and just four defeats. So to some extent, the result in the last game fell in line with both team's record in the regular season.

Season match-up:
Chinandega | Leones de Managua
Games: 19 | 19
Wins: 08 | 15
