Leones MGA vs Costa Caribe team news:

Leones MGA team news:
Status out: None.
Status Questionable: Manuel McKenzie, Daniel Tenorio and Alfredo Borge were deemed fit to play the last match and had a good impact on the court. The trio should be fit for this match as well.
Jose Perez is not in good form these days and fantasy players may be better off without him in this game, while Billy Gallardo is also a doubt for this match.
Note: Henry Zelaya, Kevin Alvarado, and Mario Garcia can be ignored by Dream11 players.

Leones MGA active roster: Jonathan Hodgson, Rogelio Bermudez, Jose Perez, Manuel Mackenzie, Alfredo Borge, Marvin Omier, Peter Martinez, Kevin Alvarado, Mario Garcia, Flavio Obando, Danny Gomez, Daniel Tenorio, Billy Gallardo, Lester Zelaya, GioVanny Umana

Leones MGA Key Players:

  • Manuel McKenzie: He was definitely in top form for the team as he racked up around 40 points in the last game on Dream11.
  • Alfredo Borge: He showed in the last game what he brings to the table. A player worth taking a risk.
  • Flavio Obando: He can be a good two-way player for the team

Costa Caribe team news:
Status out: None.
Status Questionable: Vansdell Thomas was fit to play the last game and should be fine for this match as well.
Note: Jack Hodgson Lezama is not being involved these days, and this may be the case here again. Joshua Christopher is also not a good option to consider.
Larel Pacheco is also spending time on squad's fringes these days and could be overlooked here again.

Costa Caribe roster: Kevin Vivas, E V Gutierrez, Elkin Romero Moncada, Jason West, Dirk Campbell, Kerry Clair, Luder Hernandez, Brandon Wilson, Moses Malone, Vansdell Thomas, Joshua Christopher, Sydney Castaneda Obando, Larrel Pacheco, Fritz Cox, Denis Munguia Gonzalez, Jack Hodgson Lezama

Costa Caribe Key Players:

  • Vansdell Thomas: He was in terrific form for the team upon his return and can' be ignored.
  • Fritz Cox: One of the leading players on Costa Caribe's roster.
  • Kerry Clair: He is definitely a player who has taken his game to unexpected heights.
  • Dirk Campbell: Struggled a bit in the last match, but he is someone who can pop up with something really special.
  • Denis Manguia Gonzalez: He brings a lot of value to the fold due to the form he is in at the moment.
  • Luder Hernandez: He was once again on DreamTeam following another solid game for Caribe.
  • Moses Malone: A bit inconsistent but the last game was a good reminder that the grand league is all about taking a risk, and he is someone you never know.

LM vs CC Dream11 Today Match Prediction:

Costa Caribe should feel more relaxed following the win in game-1, while it will be pressure-cooker situation for Leones as they have to win this game to force the game-3, or else, they will be out of the tournament. It's too close to call, but Caribe will be the favourites to win the game.
