Both the teams won their last match, but the visitors are certainly in a better moment having won the last four successive games. That said, out of those four wins, only one team have a better record than Juigalpa, and so their form against big teams can be questioned. Also, beating Real Esteli at their own home is one of the biggest tasks for all the team in the league. We are backing a home win in this Dream11 Fantasy Basketball Prediction.
