RIV vs MAT Dream11 Match Prediction

RIV vs MAT Dream11: Rivas Basketball Club will have their task cut out when they host an in-form Matagalpa Basketball in the 2020 regular season of Nicaragua Basketball League on early Sunday morning (IST). Rivas have struggled to match the expectations so far, and are sitting away from the playoff spots, 16th to be precise ahead of this game, winning only six times out of 18. But three of those six wins came only in the last five games, which shows that they are in the best form of the current campaign and should fancy their chances in this game.
But that won't be easy, for the opponent are Matagalpa, who are the sixth-best team in the league ahead of this game with 15 wins and two defeats from 17 games.

Rivas team news:
Status out: None. The hosts are likely to go into the game with a full set of players available for selection, but changes can still be made on the active roster.
Status Questionable: None.
Note: Players like Oscar Matamoro Sequeira, Luis Ibarra Urbina, and Alvardo Paramo are likey to be on the court for the host.

Rivas Key Players:

  • Luis Ibarra Urbina: He is perhaps the most dangerous player in this team due to his unique gameplay, which affects the game on both ends of the court.
  • Alvardo Paramo: He is also a key player for Rivas as far as offence is concerned and can pop up with something special. He is worth taking a risk in Grand League teams.
  • Rivas also have some good players in the shape of Oscar Matamoro Sequeira, Luis Talavera Palacio and Lenin Ruiz Mendoza.

Matagalpa team news:
Status out: None.
Status Questionable: Rudy Taylor was held out of the last game due to rest purposes and he may be available for this match.
Byron Castillo and Darwin Almendarez Rocha both were absent from matchday roster in the last game and the duo is likely to be monitored ahead of the game.
Note: Players like Carlos Matamoros Lorio and Francisco Baltodano may not be a safe option to have on the team.

Matagalpa active roster: Franklin Zeledon Marin, Kevin Andino, Bryan Parajon, Byron Castillo, Raul Mendoza, Jose Calero, Francisco Baltodano, Elgin Mejia, Rudy Taylor, Dayton Cacho, Darwin Almendarez Rocha, Carlos, Gerson Zeledon, Harold Miranda

Matagalpa Key Players:

  • Kevin Andino: He was an absolute monster in the last match, as he had an all-round game, affecting the game-play on both ends.
  • Dayton Cacho: He was too hot to handle in the last match and can't be overlooked.
  • Raul Mendoza: Clocked more than 50 points in the last game in Dream11.
  • Rudy Taylor: If he plays, he is worth taking a risk, for he can be deadly on both ends.
  • Gerson Zeledon: He will be the first centre if Rudy fails to make the cut, and can't be ignored.
  • Elgin Mejia and Franklin Zeledon Marin: On current form, the duo is perhaps the players who offer the best value.
