JU vs CC Dream11: Following an away win, Juigalpa return to their base for the matchup against an in-form Costa Caribe in the regular season of Nicaragua Basketball League on Sunday night (IST).
Juigalpa registered a morale-boosting 59-84 win over Carazo Basketball Club in the last match, snapping their two-game losing run in the process. Considering the season is running deep in the regular season, defeats can make the task a tad harder for the teams chasing the playoffs, and Juigalpa know they are just about managing to hang on the fringes at the moment, but another negative run will push them further away from playoff reckoning. They need to out-win their opponent and must also win these kinds of games against a more formidable opponent. As things stand, Juigalpa are 8th on the points table.
Costa Caribe, on the other hand, are the second-best team in the league. They are on a two-game winning run, last winning 63-94 against Leon Basketball Club.
Teams: Juigalpa and Costa Caribe
