LEO vs LM Dream11 Match Prediction

LEO vs LM Dream11: Leon Basketball Club will be playing host to Leones de Managua in the 2020 regular season of Nicaragua Basketball League on early Thursday morning (IST). Leon are one of the teams looking to barge into the playoff spots, but their form is a major concern and is pulling their aspirations down. With a negative return on the season 8 wins and nine defeats, they are reeling in the bottom half of the table, and arrive in this match on the back of a 128-61 defeat. That margin and total surrender will take some efforts to recover, but the time is not on their side and each negative result is taking them further away from playoff spots. They are 11th on the power ranking heading into this match.

If the host suffered a huge defeat in the last game, then Leones de Managua were the team who rolled out some beating to their opponent in the last match as they won 57-117 against Naindaime, and that too on the road. That win was a reminder this team is one of the challenges for the ultimate prize. And their current form and position also points in the direction of the title as they sit fifth with a 14-5 record, and arrive in this match with 8 wins from last 10 game.

LEO vs LM Dream11 Who Will Win Today’s Match!

Both in terms of form and profile of these teams, this looks a matchup. But the games are not played on paper and Leon will at least count their chances as host. They have had some good results against a few top teams, so there is certainly a fight within this group.
That said, Leones de Managua are not an ordinary team on current form. The last game was a good hint of what they can do on the court. A win for the visitors is the most likely outcome in this match.
