RIV vs MAT Dream11 Match Prediction

RIV vs MAT Dream11: Matagalpa Basketball Club hit the road for an away game at Rivas Basketball as they look to record a hat-trick of wins in the Nicaragua Basketball League on early Sunday morning (IST). The visitors last won 128-61 against Leon, which can easily be termed as one of the best performances by any team in this league this season. They are definitely a team on the up and can go 5th with a win in this game.
Rivas won’t be an easy meal by the way. And the reason is that Rivas have doubled their season’s wins in the last five matches, as they won three times, and now have six wins from 18 games. That return may look meagre, but on current form, they will fancy their chances.


Match details:
Teams: Rivas and Matagalpa
Venue: Nicaragua
Match Timing: May 17, @ 04:30 AM


Rivas vs Matagalpa team news:

Rivas: The hosts are likely to go into the match with a full roster with no player expected to miss the game either with injuries or suspension. That said, the changes are likely to happen with the head coach selecting players based on his tactics. But players such as Luis Ibarra Urbina, Alvardo Paramo, and Oscar Matamoro Sequeira are likely to clock a good amount of minutes on the court.

Matagalpa: As for the visitors, Rudy Taylor is a serious doubt having sat out the last game due to a knock. His status remains questionable. Also, Byron Castillo and Darwin Almendarez Rocha both were held out of the last match due to undisclosed reasons and the duo is also doubtful to play this match.
In addition, players such as Carlos Matamoros Lorio and Francisco Baltodano may not be a safe option to have on the team.

  • His teammate Raul Mendoza was also in top form in the last match, and can’t be ignored on current form.
  • Dayton Cacho will be fighting for the top-player award in this game. He was too hot to handle in the last game.

  • Rivas will be led by Luis Ibarra Urbina inside the paint. He is the tallest player in the team and can be at his best on both ends of the court.
  • Alvardo Paramo is one of the best offensive players on Rivas’ roster and he can be considered as captain in at least one Grand League team.
  • Rudy Taylor can also be a good option if he is fit to play this game, but Gerson Zeledon is also an option if Rudy is not there. In fact, he may be a better value of the two considering the form he is in at the moment.
  • Elgin Mejia and Franklin Zeledon Marin are also in good form and offer the best value.
  • Players like Oscar Matamoro Sequeira, Luis Talavera Palacio and Lenin Ruiz Mendoza are also good options to consider.

RIV vs MAT Dream11 Who Will Win Today’s Match!

Indeed, Rivas are in good form and have doubled their winning in a space of five games. Thay return should give the team a huge lift ahead of this game. But the motivation can be a big factor and Matagalpa certainly have more as they aim for the top spots in the league. The visitors are also in better form and that’s why backing them looks a good call.
