DIR Vs EST Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Second and third go at loggerheads in the first semi-final of the Nicaragua league today
Having emulated each other’s campaign in the Liga Primera Clausura 2019-20, when today’s opponents face off against each other once again in the league today, we are going to be in for an edge of the seat thriller. The first of the double-header of the first semi-final between Diriangen and Real Esteli is going to make for an intoxicating brew, a tie which engages us in an enthralling outing.
Both these sides ended up next to each other in the league stages with both finishing on equal points at 35. However, with a superior gol difference, Real Esteli not only edged Diriangen to second place but also asserted themselves of direct qualification into the semi-finals, a position worthy of their clinical brand of football.
Elsewhere, Diriangen found themselves competing with Juventus for a spot in today’s encounter with the side triumphing 1-0 in its quarter-final to canter its way into the forthcoming outing. Given the fact that both these sides scored the akin number of goals as well at 29, we are going to be in for a ravishing encounter, a clash truly worthy of the stature accorded on it.
When these two had last met each other on the field, we had been revelled in a 0-0 draw with nothing managing to separate two levelly balanced sides. And the same kind of resilliance and resolve will be on show today as well with this being a jaffer of a feisty tie.
What should see Esteli come out on top by the barest of margins is their well rounded backline, one which should see them team carry a slender advantage back home.

DIR Vs EST Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Henry Maradiaga from Real Esteli will be throwing open the doors of our Dream 11 team for today’s forthcoming encounter. The goal-keeper is held in extremely high stature, someone who has covered himself in glory with displays to write home about on a persistent basis.
DIR Vs EST Dream11 Defenders
And a reason why Henry has been allowed to express himself freely is due to the free hand he’s been accorded by his defenders. The most sublime backline in the league with a mere 11 goals let in past them all season long, it was only befitting to rope in a magnitude of defenders from Real Esteli for the upcoming tie.
We’ll be moving in for a trio from the contingent, one which comprises of Jason Casco, Josue Quijano and Manuel Rosas while from the home side we have Erick Tellez representing our team.
DIR Vs EST Dream11 Midfielders
Leading the goal scoring ranks for the home side with the four goals to his name sees us make Zuniga from the side the first name to grace this component of our team. He’s going to be assisted by Richard Rodriguez, two players capable of traversing their way past Estelí’s defence and piling on crucial goals for the side today.
Elsewhere, the one name makes its way from Esteli over here with us opting for Abler Acuna giving the electric touch the player has been in off late.
DIR Vs EST Dream11 Strikers
Scoring two goals against Real Madriz in the foregone week will see us move in for the services of the myriad and guile filled Alvaro Hernandez from Diriangen. On the other hand we are opting for a lethal and formidable duo from the visiting unit, one which comprises of Ayerdis and Luis Acuna, two players who have both popped up with the five goals for the team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With the five goals apiece, Ayerdis will captain our side while Acuna is the vice-captain.
