Nicaragua vs Barbados betting tips: CONCACAF Nations League preview, predictions and odds


Nicaragua vs Barbados match preview

Nicaragua are strong favourites to gain promotion to League A, and showed exactly why in their group opener.

On Friday night, quick-fire goals from Matías Moldskred Belli and Óscar Acevedo saw la Azul y Blanco beat Dominican Republic 2-0 at Estadio Olímpico Félix Sánchez.

Marco Antonio Figueroa’s team did actually top their League B group last time round, but were denied promotion because, having fielded an ineligible player, they were disqualified.

So, probably too strong for the second-tier of the Nations League, los Pinoleros are confident of picking up three points again here.

Barbados meantime are the rank-outsiders in Group B, having only been spared relegation following a format change back in March.

The Bajan Tridents though did give Montserrat a run for their money on Friday, with Elijah Downey and Thierry Gale on target in The Valley, only for the visitors to snatch a 3-2 victory in the 98th minute.
