Ocotal – statistics & current form
The Club Deportivo Ocotal was only founded in 2002. The first promotion to the Liga Primera Clausura was successful in the 2006/07 season. After nine years in the first division, the club had to relegate to the second Nicaraguan league in the 2015/16 season. But just a year later, the “Guerreros de las Segovias” made it straight back to the top as second division champions.
Since returning to the first division, the CD has only reached a playoff final once. In Clausura 2019, however, the club from Ocotal was in the first round at the end. In Apertura 2019, things weren’t going very well for Deportivo either. With 21 points from 18 games, the blue-whites only came in third last place. After ten game days of the current Clausura, the club is again on the same place.

In the recent nine home games, on the other hand, there was only one defeat.
Since October 2019, the club has been managed by former national player Reynaldo Clavasquin.
