Market: Central Coast Mariners win
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Looking to move within touching distance of the AFC Champions League spots on Tuesday morning, Central Coast will host local rivals Newcastle Jets.
Starting with the hosts, while Central Coast might have struggled with their consistency at the back end of the campaign, they will be boosted by their display last week. Coming from a goal down to grab a deserved 2-1 victory against Macarthur, Alen Stajcic’s side have proven that their close-fought 1-0 loss against runaway leaders Melbourne City was just a minor blip. Rightfully smelling a golden chance when The Jets come to town on Tuesday morning, Central Coast know that victory will move them within touching distance of the top-two. Showing a string of improvements this season, there is no doubt that The Mariners should also be boosted by their rampant record against the midweek guests. Landing that 1-0 win when the two sides faced off on May 15th, Stajcic’s men have secured back-to-back victories against Newcastle.
As for the visitors, while Central Coast might be enjoying a standout campaign this year, the same cannot be said for a Newcastle side who find themselves in the midst of an A-League nightmare. Enduring a disastrous campaign at the McDonald Jones Stadium, Craig Deans’ side are still sat rock-bottom of the table and desperate to simply end the 2021 season. Last seen getting hit with a deserved 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brisbane Roar, Tuesday’s guests have remarkably failed to win any of their last 14 straight A-League contests, a run that stems all the way back to February 21st. Facing a tough test when they travel to their local rivals in midweek and suffering that 1-0 loss when they faced off against Central Coast a fortnight ago, we’re backing a similar outcome this week.
