Competition: A-League

Market: Melbourne Victory win

Odds: 21/20 @ Bet 365

With the mood in their camp the highest it has been since opening the new campaign, Melbourne Victory will make the trip to the Central Coast Stadium on Sunday morning.

Starting with the hosts, while a 2-1 win over Adelaide last month may have had many around Gosford starting to believe that their side had turned a corner, the Mariners have since come crashing back down to earth. Hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Wellington last week, Central Coast have now lost back-to-back matchups, including a 3-0 hammering against Perth in their last appearance at the Central Coast Stadium. Also on a run of form that has seen them lose four of their last five A-League matchups, Head Coach Alen Stajcic will also be concerned by his side’s most recent meetings against Sunday’s guests. Hit with a 2-1 defeat when they faced off back in April, Melbourne have won each of their last four matches against Central Coast.

As for the visitors, while fans around AAMI Park may have been rightfully concerned by the Victory’s start to the new campaign, the Melbourne outfit put in a season-best display last weekend. Putting in a scintillating display and picking up a 4-0 victory over Newcastle, Head Coach Marco Kurz has seen his side land back-to-back victories and have tasted defeat just once since the 23rd of November. Undoubtedly still boosted by their eye-catching 2-1 win away at bitter rivals Melbourne City last month, Victory have a growing reputation for their lethal form in the final third. With the mood in their camp at a continued high, we’re backing Kurz’s men to carry on their stellar record at the Central Coast Stadium this weekend.
