Our prediction for this A League match:
Melbourne Victory will be looking to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Brisbane Roar when they take on Central Coast Mariners at Jubilee Oval. The Boys in Blue continue to struggle in A-League, with the team extending their losing run to four matches, and, no doubt, they are low on confidence ahead of Monday’s football game. Central Coast Mariners, on the other hand, shared the spoils with both Newcastle Jets and WS Wanderers in the previous two league fixtures.
The visitors aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and seeing that midfielder Jacob Melling has overcome his injury, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Alen Stajcic’s troops. In their last meeting in the Australian top flight Central Coast Mariners outplayed Melbourne Victory 3-2, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
