Brisbane Roar FC vs Central Coast Mariners Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Brisbane Roar ended a string of consecutive losses following a brilliant 3-3 comeback draw against Wellington Phoenix. This A-League 2017-18 match saw Wellington race to a 3-0 lead inside the opening 20 minutes through goals from Roy Krishna and Andrija Kaluderovic (2). However, Massimo Maccarone and Avram Papadopoulos pulled two goals back before Maccarone equalised the scores with a late penalty. Central Coast Mariners were able to get a 1-1 draw with Melbourne Victory as the wait for a first win continues. Connor Pain provided the opening goal after 58 minutes, but Leroy George equalised for Victory with a brilliant free-kick. Pain and Appiah-Kubi hit the woodwork twice in the last 15 minutes of the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Brisbane Roar have had a strong run over Central Coast Mariners after picking up six consecutive wins. Yet, Brisbane come into the game on the back of a poor start to the season. Both teams, though, are winless in the opening few rounds of the 2017-18 season. Brisbane have home advantage and confidence from a rollercoaster 3-3 draw with Wellington Phoenix in the last match. I would go with a victory for Brisbane Roar. Central Coast Mariners have been decent in front of goal after managing to score five goals in the last three matches. Even though Central Coast have scored more than 1.5 goals only once in the last six away games against Brisbane, I see the home team going through a poor patch of defensive form after conceding almost 2 goals per game in the first four matches. I would bet on this game to see Central Coast scoring over 1.5 goals.

Brisbane Roar FC Preview

Brisbane Roar have managed just one point from the opening four matches of the season. This is a surprise start to the new season from Brisbane, who were able to finish third – only behind Sydney and Melbourne Victory – last season. Undoubtedly, the team are missing Jamie MacLaren who contributed 44% of the goals for Brisbane Roar last season. Yet, manager John Aloisi has seen his team score a decent number of goals in the last three matches. After having failed to score against Melbourne City in the opening game, Brisbane Roar have managed six goals in the three league matches.

Brisbane Roar FC Team News

Brisbane Roar are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into the match.

Central Coast Mariners Preview

Central Coast came in with a really good performance against Melbourne Victory in the recent match, and they could have taken a victory – for the first three points of the season – on any other day. The club are winless in the 2017-18 season after four games into the campaign. A major positive for Okon, despite the poor run, is the scoring touch shown by his team. Even though the Mariners conceded five goals in the first game of the season, they have since improved a lot with five goals conceded in the last three matches. At the other end, Central Coast have been able to score five goals in four matches.

Central Coast Mariners manager Paul Okon does not suffer from injuries or suspensions to his squad.
