Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Central Coast Mariners’ poor form continued with the team losing 2-1 against Perth Glory during the weekend. Even though Paul Okon saw his team get a 14th minute lead through Wout Brama, they were unable to get anything out of the game after conceding twice in the last 20 minutes. Andrew Keogh and Adam Taggart came up with the goals to get Perth Glory a victory. Melbourne Victory picked up the first point of the season after being involved in a 2-2 draw with Adelaide United. Besart Berisha’s opening goal in the 13th minute was cancelled out by Vince Lia’s brace, but Victory managed to salvage a point due to Mitchell Austin’s late equaliser. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The recent game between the two clubs have been dominated by Melbourne Victory, who come on the back of just one point from the first three matches. However, they are up against a Central Coast Mariners outfit that has lost a lead in three consecutive matches at the start of the campaign. Victory may be better placed to exploit this weakness, as last season’s top scorer Besart Berisha is now back among the goals. I would back Melbourne Victory to win the game. Besart Berisha came up with his first goal of the season in the 2-2 draw with Adelaide United. The 32-year-old was one of the best players in the A-league 2016-17 campaign after coming up with 21 goals in 28 games. I would go with Besart Berisha to score anytime in the game.

Melbourne Victory win – 1/1
Besart Berisha to score anytime – 5/6

Central Coast Mariners Preview

The difficult start to the season for Central Coast Mariners has only become worse after the loss against Perth Glory, as the team once again let slip a winning position. Central Coast Mariners have now taken the lead in the first three matches of the season and they have been able to manage only one point from the possible nine. Last season, the club had the worst home record after managing only 13 points at home and the team started the home campaign with a hefty 5-1 loss against Newcastle Jets. Asdrubal Padron is the leading scorer for Central Coast Mariners with two goals in three matches.

Central Coast Mariners boss Paul Okon has a fully fit squad available at his disposal.

Melbourne Victory Preview

Melbourne Victory come into the game after having managed just one point from the first three matches of the season. This poor start to the season is a surprise considering that the team reached the play-off finals last season. They were beaten by Sydney in this game, but Victory were expected to kick on and win the title this year. Yet, the draw with Adelaide United provided the first points of the season after the team started out with back-to-back losses. Surprisingly, both these losses have been at home where Victory managed 10 wins in 14.

Melbourne Victory manager Kevin Muscat does not have injury worries to deal with ahead of the game.
