Central Coast Mariners vs Sydney FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Central Coast Mariners still remain winless in the A-League 2017-18 campaign after only picking up a goalless draw with Brisbane Roar during the weekend. Both teams had a decent set of chances to get the winner, but lack of clinical finishing meant that Paul Okon’s team have to wait more for the first win. Sydney went top of the table after a 1-0 win over Melbourne City. A 59th minute goal from Luke Wilkshire provided a comfortable victory for Sydney FC.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sydney have dropped only two points this season, while they are up against a Central Coast Mariners outfit that are winless so far. Sydney have won five out of the recent six games against this opponent. I would bet on Sydney to win the game. The two away matches for Sydney have finished with a 1-0 score. Even though just one of the recent five matches between Sydney and Central Coast Mariners have witnessed a low scoring game, this match has the potential to join the ranks. After conceding four goals in the first three matches, Sydney have kept back-to-back clean sheets. Central Coast Mariners have scored under 1.5 goals in the last three league matches. I would bet on under 2.5 goals in the game.

Central Coast Mariners Preview

After starting the fashion in an extremely disappointing 5-1 home defeat against Newcastle Jets, Central Coast Mariners will be delighted at the revival in form that the club has experienced over the last few matches. The game against Brisbane produced the first clean sheet of the season, and the club has suffered just one defeat in the last four league matches. This statistic is a huge positive considering that CCM have been on the road for three of these four matches. Now, the club prepare for a run of three home games in the next four. Asdrubal Padron is the top scorer with two goals.

There are no injuries or suspension worries for Central Coast Mariners.

Sydney FC Preview

Sydney FC are starting to establish a stranglehold in the division straightaway, as the team do not seem to be in a mood to relinquish the title that they won last season. After having made a winning start to the season, one of the few troubling issues for the club would be the number of goals conceded in the first couple of matches. Yet, back-to-back clean sheets mark a return to defensive form for the club that had the best defensive record in the 2016-17 season. After having won both of away games by a 1-0 score, Sydney FC may be looking for more flamboyant results and bigger scores in the coming matches. The game against Central Coast Mariners is the first of the two away matches for Graham Arnold’s team. Bobo is the leading scorer at the club with four goals in five.
