Melbourne Victory vs Newcastle Jets Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Melbourne Victory were able to get a crucial 1-0 victory over rivals Melbourne City in incredible circumstances. Despite being put under pressure in the second half, Victory came up with the winner when Mark Milligan converted from the spot deep in injury time. Newcastle Jets made it three consecutive wins after a 4-0 success over Western Sydney Wanderers. The game was in the balance at the break when Newcastle were leading due to Koutroumbis strike in the 10th minute. Second-half goals from Jason Hoffman, Ben Kantarovski, and Steven Ugarkovic were able to hand a comfortable win for the home team. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The reverse game witnessed Newcastle Jets managing a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Melbourne Victory. This turned out to be Newcastle’s first win over Victory since the home meeting in 2015. Even though Victory have dominated this fixture, this match could see Newcastle extend their good form. Victory are without a home in the season and they were quite fortunate to come away with a victory in the recent game against rivals Melbourne City. I would go with a victory for Newcastle Jets. Victory’s clean sheet against Melbourne City was their first in five matches and only the second of the campaign. Newcastle Jets have scored more than 1.5 goals in four out of the last five away games. I see tremendous value in backing the Jets to score over 1.5 goals.

Melbourne Victory Preview

Melbourne Victory are finally showing signs of form with the team managing three wins in the last four games. It is starting to help the club’s push for the top two places. A four-point advantage over Central Coast Mariners in the seventh place means that Kevin Muscat can now focus on catching the top two teams rather than having to worry about preserving a top-six place. The big positive for Victory may be a run of three consecutive away wins, but it is time that the team managed a victory at the AAMI Park. The team are without a home victory in five outings this season. Besart Berisha leads the scoring charts at the club with four goals in 10 games.

Melbourne Victory Team News

Manager Kevin Muscat will be without Mitch Austin (cruciate ligament) due to an injury.

Newcastle Jets Preview

Newcastle Jets have put behind the disappointment of a home defeat against Melbourne City in the best possible fashion – three consecutive league wins. It sees the club remain five points behind table in Sydney, while being able to open up a sizeable advantage over teams in the play-off places. Newcastle Jets now have a whopping seven-point advantage over City. The team has managed four wins in five away games, and it is an incredible record considering that Newcastle Jets only picked up five wins throughout the whole of the 2016-17 season. Despite his injury, Roy O’Donovan leads the scoring charts at the club with seven goals in as many games.

Newcastle Jets Team News

Newcastle Jets will be without Roy O’Donovan (groin) and Ronald Vargas (malleolar) due to injury.
