Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Sydney come into the game after destroying Perth Glory 6-0 in the latest A-league outing. Brandon O’Neill’s goal was the only difference between the two teams at the break, but a sensational second-half performance saw Sydney score 5 – through Adrian Mierzejewski, Alex Brosque, and Bobo (hat-trick). Newcastle Jets suffered a major setback in the title hopes after a 2-1 loss against Melbourne Victory. Costa Barbarouses opened the scoring in the 33rd minute before Justin Hoffman came up with the equaliser for Newcastle at the stroke of half-time. Besart Berisha scored in the 53rd minute to end Newcastle’s three-game winning run. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sydney are in an outstanding goalscoring mood, while Newcastle have been quite poor at the back with just one clean sheet in eight. In fact, Newcastle have kept just two clean sheets this season and the club has been conceding at more than a goal per game. Sydney come into the game after having scored a whopping 22 goals in the last four league outings. I would back Sydney to continue this form – especially with Bobo in excellent form – and score more than 2.5 goals. Alex Brosque has been in goalscoring form with three goals in his last four games. The 34-year-old has excelled in recent games against Newcastle Jets by failing to score just twice in the last seven appearances. I would back Brosque to score anytime in the game. Sydney to score over 2.5 goals – 7/4 Alex Brosque to score anytime – 15/8

Sydney FC Preview

Sydney continue to make up incredible strides in the A-League 2017-18 campaign. After having won matches in a cautious manner last season, Sydney have been blitzing past opponents in recent weeks. The incredible goalscoring performances of Sydney have made the team as the top scorers in the current campaign – overtaking Newcastle in the process. Sydney now have 33 goals in 13 matches. The club are on course to hit in last season’s tally of 55 goals with several matches to spare. Bobo is the top scorer at the club with 13 goals and he has contributed 39% of Sydney’s goals this season. Last season, the player had a 27% contribution to Sydney’s goals.

Sydney FC Team News

Manager Graham Arnold will have a fully fit squad at his disposal.

Newcastle Jets Preview

Newcastle are showing signs of fatigue while competing with Sydney for the A-League title, as the team has now dropped eight points behind the defending champions. Newcastle are still a comfortable seven points ahead of Melbourne Victory, but losing too many games will put Newcastle in a tough position for the same. Earlier in the campaign, Newcastle were overpowering opponents with plenty of goals. The injury to Roy O’Donovan, whose goals were crucial in the first few weeks, has hit the club quite hard. Newcastle have managed only one clean sheet in the last eight league outings, and this poor defensive record has let down Newcastle on several occasions.

Newcastle Jets Team News

Ronald Vargas (malleolar) and Roy O’Donovan (groin) are the players unavailable for Newcastle Jets.
