Wellington Phoenix vs Central Coast Mariners Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Wellington Phoenix managed to pick up a first win of the season by beating Perth Glory 5-2 in their match, and they were not involved last week as the game against Western Sydney was postponed. Hence, Wellington were unable to quickly build on the win over Perth. The game witnessed goals from Dario Vidosic, Goran Paracki, Guilherme, and Andrija Kaluderovic (2). Central Coast Mariners lost 2-1 against Adelaide United to mark an end to their three-game unbeaten run. Wout Brama converted from the spot just before the break to provide a lead for Central Coast, but Adelaide produced a brilliant comeback through an outstanding long-range effort from Daniel Adlung and a late winner from Ryan Kitto. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Wellington Phoenix have come out on top in the recent three games against Central Coast Mariners. Home advantage is a major boost for Darije Kalezic’s team. After the poor performance against Adelaide, it is difficult to back Central Coast – especially in an away match. I would go with a victory for Wellington Phoenix. Kaludjerovic has been in excellent form with five goals in six games. He has failed to score only twice in his last five appearances. The 30-year-old is expected to have plenty of good opportunities against a Central Coast team that has conceded 12 goals in the first seven matches. This is likely to propel Wellington to a goal fest. There is excellent value in backing Wellington to score more than 1.5 goals.

Wellington Phoenix win – 19/20
Wellington to score over 1.5 goals – 4/6

Wellington Phoenix saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Central Coast Mariners saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Wellington Phoenix Preview

Wellington Phoenix may have conceded more than 1.5 goals in four out of the last five league matches, but the club were finally able to get the first victory out of the way. Ideally, Wellington would have liked to have played the game against Western Sydney and build on the win over Perth Glory. After having not played in almost 2 weeks of action, it remains to be seen if the club can come out of the blocks in the same spirited manner. Wellington have scored 11 goals – the most of any team in the bottom eight positions – but they have also conceded the second highest number of goals (13) so far this season. Andrija Kaludjerovic is the top scorer at Wellington with five goals in six games.

Wellington Phoenix Team News

Wellington Phoenix are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into the match.

Central Coast Mariners Preview

Central Coast Mariners will be hoping to avoid a slip to the bottom place of the A-league 2017-18 table. Even though the team recently picked up the first victory of the season, concerns about the defensive strength leaves them in a very difficult position. Central Coast Mariners have conceded 12 goals from the seven matches. They are amongst the four teams in the division on eight goals from the first seven matches. Asdrubal Padron has managed to come up with only two goals since coming in from Port FC in the summer. Wout Brama has also managed two goals so far.
