Western Sydney Wanderers FC vs Central Coast Mariners Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Western Sydney Wanderers were able to get a winning start in the 2017-18 A-league campaign after beating Perth Glory 2-1 at the Spotless stadium. Oriol Riera and Jumpei Kusukami scored just before half-time to provide the home team with a decisive advantage. Western Sydney were unable to get a clean sheet after conceding late through Brendan Hamill’s own goal. Central Coast Mariners suffered a late collapse to lose 5-1 against Newcastle Jets on the opening day. Despite taking the lead in the fifth minute through Asdrubal, Central Coast Mariners were unable to prevent the opposition from scoring through Roy O’Donovan (3), Joseph Champness, and Dmitri Petratos. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Western Sydney have been able to witness four wins in the last five games against Central Coast Mariners. Even though the recent home match against this team ended in a 2-0 loss, the start to the 2017-18 season suggest that this game may mark a return to normality. Western Sydney produced an impressive performance on the opening day while Central Coast Mariners were quite the opposite. I would back Western Sydney to get a win in this game. The attacking potential within Western Sydney was a surprising element with the team creating several good opportunities. Central Coast Mariners were very poor at the back in their opening game. Former Deportivo La Coruna forward Oriol Riera scored on his debut, and I would back the 31-year-old to find the back of the net in this game. Western

Sydney Wanderers win – 4/11

Oriol Riera to score anytime – 8/11

Western Sydney Wanderers FC Preview

Western Sydney Wanderers have made a huge step up in terms of the squad strength after bringing in the likes of Oriol Riera and Alvaro Cejudo. The former made a major impact by scoring on his debut, and the overall performance of the team was also relatively good. After having finished just outside the top five last season, Western Sydney will be looking to make the push for the trophy. It also is clear that the club have been able to make a push from last season’s set of results when the team went six games without a defeat. The lack of a clean sheet is the only disappointment of the first game, as Western Sydney did come in with an impressive defensive record last season.

Mark Bridge is the only injury concern for Western Sydney Wanderers interim manager Hayden Foxe coming into the game.

Central Coast Mariners Preview

A heavy opening day loss against Newcastle Jets is a significant blow to Central Coast Mariners’ confidence levels. The 2016-17 season saw the team finish just one point above the bottom of the table and the club struggled a lot when it came to defensive performances. The team conceded 52 goals – only behind Newcastle Jets – in the previous campaign. In such a situation, the heavy loss against Newcastle Jets does not bode well for the new season. Central Coast have brought in Wout Brama as the key acquisition of the off-season.
