Match Preview & Team News

Central Coast Mariners endured one of the worst campaigns in the A-League history last time around when they finished at the very foot of the standings with just 13 points from 27 games. They did not play defence at all conceding as many as 70 goals in the process.

The Mariners responded to such a dreadful season by changing the back line entirely in the summer. They signed a former Premier League goalkeeper Mark Birighitti who did well in helping the new team to reach the FFA Cup semi-final. Central Coast Mariners were stopped there by Adelaide United, yet showing a decent overall performance in a narrow 1-2 defeat last Wednesday.

The team led by Alen Stajcic will thus hope to be more competitive in the new 2019/20 A-League campaign. They will begin it on Saturday with the away fixture against Western Sydney Wanderers. The hosts also went through a disappointing campaign in the previous term of the competition. They decided to give Markus Babbel a new opportunity on the bench even though the German manager made a dreadful debut in the top flight of Australian football.

Babbel has also put a huge focus on improving his team’s defensive line in between two seasons. However, the improvements were not visible in the 3-0 loss to Melbourne City in the recent FFA Cup quarter-final.

Low-scoring affairs are not quite common for Australian football, but we could expect one here given that both teams kept the main focus on repairing their defensive holes in between two campaigns.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Western Sydney Wanderers are 13/20 favourites to win this, but we notice a better value in backing the draw at the massive 3/1 odds.

Goals Market Prediction

Just one of the last three head to head meetings between the two teams saw three or more goals scored. We will alternatively go for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 6/4 odds.
