Analysis of Newcastle Jets

The home team faces Melbourne City, in a match for the 26 round, which had been delayed, after 5 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses in the league so far. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 28 conceded; against 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 10 home league matches Newcastle Jets has a record of 3 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 13 points out of 30 possible. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 1‑0 (4 out of 10 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 11 of their 21 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Newcastle Jets reaches this stage of the Australian championship outside the play-off qualifying spots, the result of a poorly achieved campaign in general terms, which keeps the team six points from the play-off zone. Despite the unconvincing course, the recent times have brought improvements to the Newcastle Jets team, especially since Carl Robinson joined the technical comand. After a very interesting series of six consecutive games without losing, Newcastle Jets was defeated, last Friday, in the visit to the Brisbane Roar ground, by 1-0. A game without great interest, where the team was unable to react to the goal conceded at the 16th minute. Even so, Robinson's team wasted an excellent opportunity, already in the discounts, to reach the tie.

Confirmed Lineup: L. Italiano, N. Boogaard, C. O'Toole, J. Koutroumbis, N. Topor-Stanley, J. Ledley, M. Millar, S. Ugarković, N. Fitzgerald, R. O'Donovan, D. Petratos.
Coach: C. Robinson.

Analysis of Melbourne City

The away team is currently in the 2nd position of the league, with 40 points won, after 12 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Western Sydney Wanderers, by (1‑1). In the last match, they won in an away match against Central Coast Mariners, by (2‑4). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 33 goals scored and 25 conceded; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 30 goals scored and 14 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches Melbourne City has a record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses, so they have won 16 points out of 30 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 9 of the last 11 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 22 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times but have turned the score around in 3.

Melbourne City comes to this stage of the championship in the second place in the qualification, seven points away from Sydney FC, although in condition, since the champions have three games less. The advantage for Wellington Phoenix is four points, but the fact that City have two more games does not give security in the fight for a place of direct access to the final series. After drawing at the reception to Western Sydney Wanderers (1-1), the team coached by Erick Mombaerts (who was absent from the bench, due to restrictions related to the pandemic that is plaguing the world at this time) went on to win the Central Coast home Mariners, last Friday, by 4-2. To the goal conceded after two minutes, the Melbourne team responded with two goals in the 5' and 10', by Jamie MacLaren and Susaeta, respectively. The highlight, until the end, was the hat-trick pointed out by MacLaren, who thus reached the top of the list of the best A-League scorers.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Glover, S. Jamieson, H. Delbridge, C. Metcalfe, L. Wales, Susaeta, N. Atkinson, J. Brillante, R. Griffiths, J. MacLaren, A. Luna.
Coach: E. Mombaerts.

Betting suggestion:

At a time when the decisions in the regular phase of the A-League begin to approach, this will be a game where victory will be the watchword for both teams, due to the situation they are currently experiencing. Behind closed doors, Newcastle Jets will seek to take advantage of Melbourne City's defensive instability, which in turn compensates for defensive deficiencies in attack. Therefore, we expect a very offensive game from side to side, with several goal occasions during the match. This betting suggestion has expired...
