The games are coming thick and fast in the A-League, with a whole host of sides in contention at both ends of the table. Melbourne Victory currently find themselves at the top of the table, with Macarthur FC and Western United very much in the running too. It has been a slower start to the campaign for Central Coast Mariners and Melbourne City, but they are two sides in the mix too, whilst Sydney FC can never be discarded. Brisbane Roar are currently bottom of the pile and winless from their opening games but there is plenty of time on their side to turn things around.
Here are our picks for the next round of fixtures in the A-League:
A-League Round 10 Tips
Central Coast Mariners vs Newcastle Jets – Central Coast Stadium
Central Coast Mariners ($2.3)
Newcastle Jets (3.6)
Central Coast Mariners will be looking to cash in on home advantage, as they take on a struggling Newcastle Jets side. The Mariners currently sit 4th and look to be a side going places this term but can’t seem to generate any momentum, with COVID still disrupting their schedule. Newcastle Jets meanwhile have only one win to their name this term and look to be a team potentially scrapping it out down at the bottom of the table again this term. This could be a tight game on the Central Coast, with the Mariners most likely to prevail.
Betting tip: Central Coast Mariners to win the match ($2.3) – Bet @ Sportsbet
Central Coast Mariners to win 2-1
Adelaide United vs Melbourne City – Hindmarsh Stadium
Adelaide United ($4.33)
Melbourne City ($1.83)
Champions Melbourne City will be looking to find form once more as they take on Adelaide United. United haven’t started the season in the best of form but are a side capable of beating anyone on their day. With just one win from their opening 7 games, United aren’t in the best of form but they will relish this test against City. The blues haven’t set the world alight either in their title defence, currently residing in 5th with just 9 points from their opening 6 games. They are a side packed with quality and goals however and they should have enough to edge out Adelaide United here.
Betting tip: Melbourne City to win the match ($1.83) – Bet @ Sportsbet
Melbourne City to win 2-1
Sydney FC vs Brisbane Roar – Jubilee Stadium
Sydney FC ($1.55)
Brisbane Roar ($7)
Bottom side Brisbane Roar will be looking for their first win of the season as they travel to Sydney FC. The hosts haven’t enjoyed the best 12 months in the A-League, but they are a side very capable of producing big performances. They take on a Brisbane Roar team that are winless this season and look to be staring down the barrel at a very tough campaign. Neither side has set the world alight this season, but common sense says Sydney FC should have way too much for Brisbane Roar here – particularly at home.
Betting tip: Sydney FC to win the match ($1.55) – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sydney FC to win 3-0
Perth Glory vs Wellington Phoenix – nib Stadium
Perth Glory ($2)
Wellington Phoenix ($3.5)
Two sides sitting in the bottom half of the table do battle as Perth Glory host Wellington Phoenix. Glory have endured a tough start to the season, decimated by COVID – they have only managed to play four fixtures this term and with only one win on the board, it has been a slow start this term. Similarly, Wellington Phoenix have just one victory in the wins column, and they will be hoping for a sharp turnaround in fortunes here. Goals could be the order of the day here, with Perth Glory most likely to edge out this one.
Betting tip: Perth Glory to win the match ($2) – Bet @ Sportsbet
Perth Glory to win 3-2
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne Victory – Bankstown Stadium
Melbourne Victory ($2.75)
Table topping Melbourne Victory will be looking to carry on their fine form as they take on WSW, in what promises to be an intriguing battle. Western Sydney Wanderers are the proverbial sleeping giant in the A-League, a side packed with quality that can’t seem to get the consistency needed to sustain a title charge. They are currently 8th in the table, with only one win this term. Melbourne Victory meanwhile have started the season in fine fettle, top of the table with 7 games played. This could be the game of the weekend, with spoils likely to be shared at Bankstown Stadium.
