2019/20 A-League Round 17 Preview

Sydney FC vs Brisbane Roar – Jubilee Stadium

Sydney FC ($1.53)

Brisbane Roar ($6.55)

Draw ($4.5)

Sydney FC’s procession to the title continues as the host Brisbane Roar on Friday evening. The blues sit 10 points clear of the chasing pack at the top of the league and have a game in hand on Melbourne City. They have only suffered defeat once this season and look to have the bit between their teeth currently as they pursue yet another league title. Meanwhile, Robbie Fowler’s Brisbane Roar have climbed up to 7th in the A-League table and the manner of their back to back wins over Wellington Phoenix and Central Coast Mariners is sure to give them confidence. They are unbeaten in their last 5 matches but they won’t be targeting games such as this in their play-off push. Brisbane will make life difficult for Sydney but they have too much experience at this level and should pick up a comfortable 3 points.

Sydney FC to win 3-1

Newcastle Jets vs Western United – McDonald Jones Stadium

Newcastle Jets ($2.3)

Western United ($3.4)

Draw ($3.55)

Western United travel to lowly Newcastle Jets in what is shaping up to be a must-win game for both sides. Newcastle Jets sit bottom of the table with 14 games played and their recent form both home and away has been a real concern. They have lost their last 4 games in the division and confidence looks at an all-time low at the McDonald Jones Stadium. Western United have taken well to life in the A-League and find themselves in 6th place in the table, very much in the play-off picture. They continue to concede goals at an alarming rate however and their 4-3 loss to Adelaide last time out was testament to that. Western United should have too much about them here for Newcastle Jets however and look great value to win the match.

Western United to win 2-1

Adelaide United vs Melbourne City – Hindmarsh Stadium

Adelaide United ($2.6)

Melbourne City ($2.8)

Draw ($3.68)

Two sides hoping to cement their places in the top 6 face-off as Adelaide United host Melbourne City. Adelaide will be looking to also build on their wins over Melbourne Victory and Western United which have seen them climb up to 5th place in the table and they continue to have designs of finishing in the play-off places come the end of the season. Melbourne City meanwhile 2nd following an edgy draw with Perth Glory last time out – a game in which they dominated for large parts. They have however only won 2 of their last 5 games and need to increase their consistency if they are to have any chance of catching Sydney FC above them. This looks to be a very tight game on paper and the points could well be shared in Adelaide.

1-1 Draw

Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory – HBF Park

Perth Glory ($1.72)

Melbourne Victory ($5)

Draw ($4.2)

Perth Glory host Melbourne Victory in what promises to be a real battle between two sides in very different form. Defending league shield winners Perth Glory dug deep to pick up a point at Melbourne City last time out and they had won 5 games on the spin prior to that. They sit 3rd in the table and look to be coming into form at the right time with play-off places up for grabs. Melbourne Victory meanwhile find themselves floundering in 8th place in the A-League table following their ill-tempered defeat to Sydney FC last time out. Results have been inconsistent all season and they will be eager to start picking up points if they are to finish in the top 6 come the end of the campaign. This should be a comfortable home win for Perth Glory against a Melbourne Victory side very low on confidence.

Perth Glory to win 3-0

Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney Wanderers – Central Coast Stadium

Central Coast Mariners ($3.05)

WSW ($2.5)

Draw ($3.6)

Two sides looking to climb the table face off at Central Coast Stadium as the Mariners take on WSW. Central Coast Mariners sit 10th in the table with 3 wins in their last 9 games and consistency looks to be the key issue for them as they look to avoid the wooden spoon this season. They suffered a tough loss at home to Brisbane Roar last time out and they will be keen to bounce back at home as quickly as possible here. Meanwhile, WSW took a week off last weekend and will be looking to return refreshed. They sit in 9th, only one point and one place above Central Coast and they will be keen to put some distance between themselves and the bottom two here. This should be a tight game and it could well end up honours even at the Central Coast Stadium.
