Newcastle Jets 11/5 to beat Melbourne City in Friday’s A-League clash
Market: Newcastle Jets win
Odds: 11/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to carry on their impressive run of form, a resurgent Newcastle Jets side will welcome Melbourne City to McDonald Jones Stadium on Friday morning.
Starting with the hosts, picking up a victory in their AFC Champions League campaign earlier in the week, Newcastle Jets are enjoying quite an eye-catching run of form. In their 18 A-League matches this season, they have won five, drawn four and lost nine, scoring 21 and conceding 23 in return. Despite being sat eight points adrift of the top half of the table, they have begun to show real signs of improvements lately. Now losing just one of their last five matches across all competitions, the Jets are also unbeaten in their last four appearances at McDonald Jones Stadium.
As for the visitors, enduring a worrying run of form entering the second half of the season, Melbourne City have begun freefalling out of the title picture. In their 18 A-League matches this season, they have won eight, drawn four and lost six, scoring 22 and conceding 19 in return. Despite sitting fifth in the table, they’re 15 points adrift of top spot and hold the third worse attacking record in Australia’s top-tier. As for their recent run of form, the Blues have recorded just one win in their last six outings and have now lost their last three matches on the road.
