Market: Over three goals
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
Two sides who have struggled with their form at the back end of the season, Melbourne City will host a rock-bottom Central Coast Mariners in the final matchup of the A-League campaign.
Starting with the hosts, while Melbourne City may have managed to book their spot in the Finals Playoffs, the Sky Blues have struggled with their consistency at the back end of the season. In their 26 A-League matches this year, they have recorded 10 wins, seven draws and nine defeats, scoring 34 and conceding 32 in return. With a points tally of 37, Melbourne have all but mathematically secured a sixth-place finish heading into the final matchup. As for their recent run of form, however, Friday’s morning’s hosts have won just two of their last 11 outings and five of their last seven matchups have seen the final result end with three or more goals.
As for the visitors, enduring another woeful A-League campaign, Central Coast Mariners have confirmed another finish at the foot of the table. In their 26 matches this season, they have recorded just three victories, four draws and 19 defeats, scoring 31 and conceding 65 in return. Picking up just 13 points this year, Friday’s visitors sit five points adrift at the bottom of the table entering the final matchup. As for their recent run of results, Central Coast have lost three of their last four outings and have also lost 11 of their last 13 matches away from Central Coast Stadium, conceding two or more goals in each of those defeats.
