Sydney FC 11/8 to beat Central Coast Mariners and over 3.5 goals in Sunday’s A-League clash
Market: Sydney FC win and over 3.5 goals
Odds: 11/8 @ Bet 365
Looking to close the gap on the AFC Champions League positions, Sydney FC will welcome a struggling Central Coast Mariners to Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Sunday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while Sydney might have struggled with their consistency in the second half of the season, Sydney should see Sunday as the perfect opportunity to close the gap on the top two. In their 18 A-League matches this season, they have won 11, drawn two and lost five, scoring 32 and conceding 21 in return. With a points tally of 35, another win on the weekend could see them climb within a point of rivals Melbourne Victory. Putting five past Central Coast the last time, Sydney have also won their last five matches at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.
As for the visitors, still enduring a very worrying run of form in the second half of the season, Central Coast still find themselves sat rock-bottom of the A-League. In their 18 games this season, they have picked up just one win, three draws and have registered 18 defeats. Scoring just 18 and conceding 42 in return, they also now hold both the worst attacking and defensive record in the division. As for their recent form, the Mariners have now lost their last four matches on the bounce, conceding two or more in each defeat.
