Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
In a matchup that could prove to be another high-scoring encounter as the A-League reaches the quarter-finals stage, the Central Coast Mariners will host Macarthur on Saturday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while the Central Coast Mariners might have managed to end their regular campaign with a victory, they did show a host of inconsistencies at the back end of the year. In their 26 A-League matchups throughout the 2021 season, they landed 12 wins, six draws and eight defeats, scoring 35 and conceding 31 in return. Eventually ending their run with a points tally of 42, The Mariners finished in third-spot and five points adrift of finding a shock route into the top-two. As for their previous run of results, Central Coast were last seen landing a 2-0 win against Western United on home soil, just their third victory in their last 11 A-League matchups. It should also be noted, Saturday’s hosts have managed to record just a single clean sheet in any of their last seven fixtures on home soil.
As for the visitors, signing off their regular campaign run with a dreadful showing, Macarthur are another side that are really seeking some stability in the Final Series. In their 26 A-League matchups throughout that 2021 season, they recorded 11 wins, six draws and nine defeats, scoring 33 and conceding 36 in return. Eventually ending their campaign with a points tally of 39, Macarthur ended the season with just a one-point buffer from dropping out of the top-six. As for their previous run of results, last seen getting hit with a drumming against Wellington Phoenix on home soil, Saturday’s guests have won just one of their previous four A-League matchups. However, it should be noted, with Macarthur seeing each of their last three away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
