The Newcastle Jets somewhat brightened up the overall impression of the team's performance with their results in the last two rounds, but the situation has not changed fundamentally, as Craig Deans' charges deservedly occupy the last place in the table.
The reason for this state of affairs is a series of four defeats at the start of the season. The "Pilots" lost first to the "Central Coast Mariners" (0:1), and then with the same score to "Sydney Wanderers", "MacArthur" and "Brisbane Roar" (all - 1:2). The black streak was cut after the victory over "Wellington Felix" (2:1). In the last round, "Newcastle" managed to save themselves from defeat on the road with the same "Sydney Wanderers" (1:1), restoring equality in the very ending.
Upcoming Predictions for Football
"Melbourne City" is clearly far from optimal conditions, which does not allow the silver medalist of last season to be located above the eighth position, having only six points in his asset. The team of Patrick Kisnorbo was especially weak in the last two matches, where three goals were conceded in each. The attack could not compensate for the flaws in the defence: "Perth Glory" (1:3) took three points without any problems, and the "Central Coast Mariners" played a two-goal handicap, levelled the score, and then took advantage of the numerical advantage and brought the matter to victory - 3:2.
Let us remind you that earlier "Melbourne" achieved victories over "Western United" (2:1) and "Brisbane Roar" (1:0), and the defeat from "Adelaide United" (0:2) fits between them.
"Melbourne" is coming very angry after Wednesday's fiasco. The hosts are inferior in class, and besides, in defence, they do not look like a stronghold of reliability (although this also applies to the favourite). However, the "townspeople" cannot afford to lose for the third time in a row, otherwise, they will then have to catch up with the group of leaders.
Our prediction is that Melbourne City will win with a handicap (-1.5) with a coefficient of 4.54 on 1xbet.
