Adelaide United vs Central Coast Mariners Prediction
Adelaide were defeated on the road 2-1 by Brisbane Roar in the last match-day. The loss put a halt to the three-game winning run of the former. Considering they are next taking on one of the worst teams in the competition, Adelaide fans will surely demand a huge win.
The Mariners had lost on the road in the meantime, against Newcastle Jets. The scoreline was 4-3, and it was the fourth loss in a row for Central Coast. The defeat once again highlighted how the team was struggling in the A-League.
The team had lost nine of their last twelve overall fixtures, and are on a losing run of six match-ups on the road. In fact, they have a single league win away from home this season, and have not kept one clean sheet in the process.
On the other hand, Adelaide had won 3 of their former 4 games, and 13 of the last 16 at this venue. Moreover, they had won 9 of the past 11 h2h meetings, and scored twice or more in 8 of the past 11 such games. They had also recorded 9 of the former 10 h2h wins at this venue, while scoring twice or more in 9 of the previous 11 such fixtures.
Considering these pointers, it’s more than evident that with the home advantage, Adelaide would be simply too much to handle for the Mariners. As such, it’s logical to back Adelaide United for a convincing win this weekend.
