Brisbane Roar vs Central Coast Mariners
Date: Friday, 13 March 2020
Kick-Off at 8.30 UK
Venue: Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
This week’s action in Australian A-League is starting on Friday early morning at Suncorp Stadium where Brisbane Roar welcome the worst placed team in the division, Central Coast Mariners.
Visitors are having a rough time this season, collecting only 13 points from 20 games and having an awful goal difference at the moment?
Can they avoid 9th consecutive defeat? Bookies don’t think so, offering 1.51 odds on home win bet.
Brisbane Roar have improved dramatically in comparison to a slow start in this campaign, so fans are expecting nothing less but a dominant performance and three points here.

Five out of the last seven h2h’s ended Under 2.5 goals FT.
Brisbane Roar vs Central Coast Mariners Prediction
Central Coast Mariners have lost 15 out of 20 games played this season, conceding ridiculously high number of goals so far (46, which averages to 2.30 per duel). Record for away games is looking horrible as well, featuring one victory and nine losses. Coach Alen Stajcic is obviously going to have a rough task to lift form and morale of his squad.
Brisbane Roar have finally started collecting points consistently in 2020. They were victorious in three out of the last five A-League matches, losing only to Melbourne City on the road. This squad is undefeated at Suncorp for five games in a row and we have no doubt they will celebrate another victory on Friday.
As for the secondary bet, Brisbane scored six goals in the last three games at this venue. Backing them to score in both halves against Mariners feels like a great choice.
