Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory
Australia A-League
Date: Wednesday, 9 March 2022
Kick-off at 06:05 UK/ 07:05 CET
Venue: Central Coast Stadium.

Both these teams have struggled all through this season in keeping clean sheets. And things are just getting tougher as the campaign progress.

The Mariners are placed tenth in the table as of now, and if their trend of dropping points goes on, fans can expect their team to go further down in the standings.

Especially at home the squad has found it hard to make any kind of an impact lately.

Meanwhile, Melbourne have found it hard to show consistency throughout 2021-22. Even if they register some wins in row, then they would go on a winless run, and throw away all the momentum.

By the looks of things, anticipate goals to come from either end of the pitch this Wednesday.
