Central Coast Mariners vs Perth Glory Prediction
Central Coast Mariners came out on top for the first time in three games after they posted a 2-1 victory over Adelaide United last week. Despite taking far fewer shots at goal in that latter clash, the hosts were a lot more clinical than their counterparts, and subsequently secured a much-deserved win at the end of the ninety minutes.
At the moment, the home team are sitting ninth in a cluster of eleven, five points behind Perth Glory, albeit with a game in hand.
Meanwhile, the visitors will be making the trip to Central Coast Stadium on the back of a stellar three-match winning streak. Their previous clash at home saw them run riot over Newcastle Jets with a thumping 6-2 scorecard. While on the road, they breezed past Melbourne City with three unanswered goals to their name.
It is also worth mentioning that Perth Glory have stumbled just once in their last five outings, and have garnered eight points from a possible fifteen. To matters worse for the Central Coast Mariners faithful, the hosts have been admitting back to back defeats in their past two matchups with this foe here.
Hence, although the visitors were at the losing end in the reverse fixture of this clash last month, pulling off a similar result just does not seem likely, especially given the positive run of form that the visiting contingent are on as of now.
Furthermore, Perth Glory have made their presence felt in the final third even on the road. They have found the back of the net seven times in their past two visits here. That too, whilst conceding just once.
Moreover, seven of the eighteen goals for them this term have come from their clashes away from home. To top it off, half of the last four fixtures at Central Coast Stadium have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.
As such, a high scoring affair is certainly looming large in this one.
