Central Coast Mariners vs Adelaide United Prediction
A clean sheet loss against Sydney FC in the previous league encounter marked the fifth loss for Central Coast Mariners in the competition after eight fixtures.
The host had only one win in their last five matches in the campaign and that was against Western United. Apart from that they are on a two-game losing run.
Meanwhile, at home, the Mariners have played three clashes. They drew the first match to the Jets and then lost to the current opponents at home. And their previous home match ended in a 1-0 win against Western United.
As such, the home team has slowly improved their form at their own turf. But since they are lacking the overall form and are at the ultimate bottom of the table, they cannot be completely trusted to win.
On the other hand, Adelaide United has four wins in their last five league encounters. Their previous encounter at home against the Jets gave them another three points to stay at the fourth spot in the table.
Besides that, United has been winning the last two away games after their lone opening defeat on the road against Melbourne City.
Hence, we can see that the visitor might have more control over the results of the game. Henceforth, we can count on Adelaide United to win the game.
