Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory Prediction
Central Coast Mariners have marked their fourth loss in the last five league fixtures after the 2-1 defeat on the road against Wellington Phoenix in their prior match.
Besides that, the Mariners have been struggling to find a win this league season. Evidently, the host has recorded only three wins from their 11 league appearances so far.
Along with that, Central Coast Mariners have won only two of their five home matches in their schedule. Also, their previous home match also ended in a loss.
Standing strong with a five-point lead over the Mariners, Melbourne Victory had their previous clash with Newcastle Jets at home end in a 4-0 win. Apart from that, the Victory has lost only one of their recent five league encounters.
Even though Melbourne Victory lost three of their five away games, the visitor will be confident with their win from the prior away trip.
As such, the Mariners will not be having much home ground advantage to put into use in the match. Hence, Melbourne Victory has more chance of winning the game. Also, we can expect both teams to slot in at least a goal each in ninety minutes.
