Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney Wanderers Prediction & Match Preview

Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney Wanderers
Australia A-League
Date: Monday, 27 July 2020
Kick-Off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: Central Coast Stadium (Gosford)

The hosts are coming into this game after the rare draw against Newcastle Jets. This gave them their first point after 11 defeats on the trot. So they will be happy to play another consecutive home game on Monday. They can build from this draw if they wish to especially since their opposition is in bad shape as well.

Wanderers are 9th in the points table after 21 matches. With three games in hand, they are way above their upcoming opposition in the table. There is a 12 points difference between these two teams on paper but in terms of form, they are quite close. The visitors stole points from the top two teams Sydney FC and Melbourne City in their last two league games.

Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney Wanderers: Prediction

The head to head stats gives the visitors the upper hand in this upcoming tie. They are currently on a two-match winning streak against the Mariners. The visitors have won 63% of the matches they played at this ground too. The home side still needs to improve leaps and bounds to get out of the bottom of the table.

There was no shortage of goals whenever these two met in a competitive fixture. Both of them have netted goals in the majority of the head to head games at this ground. Currently, the hosts are leaking goals both at home and away. Even though they managed to keep a clean sheet in their latest draw I do not see them repeat it again in this one. Wanderers are also infamous for their defense which has already given away 30 goals while scoring three less. So I am backing both teams to score and the visitors to win.
