Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 2nd February 2019
Kick-off at 06.35 UK/ 07.35 CET
Venue: Central Coast Stadium (Gosford).
It’s the best offense against the weakest defense of the A-League. And, if not for the presence of Perth Glory, it would have been the best team against the worst.
The Yellow & Navy raises serious questions about truncating the number of teams that are allowed to play in the top division. Not in a single match have they raised a serious enough challenge for the other team. From their 16 ties in the league so far, all the team could manage was a win. But Big V would sure have loved that since the sole win came against their derby rivals.
Without contest, Kevin Muscat’s men have been one of the best sides on the road this season. They have scored the second-most number of goals away from home and conceded the least.

Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory Prediction
The Mariners are the only team in the league to have conceded more than twice the number of goals they scored. Also, they have been holding on to the tag of the team to have let the most goals into their nets, for quite some time now.
This Saturday, they are going to host the most prolific frontline in the country, and from here it’s child’s play to predict the outcome of the game.
Kevin Muscat’s men have scored three or more goals in four of the last six trips they made to the city of Godsford. And to pile on, they have scored two or more goals in seven of their last eleven away ties, while the hosts for the tie conceded a total of 24 goals in their last nine home-fixtures.
Flex your fingers, for you are going to need it to count the number of goals this weekend.
