Melbourne City FC vs Newcastle Jets Prediction

Even though they are not stable in their wins this season, Melbourne City has managed to stay unbeaten in six of their last ten matches in the campaign.

Also, the host shared the spoils in their previous 2-2 encounter with Brisbane Roar on the road. Even so, the City will be glad to return home as their prior home match gave all three points for them.

Besides that, the host has lost only two of their previous ten home matches in the campaign. So, they will be pretty confident of facing the Jets at AAMI Park.

The winless days for Jets have not ended for them in the A-league yet. In their previous encounter, Newcastle Jets had their sixth loss marked against Sydney FC on the road with a 1-2 scoreline.

Apart from that, the Jets are on a three-game losing run in their league away games. Also, they have recorded only one win in their prior six away fixtures.

As such, Melbourne City has more chance of winning the game with their overall league performance. With nine of the City’s last ten matches producing more than three goals per match, we can expect the total score to be probably over 2.5 goals in the match.
