Melbourne Victory vs Central Coast Mariners
Australia – A-League
Date: Monday, 3 August 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: Jubilee Oval (Sydney).

The descent from the Second runners-up last season to falling near the foot of the table has been a real blow to Melbourne Victory this season in the A-league. They have lost the last four fixtures in the schedule, but all these matches were against teams above them in the table.

Grant Brebner will have a chance to pick his team up from the consecutive losses when they host the rock bottom side.

Central Coast Mariners have yet again proved that they belong to the bottom of the league table having picked up just 15 points from their 25 league appearances. They are winless for the last 13 matches in the campaign, following a 1-1 draw at home with WS Wanderers in the previous clash.

With 11 losses in their dozen outings so far, the odds are well stacked against the Mariners.

Melbourne Victory vs Central Coast Mariners Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
  • Their last seven matches have seen both teams score.
  • The teams have averaged 3.8 goals in the last 15 clashes.
  • The visitor has won only one of their past 19 overall meetings.

Melbourne Victory vs Central Coast Mariners Prediction

It’s a goal fiasco when these two teams meet, and the average of 3.8 goals in the recent five years is an obvious example of the action that is available in ninety minutes.

The Victory has a better run in the league than the visitors, which puts them in the front to be the favorites to win. The home win will probably be the best bet considering the Mariner’s poor away form.

From the goals area, the tip for a high-scoring affair is there on the table. Besides, their h2h history also suggests a BTTS in the game and both teams are in a similar scoring average in the league.
