Newcastle Jets vs Brisbane Roar
Date: 28 December 2019, Saturday.
Kick-off at 8:30 UK/ 9:30 Central European Time
Venue: McDonald Jones Stadium (Newcastle).
Newcastle Jets and Brisbane Roar look to overturn poor run of results when they meet on Saturday’s A-League fixture.
The teams sit at the foot of the table with 8 points from 9 matches each, interestingly they have 2 games in hand compared to other teams in the league.
This is similar fate for the teams as in 2018-19 season as the hosts ended up 7th and Roar at 10th respectively.
Both managers saw their team’s defense fall in tatters lately, Jets conceding 10 in their last 2 and Road let in 7 during the same period.
Last week saw the Jets losing heavily at Perth by a 2-6 score-line, which put them on a three-match losing streak.
Meantime, Roar lost at home, 0-2 to the newly introduced franchise Western United to take their losing streak to 2 games.

Newcastle Jets vs Brisbane Roar Prediction
There is little to write about the forms of both teams, since they have been highly inconsistent both home and away in the early half of this A-League season.
However, we can comment that, with their position at the foot of the table, combined with losing steaks, both managers will be desperate for a win here. We strongly believe they will set up their playing eleven to go for full three points.
Yet, this is another A-League fixture of this weekend, where we cannot bank on a full-time winner.
Since we have two teams with extremely vulnerable defenses, once again, our punt is from goal markets. The safe option is Over 2.5 goals, while brave punters can go for Both teams to score and Over 2.5 goals combo for 1.80 odd.
