Newcastle Jets vs Perth Glory
Australia – A-League
Date: Friday, 6 April 2018
Kick-Off at 10:50 UK
Venue: McDonald Jones Stadium (Newcastle).
The atmosphere in Newcastle Jets’ dressing room has been entirely ruined after back-to-back demolishing defeats to the likes of Adelaide United and Melbourne City. The team led by Ernie Merrick will thus desperately need results in the final two games of the regular season in order to boost up their confidence ahead of the playoffs challenges.
Grabbing one against the like of Perth Glory will be quiet a tough task given that the visitors are in a huge need for points in the battle for the top six finish. The Glory sit eighth at the moment being three points shy of the playoffs spots and a win here would grant them the chance to beat direct rivals Brisbane Roar in the last round’s fixture next weekend.
The visitors have generally been enjoying a solid spell of form lately with three wins and a draw in four games. Nonetheless, they could not stay competitive against the defending champions and runaway leaders Sydney last weekend when they conced3ed three early goals. They pulled off two later on, but proved out to be only for consolation.
However, Perth’s attacking line should have plenty of room to create in the final third here as their rivals have shipped as many as eight in last two league affairs. Adam Taggart was the one who bagged a brace in the weekend’s loss to the Sky Blues and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer bet here.
Newcastle Jets vs Perth Glory: Head-to-head
Perth have entirely dominated this match-up over the course of history.
They’ve won 27, drawn 9 and lost only 8 of 44 encounters with the Jets.
Each of last six H2H meetings between these two likes saw three or more goals as well as both teams on the scoreline.
Newcastle Jets vs Perth Glory: Prediction
We obviously expect to witness the continuation of a high-scoring trend in H2H clashes between these two sides.
Since the Jets have been really poor defensively of late, the value is with Perth Glory to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.20.
