Newcastle Jets vs Western United
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: McDonald Jones Stadium.
Mark Rudan’s men are on a roll, and they are eager to get into the playoff mix. They do have a winning streak going on for them, and importantly, they have three games in hand.
However, they are a bit inexperienced, and Carl Robinson’s men are on an unbeaten run as well. Especially so at their home, their performances have been top-notch this season.
As such, either team to score goals this Saturday.
Newcastle Jets vs Western United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a goalless draw.
- Only once have these two locked horns before that, and then, Robinson’s men registered a 0-1 victory on the road, and thus they have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h fixtures.
- On top of that, they are yet to concede a goal against this rival as well.
Newcastle Jets vs Western United: Prediction
Rudan’s men are on an impressive three-game winning run, and in the process, they had scored a total of 13 goals. They also are higher in the table despite having three matches in hand, and they are chasing a spot in the playoff mix – which a win this weekend will help them move further nearer.
As such, expect them to avoid a loss at the least this weekend. However, their counterparts are far more experienced than them, and were unbeaten in nine of their last ten overall match-ups. They also are unbeaten at home in their past five appearances, and had won three of their past four games here too.
Furthermore, they have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival, and importantly, their sole defeat at this ground this year had come against Sydney – who not only are the toppers, but also are the best team in the country by a mile.
As such, expect both teams to score goals at least once this Saturday.
