Perth Glory vs Newcastle Jets
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 09:00 UK/ 10:00 CET
Venue: nib Stadium (Perth).
The table toppers will host the Jets on round 16 of the A-League this Sunday. They will be aiming for keeping the momentum that they got at the start of the season.
Glory is under the challenge from their nearest opponents Sydney FC, as just 2 points separate them in the table. With both of their previous league games ending as draws, the points they lost may come back to haunt them at the end of the season.
They lost only once this season, which was against Sydney itself. But Tony Popovic’s side has won 3 of their recent 5 matches across all venues apart from that defeat. Three of those games at home had over 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
Newcastle is stumbling in their recent away games losing 3 on the trot. They have lost 4 of their recent 5 matches away from home. The only win in that period came against the Mariners who are at the bottom of the table.
The hosts may walk away with 3 points easily if the Jets cannot lose their habit of losing matches on the road.
Perth Glory vs Newcastle Jets: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Perth has 3 wins and a loss against these opponents in their last 5 h2h matches.
- Currently, they are on a 2 match win streak against the Jets across all venues.
- More than 2.5 goals came in 3 of the last 5 h2hh matches between these two teams.
- The hosts have won 3 of their previous 5 matches with Jets at home.
- In the 3 recent matches between them here, the final score had over 2.5 goals in total and both sides scored as well.
Perth Glory vs Newcastle Jets: Prediction
In the current situation, I don’t think the hosts losing this game. They have lost only once this season against an opponent far stronger than the Jets. With home support, I think they will get an easy win like in 3 previous h2h matches. So we can bet on the hosts to win with 1.95 odds.
The hosts have been leaking goals in their recent home matches. Even though they have been one of the best defensive sides this season, the last 3 home games saw them concede goals. On the other hand, Ernie Merrick’s team have scored in 3 of their recent away games as well. So a bet can be placed on both teams scoring with 1.58 odds.
