Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets
Australia – A-League
Date: Tuesday, 21 July 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: Jubilee Oval.
The Sky Blues are the reigning champions of the competition, and they are well set to defend their title in style this time around as well. Despite having a game in hand, they have a lead of nine points at the top as of now, and have scored the most number of goals, as well as have conceded the least.
Moreover, they have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years, and Carl Robinson’s men have been a total disaster away from home.
Likely, expect a winning performance from Sydney this Tuesday.

Sydney vs Newcastle Jets: Prediction
The Sky Blues are the defending champions, and they easily have been the best team in the league this campaign too. They were unbeaten in 23 of their previous 26 overall fixtures, and of these three losses, one had come in the Champions League.
At this venue, they were unbeaten in 13 of their preceding 14 appearances, and in the process had even gone through an eight-match winning streak.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 12 of their last 16 overall fixtures, and remained winless in 12 of their former 14 road trips as well. On top of that, Corica’s men are unbeaten against this rival since 2012 at this stadium, and had recorded 16 of the preceding 18 h2h wins.
Taking into account these observations, expect a dominating Sydney win this Tuesday.
