Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets Prediction
The hosts succumbed to the first defeat of their campaign last week after WS Wanderers managed to stun them with a 1-0 scorecard. Despite registering twice as many shots at goal as their foes in that clash, Sydney FC were far from clinical in each of their efforts, ultimately returning home empty-handed.
Newcastle Jets, on the other hand, have got off to a poor start this season, and are yet to register a win. Their opening matchup saw them share the spoils with Central Coast Mariners on the road, following which they lost to Adelaide United in their most recent encounter at home.
In all honesty, the away side have no reason to have their hopes up for a change in fortune this week. The visitors have not secured the bragging rights in their last nine visits to this venue, and have been at the losing end in seven of those clashes as well.
Taking into account that the hosts have already enjoyed success in their last fixture here, Newcastle Jets are likely to be the ones deprived of all three points on Friday.
Furthermore, the home side have been caught napping at the back and have been breached at least once in their last three games. With two out of their previous three head to head encounters here also witnessing both teams on the scoreboards, count on neither side to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
