Western Sydney Wanderers vs Central Coast Mariners
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick-off at 06.35 UK/ 07.35 CET
Venue: Spotless Stadium (Sydney).
Wanderers are on a losing course at this moment, as they lost 8 out of the possible 10 matches. Their weakness lies in the defensive half, as they concede 2.35 goals per game. The former AFC Champions League winners are very weak in keeping possession of the ball and defending set-piece play.
The absence of quality players in the middle of the park to dictate play is hurting them the most. Nobody from this squad has shown maturity to calm down the players and lead them from the front.
The former A-League winners have been the laughing-stock in this year’s League. Their players forget about the basics of football and are seen as a depleted bunch of group. Mariners are one of the worst defensive units in the league, as they conceded 2.35 goals per game.
The Yellow & Navy play long ball football and keep less possession of the ball with them. The forward line never attacks the post and do not get enough supply from the center of midfield.

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Central Coast Mariners Prediction
This is the chance to win back some pride for the away team, as they face the opposition having similar fortunes. The match will be an open encounter, as both teams hold the record for the worst defense in this league. Chance will be created at both ends, but it will be interesting to watch how their forward line performs.
Both teams don’t have any quality player up front to upset the tie in their favor. Chance will come thick and fast as the game goes on. I personally don’t think any of their attacking players will have the capability to find back of the net in this fixture.
