Western Sydney Wanderers vs Newcastle Jets
Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Kick-Off at 08:50 UK/ 09:50 CET
Venue: Glen Willow Oval (Mudgee).
Markus Babbel’s side is 5th in the league after 4 rounds completed. His team has managed to win and lose 1 game each and 2 matches ended as draws. At present they are unbeaten in the last 2 matches in the league.
In the last 6 games across all venues they have won and lost 2 matches each, and over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those matches as well. But things at home is not so satisfactory for the club from Sydney. They are on a 3 match winless streak at home in all competitions. In all 5 home matches, they played previously, the final score had over 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
The current runners-up of the competition are second from the bottom of the table. They are winless this season and has lost 2 in the 4 matches played. The season has just started and they have enough time for a comeback.
Under 2.5 goals came in 5 of their last 6 matches across all venues. From their last 5 away matches, 2 were won and lost. So away fixtures are not necessarily their comfort zone. This is not a performance that was expected from them and the fans are demanding improvements from the Jets.
Wanderers are the clear favorites coming into this game as they have been unbeaten in the last 2 matches. The away side will have to find a win soon and get their season going.

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Newcastle Jets: Prediction
Let’s accept the fact that the Jets are nowhere near their past season’s performance. But they have not many changes in the squad and shown good spirit in their last match against Sydney FC which ended as a draw. The hosts are also on the back of a draw in their last league game, so we can expect points shared this Friday. Also, the Jets may win it as they are the runners-up. So we can bet on a double chance on a draw or Newcastle winning with 1.75 odd.
In 2 of the games at this ground this season, over 2.5 goals were scored. Also, the same trend is applicable in 8 of the last 10 matches that the hosts played at home. So we can expect the same on Friday and bet on the same with 1.75 odd.
