Western United vs Newcastle Jets Prediction

Western United are unbeaten in each of their past 7 league fixtures. Their attacking side have managed to score in each of those matches and have also recorded a clean sheet in 4 of those.

At home, they have only lost once since the beginning of this season. Currently they follow six straight winning games without leaking goals in five of those. With such a strong spell of form at home, we can’t expect them to fail bagging a win here.

On the other side, Newcastle Jets have only won once on road this campaign so far. They have failed to prevent opposition from scoring in each of their past 6 on road league affairs.

By the looks of things, we expect a win for the hosts at the end of this one. Considering their defense, Newcastle will find it difficult to score in this fixture.
