Reason For Central Coast Mariners vs Adelaide United Predictions

  • Central Coast Mariners are bottom of the league, having won just twice this season and with four losses in their last five they are desperate to find three points.
  • Adelaide United have won five of their last six games moving into 4th position. They are one of two sides that have yet to draw this season.
  • Central Coast are the lowest scorers so far this season, scoring just seven goals, less than one a game. They’ve conceded 13, less than second placed Melbourne City.
  • Adelaide United have averaged two goals a game over their last six games and conceded an average of a goal a game as they continue their rich vein of form.

Can Central Coast finally kick start their season?

Central Coast Mariners have only won twice so far this season and find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table, although they have played a game less than the majority of the season of the league. Their season hasn’t really got started yet and they’ve scored just seven goals in eight games.

Their defensive work hasn’t been awful and they’ve conceded less than four sides above them but their poor form means that they haven’t been able to push on towards the playoffs. A win this weekend seems essential in keeping themselves in touch with the top six but a victory would be a big shock.

Form is on the side of Adelaide; is another win on the cards?

Adelaide United lost their opening two games of the season but since then they’ve improved massively, winning five of six games with the only blemish on their record being a 2-1 loss to Wellington Phoenix. The side look good going forward but their defensive record could do with a little improvement with just one clean sheet this season.

The Reds have averaged just under two goals a game over the season with 15 goals in eight games. Riley McGree has been the stand out performer with six goals but only Nikola Mileusnic has scored more than one in the rest of the squad and the other attacking members of the squad need to step up and get themselves on the scoresheet more often.

Can Central Coast overcome the odds this weekend?

Despite being at home this weekend, it’s hard to see Central Coast Mariners coming away with a victory this weekend and with Adelaide United being in form, we’re predicting that the visitors will come away with all three points. They aren’t odds on for the win and that feels very generous with all the signs pointing towards an Adelaide win.

The away side have found it hard to keep a clean sheet however and Central Coast have only drawn a blank twice this season so we can see them getting on the scoresheet this weekend. We’re predicting that Adelaide United will come away with a 2-1 win, a victory that isn’t that comfortable but leaves The Reds travelling home with six wins from seven.
