Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts have drawn three of their last four games but have scored in four of their last five home matches.
  • The visitors have opened the scoring in four of their last five fixtures.
  • Central Coast Mariners are unbeaten in seven of their last eight matches.

Resolute Wanderers

The hosts come into this match off the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Brisbane Roar and that made it three stalemate’s across their last four matches. Mark Rudan’s men currently sit second-bottom of the table having won just five of their 20 matches played this campaign. Only three other sides in the entire division have conceded fewer goals than Western Sydney Wanderers, highlighting how solid they have been defensively. Unfortunately for them, their attack has lacked any potency, with only bottom side Perth Glory scoring fewer. They have a solid foundation to build from but until they find that attacking edge, they’re going to continue to struggle to create chances.

On the flip side, the visitors are the joint-third highest scorers in the division. However, 24 of the 34 goals they have scored have come on home soil and it’s been on the road that they have had issues. Based on away form alone then the ‘Mariners’ would be sitting second bottom of the table and this needs to improve if they’re to edge their way into the playoffs. They’re conceding an average of 1.66 goals per game on the road this season and despite their recent good form, they’ll need to shake off their awayday blues.

Points to be shared

There’s no denying that the visitors have the more deadly attack, but it doesn’t seem to bear fruit on the road. We think the visitors will struggle against this resolute Western Sydney backline and we think there’s value to be had on this finishing as a draw. The hosts have een drawing games at a consistent rate and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see this one finish all square, possibly via a 1-1 scoreline.
