Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne City Tips & Betting Preview

It is a battle between of two vastly different teams on Friday night as the cellar dwelling Mariners host the high-flying Melbourne City at Central Coast Stadium.

The Central Coast Mariners have lost nine straight games and a tenth on Friday night would see them equal the longest winless streak in A-League history. City is flying in second position and are unbeaten across their last three games, two of which were wins.

It looms as more of the same for both sides as City should sweep aside Central Coast.
