  • Central Coast have won 3 of their last 4 home matches (A-League).
  • Central Coast have seen over 3.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 against the Victory (A-League).

Head to Head


Melbourne Victory have a 23-11 advantage in the head-to-head with 11 draws in 45 matches. 

Their last meeting was a dramatic five goal thriller with Central Coast winning 3-2. 

Trailing 2-1 with five minutes to go, young forward Dylan Ruiz-Diaz won the game for the Mariners with a late brace.

Central Coast Mariners Form


Central Coast remain on top of the A-League table with five wins from their last eight matches. 

Goals either side of half-time to captain Matt Simon and debutant Matthew Hatch saw the Mariners defeat Macarthur 2-0 for the second time this season. 

Simon was on target the following week as well, albeit from the penalty spot. His 90th minute spot kick saw the Mariners walk away with a point against Perth in a 2-2 draw. 

The side’s three-match unbeaten run came to an end against Melbourne City away from home in a 2-0 loss. The Mariners were denied a late chance after the referee upheld his decision not to award them a penalty, despite consulting with the VAR.

Central Coast Mariners Team News


Midfielder Gianni Stensness will miss this match with a foot injury. Aside from this, the Mariners will come in with a fully fit line-up.

Melbourne Victory Form


Melbourne Victory’s season continues to spiral out of control. 

They sit bottom of the table and have lost their last four matches, having conceded 17 goals across those games.

The club suffered their worst-ever defeat when they went down 6-0 to Melbourne City in the derby. A 3-1 loss to Adelaide followed, despite midfielder Jake Brimmer opening the scoring. 

Their most recent match saw them suffer a 4-1 defeat away to Wellington.

Melbourne Victory Team News


Forward Marco Rojas is expected to miss the rest of the season with a broken leg. 

Defenders Ryan Shotton and Dylan Ryan will sit out with groin and knee injuries respectively.
