Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory Tips


The Central Coast Mariners were forced to strain every defensive sinew in their last match against Sydney FC with a 0-0 draw seeing them reach the Grand Final via a 2-1 aggregate win.

Melbourne Victory secured a stunning 2-1 win on the road against Wellington Phoenix for their own 2-1 aggregate win. I'm predicting they come up short as the Mariners secure back-to-back titles.

  • Central Coast Mariners have won 6 of their last 7 matches (A-League)
  • Central Coast Mariners won their last match against Melbourne Victory
  • Melbourne Victory have lost 1 of their last 2 away matches

Head To Head


The Mariners have won two of their last 10 against Melbourne, with the latter winning three times and the other five ending in draws. 

This season, the first two meetings ended in draws (2-2 and 1-1) before the Mariners won most recently with a 1-0 success.

Central Coast Mariners Form


The Central Coast Mariners have been outstanding this season, with their exploits seeing them top the ladder at the culmination of the regular season. 

Seventeen wins, four draws and six defeats saw the Mariners secure 55 points, with this enough to see them end two points clear of Wellington Phoenix in second. 

The reigning champions' run to the top was built on a stunning streak in which they won five matches in a row. 

In the semi-finals, the Mariners beat Sydney FC 2-1 on the road before keeping a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw at home last week.

Melbourne Victory Form 


Melbourne Victory have had to be at their best in recent weeks to stay alive in the finals series.

Their win over Melbourne City in the Elimination Final came via penalties before they beat Wellington Phoenix 2-1 over two-legs in the semi-final.

A 0-0 draw at home was followed by a 2-1 win in Wellington to see the third placed finishers the Victory eliminate sixth and second on the ladder in the finals.

Verdict

I am backing the Grand Final to see the Mariners secure the win inside 90 minutes and secure back-to-back premierships.
