Central Coast Mariners vs Sydney FC Tips


Central Coast Mariners lead 2-1 after the first leg and the reigning champions are a win or draw away from a place in the A-League Grand Final.

Sydney FC have it all to do in the second-leg of their semi-final and I'm predicting this will be the end of the road for the Sky Blues.

  • Central Coast Mariners have won their last 6 A-League matches 
  • Central Coast Mariners have seen BTTS in 6 of the last 7 matches against Sydney FC
  • Sydney FC have lost their last 2 away matches 

Head To Head


The Mariners have won three of their last 10 against Sydney FC, with the latter winning the other seven. 

One of those Central Coast wins came in last week's semi-final first leg, which they won 2-1.

Central Coast Mariners Form 


Central Coast Mariners have been the team to beat in the A-League this season, with the reigning premiers topping the ladder despite coming under huge pressure from the Wellington Phoenix. 

Six wins in their last six league games have come alongside a stunning run to the final of the AFC Cup in which they were able to lift the trophy.

With just six defeats in the A-League all season, the Mariners have been incredibly tough to beat and head into the second leg of this semi-final in the box seat after a 2-1 victory last weekend. 

Sydney FC Form 


Sydney FC face their biggest test of the campaign after slipping to a 2-1 loss at home in the first-leg of this semi-final.

A 7-1 win over Perth Glory in their final game of the regular season was followed by a stunning 4-0 win over Macarthur in the Elimination Final. 

The Sky Blues have, however, lost their last two away matches.

Verdict

I am backing the Mariners to continue their stunning run of form and eliminate Sydney FC. The Sky Blues can continue their scoring form with BTTS tipped.
