Central Coast Mariners vs Wellington Phoenix Tips


The Central Coast Mariners bounced back to winning ways by edging past Melbourne City in a 2-1 win

The Wellington Phoenix beat the Brisbane Roar 1-0 to maintain their three-point lead at the top of the A-League ladder, but I think a trip to their top two rivals might be tough.

  • Central Coast Mariners have won 5 of their last 6 matches
  • Central Coast Mariners have won their last 2 home matches
  • Central Coast Mariners have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 2 matches against Wellington Phoenix
  • Wellington Phoenix lost their last away game

Head To Head


The Mariners have won three of their last 10 meetings. In this time, the Phoenix have won four wins, with the other three ending as draws. 

Central Coast Mariners Form 


The Central Coast Mariners arrive for this one on the back of a 2-1 win over Melbourne City that made it five wins in their last six league games. 

While four of these five wins have come by a single goal in low-scoring games, the Mariners will not care how they win.

The Mariners are second on the ladder, three points behind the Phoenix. They will jump into top spot on goal difference if winning on Saturday.

Wellington Phoenix Form 


The Wellington Phoenix only needed one goal scored in the second minute of the game as they beat Brisbane Roar 1-0 last weekend.

The victory was their second win in a row, with both coming at home having also beaten Sydney FC 2-1 in Wellington.

Their last defeat came in their latest away game as they slipped to a 1-0 loss to Melbourne City, but the Phoenix have recovered to lead the ladder by three points.

Verdict

I am backing the Mariners to secure a vital win as they drag themselves level on points with their title rivals in what should be a low-scoring game.
