Macarthur vs Central Coast Mariners Tips


Central Coast are desperate to return to the top two and host a Macarthur side they are yet to lose to. The Bulls have impressed over the last month and are six matches unbeaten in the league. 

I’m tipping under 2.5 goals and a draw.

  • Macarthur are unbeaten in their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Macarthur have drawn 4 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Macarthur have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Central Coast are unbeaten in 3 of their last 4 matches (A-League).
  • Central Coast have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 4 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Central Coast have a 2-0 record in the head-to-head with no draws in two encounters. 

The Mariners picked up a 2-0 win at home in their last meeting with Macarthur. Striker Matt Simon opened the scoring before substitute Matthew Hatch netted his debut goal to seal the win.

Macarthur Form


Macarthur sit four points clear inside the top six as the finals draw nearer. 

The Bulls are unbeaten in their last six matches and even picked up a hard-fought point away to Perth Glory in a scoreless draw. Forward Michael Ruhs had a late chance to steal the win, while goalkeeper Adam Federici kept the home side at bay. 

Macarthur were then forced to come from behind in their 2-1 win against Melbourne Victory. Spaniard Markel Susaeta equalised before defender James Meredith scored the winner with a headed effort from a set-piece.

Defender Aleksander Jovanovic is a chance to return from a calf problem, while midfielder Tommy Oar is still out with injury.

Central Coast Mariners Form


Central Coast remain on the hunt for a top-two finish in the league. 

Following their 4-0 defeat to Brisbane, the Mariners responded with a 1-1 draw against Melbourne Victory.

Striker Matt Simon opened the scoring in the fourth minute before the Victory hit back midway through the second half and hung on for the point. 

The Mariners ended their six match winless run with a narrow 1-0 win over the Newcastle Jets. Simon converted the game’s only goal from the penalty spot in the 54th minute to give his side a much-needed win.

This euphoria was short-lived as the Mariners went down 1-0 to Melbourne City away from home. The match’s ending sparked controversy as the visitors had a  90th minute penalty decision changed after the referee’s consultation with the VAR.
