Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets Tips

It’s top versus bottom in the A-League. Melbourne City have an incredible record at home and host the Jets who have not won in their last 14 matches. 

I’m tipping BTTS and City to win with over 3.5 goals.

  • Melbourne City have won 5 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne City have won 10 of their last 11 home matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne City have seen over 3.5 goals in 5 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have lost 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have seen BTTS in 6 of their last 8 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle are win-less in their last 14 matches (A-League).

Head to Head

Melbourne City have a 17-13 advantage in the head-to-head with four draws in 34 encounters.

Their last meeting saw City cruise home to a 3-1 win at AAMI Park. Forwards Andrew Nabbout and Jamie Maclaren added to their respective tallies, while captain Scott Jamieson scored a rare goal. 

Melbourne City Form

Melbourne City created history when they clinched their inaugural A-League premiership.

City were forced to share the points with Wellington in a 2-2 draw after the Phoenix equalised late. Japanese import Naoki Tsubaki and in-form striker Jamie Maclaren scored City’s goals in a frustrating affair for the home side, who missed several chances to win it. 

They only had to wait another week before lifting the premier’s plate with a 1-0 win over Central Coast. Ex-Bolton winger Craig Noone scored the decisive goal, while the VAR came to City’s aid late as it ruled out a Mariners penalty in stoppage time. 

City would then suffer its first defeat in 10 matches as they went down 3-0 away to Brisbane. Having already won the premiership, City fielded an inexperienced side with several first-choice players rested.

Melbourne City Team News

Nathaniel Atkinson is out with a hamstring injury and will miss the remainder of the season.

Several of City’s stars, including Noone, midfielder Adrian Luna and goalkeeper Tom Glover should return after they were rested in the last match.

Newcastle Jets Form

Newcastle sit rooted at the bottom of the table after another horror season.

The Jets picked up a promising point against reigning champions Sydney FC, whom they held to a 1-1 draw. Newcastle forward Roy O’Donovan opened the scoring with a penalty before an own goal from defender Nigel Boogard allowed the Sky Blues back into the match. 

A narrow 1-0 defeat to the Central Coast followed, with the Mariners converting a penalty just after half-time. 

The Jets then travelled to Brisbane where a late goal undid all their hard work once again. Falling behind early, Newcastle got back on the board after Roar midfielder James O’Shea turned the ball in for an own goal.

Brisbane would ultimately find a late goal to sink the Jets 2-1 and inflict a fourth loss in five matches.

Midfielder Luka Prso will spend another week on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.
