Melbourne Victory vs Central Coast Mariners Tips 


Central Coast have a solid recent record against the Victory, who have lost seven of their last 10 matches. Both sides have seen several high scoring encounters recently as well. 

I’m tipping over 3.5 goals and a Mariners win.

  • Melbourne Victory have lost 7 of their last 10 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have lost 4 of their last 5 home matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen over 3.5 goals in 5 of their last 7 matches against Central Coast (A-League). 
  • Central Coast have seen over 3.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches (A-League).
  • Central Coast have won 2 of their last 3 matches against the Victory (A-League).

Head to Head


Melbourne Victory have a 23-11 record in the head-to-head with 12 draws in 46 encounters. 

Their last meeting saw the Victory hang on for a 1-1 draw in Gosford. The visitors took the lead early through ex-Wigan winger Callum McManaman before the Marco Urena hit back for the Mariners. 

Melbourne Victory Form


It’s been a tumultuous few months for the Victory, especially after losing head coach Grant Brebner. 

The Scotsman was sacked after the club’s 7-0 defeat to Melbourne City, with former Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean taking over in the interim. 

Kean’s first match in charge saw his side record a dramatic 5-4 win over Western Sydney. Striker Ben Folami starred with a brace while defender Dylan Ryan scored his second for the season. 

A 1-0 loss against reigning champions Sydney FC followed, with Victory goalkeeper Matt Acton making several impressive saves.

New Zealand international Marco Rojas is still out with a fractured ankle. Defender Ryan Shotton will also miss the match with a knee injury. 

Central Coast Mariners Form


Central Coast’s position towards the top end of the table is beginning to slip.

Following their 1-0 loss to Western United, the Mariners jumped out to a 2-0 lead against Sydney FC. A poor second half performance allowed the Sky Blues to claw their way back and rescue a point with the match ending 2-2. 

The Mariners’ woes exacerbated when they suffered their greatest loss of the season in a 4-0 defeat at home against Brisbane Roar.
