Newcastle Jets vs Melbourne Victory Tips 


The league’s cellar dwellers meet in Newcastle. Both sides are capable of scoring but neither have been particularly good defensively this season. 

I’m backing BTTS and a draw.

  • Newcastle have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League). 
  • Newcastle are unbeaten in 4 of their last 5 matches against the Victory (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 away matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory are unbeaten in their last 3 away matches against Newcastle (A-League).

Head to Head


Both teams have 19 wins each in the head-to-head with 10 draws in 48 encounters. 

The Jets picked up a narrow 1-0 in Melbourne in their last meeting. Midfielder Angus Thurgate broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute to give the Jets their first win of the season.

Newcastle Jets Form


The Jets will be desperate for a win after six consecutive losses. 

Newcastle suffered their biggest home defeat of the season when they went down 4-1 to Adelaide United at home. 

Things then failed to improve with the side travelling to Perth where they failed to beat the Glory. Despite striker Roy O’Donovan pulling one back for his side after Perth had scored two first half goals, it wasn’t enough as the Jets lost 2-1.

The Jets then hosted a Western United with a poor away record, but failed to capitalise on their opportunities in a 1-0 loss.

Newcastle Jets Team News


Defender Nigel Boogard is out with a leg injury while forward Tete Yengi will also miss with a foot problem. 

Midfielder Ben Kantarovski is a chance to feature after recovering from a calf injury.

Melbourne Victory Form


Melbourne Victory have won just the one game in their last 11. 

Their season well and truly came to an end in a 4-1 loss away to Wellington Phoenix. 

To their credit, the Victory put in a spirited performance the following week against Central Coast. Ex-Wigan winger Callum McManaman opened the scoring, with the side ultimately hanging on for a 1-1 draw. 

But another loss was not far away with the four-time champions suffering a 3-0 defeat at home to Sydney FC. Adding to Victory’s woes was forward Elvis Kamsoba’s sending off in the first half of that match.

Melbourne Victory Team News


Kamsoba will miss this match due to suspension after receiving two yellow cards in the loss to Sydney. 

Defender Ryan Shotton will miss once again with a groin injury, while winger Marco Rojas remains sidelined with a fractured leg. 

In more optimistic news, striker Rudy Gestede is in contention to return from a knee injury.
