Newcastle Jets vs Sydney FC Tips 


Sydney are flying with their striker Bobo in red hot form. While the Jets have been competitive, they failed to make an impact when it matters. 

I’m tipping Sydney to win and over 2.5 goals with Bobo to score.

  • Newcastle have lost 9 of their last 11 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have seen over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 4 matches against Sydney (A-League).
  • Sydney’s Bobo has scored 4 goals in his last 4 matches (A-League).
  • Sydney have won 3 of their last 4 matches against Newcastle (A-League).

Head to Head


Sydney have a 29-9 record in the head-to-head against Newcastle with 10 draws in 48 encounters. 

Second half goals to Serbian midfielder Milos Ninkovic and defender Alex Wilkinson saw the Sky Blues escape with a 2-1 win the last time they met.

Newcastle Jets Form


Newcastle sit at the bottom of the table with nine losses in their last 11 matches. 

Striker Roy O’Donovan and midfielder Steven Ugarkovic scored as the Jets held Macarthur to a 2-2 draw away from home. 

A 2-0 loss followed at the hands of Western United, before the Jets went down 3-1 to Melbourne City away from home. Ugarkovic scored a late consolation goal for the Jets. 

Newcastle Jets Team News


Winger Ramy Najjarine is out of this clash with an ankle injury.

Sydney FC Form


The Sky Blues are knocking on the door of a top two finish after several strong performances. 

After conceding the first two goals, Sydney clawed their way back to draw 2-2 with Central Coast. Serbian midfielder Milos Ninkovic pulled one back just before the break, before forward Trent Buhagiar equalised in the second half. 

A 1-0 win over Melbourne Victory followed with Brazilian forward Bobo netting the decisive goal. 

But Sydney’s six match unbeaten run would come to an end at the hands of rivals Western Sydney in a 3-2 loss. Defender Alex Wilkinson and Bobo scored Sydney’s goals, with the Brazilian also missing a penalty.

Sydney FC Team News


Left back Michael Zullo is still out with a calf problem, while midfielder Chris Zuvela will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Striker Adam Le Fondre will not feature for the Sky Blues with the Englishman still in hotel quarantine after recently signing for the club.
