Sydney FC vs Central Coast Mariners Tips


Sydney FC hammered Macarthur in their last outing to secure their place in the A-League semi-finals. Can they repeat that commanding performance?

The Central Coast Mariners return to league duty after securing the AFC Cup title in a 1-0 win over Al-Ahed at the weekend. Having had such a hectic schedule, they might be susceptable here. 

  • Sydney FC have won their last 4 home matches
  • Central Coast Mariners' last defeat came away to Sydney FC back in March
  • Central Coast Mariners have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 6 matches against Sydney FC

Head To Head


Sydney FC have won seven of their last 10 against the Mariners with Central Coast winning three times. 

Sydney FC Form 


Sydney FC impressed across the A-League season, finishing in fourth on the ladder. 

Despite winning 12 of their 27 matches and picking up 41 points, the Sky Blues have largely gone under the radar as premiership contenders. 

Two commanding wins over Perth Glory (7-1) and Macarthur (4-0), the latter in last week's Elimination Final, sees Sydney arrive for this one in great form.

Central Coast Mariners Form


The Central Coast Mariners have been exceptionally good this season, winning 17 of their 27 league games, finishing at the top of the ladder and winning the AFC Cup in the past few weeks. 

They sealed the Premiers Plate thanks to a 2-0 win over Adelaide United last week and then four days later beat Al-Ahed 1-0 in the final of the AFC Cup in Oman on Sunday.

Central Coast are now on a run of four wins in a row in all competitions and are unbeaten in their last eight matches since going down away to Sydney FC in March. 

Verdict

I am backing both sides to score in this first leg and taking Sydney FC to head into the second-leg with an advantage following a home win.
