Melbourne City to get an early lead
The hosts are top of the A-League and 7 points above second-placed Sydney FC. The best part is there are only two games to go for most teams in the League. Melbourne City has the best run of the form in the league right now and getting a resounding victory over the struggling Newcastle Jets should be easy here. A home win is our first pick for this fixture.
Lots of goals expected on match day
We are also tipping a lot of goals in this game. The hosts have been doing wonders in front of goals and backing them to score at least three goals in this game looks plausible. But while Melbourne City averages three goals per match in the last ten fixtures, Newcastle Jets are victims of woeful defending. The visitors are not only the last on the A-League table but have not registered victory in 14 games, during which they have been defeated 11 times and secured three draws.
The hosts to win both halves
The third prediction for this fixture backs the hosts to get an early lead and carry it through the second half. Patrick Kisnorbo and his squad bring top-quality to this game. They are top of the league and have the highest goalscorer in the league (Jamie MacLaren). Despite losing their last fixture to Brisbane Roar, we expect Kisnorbo to turn things around on Saturday withJamie MacLaren leading the attacking front .
Game Preview: Melbourne City Looks Set to Secure Top Finish
Melbourne City hopes to get back to winning ways on Saturday against Newcastle Jets. Can they get a deserved victory in this game?
The truth is, soccer can be unpredictable at times. In our last preview, we tipped fourth-placed Brisbane Roar to score first, which they did. However, things should get better for Patrick Kisnorbo as he prepares his squad for the 25th fixture of the season against the Newcastle Jets. The visitors are struggling defensively, which gives Melbourne City an edge and the impetus they need to secure points on Saturday.
Newcastle Jets have been woeful in the last fourteen games, during which victory has remained a distant wish. Crag Deans should also worry about facing a much stronger side in Melbourne City. But in football, anything is possible, so we will not rule out the visitors just yet. However, another worry for the travelling squad is that their manager, Craig Deans, has only got one victory after 16 games in charge, losing 11 and getting four draws. With that, it almost looks like Newcastle Jets have no to chance of winning or rather; they will have to put in a major shift forward early in the game.
