Sydney enter into the match with a mediocre record against Newcastle in recent head-to-head outings. The visitors have only managed two wins in the last five away matches against Newcastle. Despite this terrible record, it is the visitors who come into the game with a decent record of just one loss in the last five games. Even though Sydney have been unable to push through getting more wins during this period, they would ultimately take advantage of Newcastle’s failures.
Total goals over 2.5
Sydney might have been averaging 1.5 goals per game in the last six matches, but the team tends to concede plenty of goals. Up against a Newcastle outfit which has struggled for goals, Sydney might be in a good position. However, it is difficult to expect the visitors not take advantage of a Newcastle defence which has conceded 10 goals in the last six home games.
Both teams to score – yes
Sydney come into this match after having struggled with their defence for a long time. The recent derby against Western Sydney once again highlighted this issue. Apart from the clean sheet against Melbourne Victory, there has been no defence of joy for Sydney in the last five matches. Despite taking on one of the weaker opponents in the form of Newcastle, Sydney should present opportunities for the opposition to score.
Newcastle Jets vs Sydney: Match Preview
Melbourne City piled on the misery for Newcastle with a comfortable win in the recent match. Craig Deans has seen his team lose three out of the last five matches, while their winless run has stretched to 11 matches. The team has struggled home or away, but the home matches have been especially disappointing with just one win so far this season.
Sydney could be able to jump ahead of Central Coast Mariners with a victory over Newcastle. The advantage of playing earlier ahead of the primary rivals could help Sydney get motivated for this match. The team does need some kind of a motivation to stop falling further behind the chase for the second place. The return of just one victory in the last five matches has seen Sydney drop seven points behind Melbourne City.
