Newcastle Jets Prediction – Can Newcastle break out of slump?

A dismal and disappointing 5-match slump has resulted in Newcastle Jets dropping down to the bottom of the A-League ladder ahead of this important upcoming Friday night clash against the A-League leaders, Sydney FC.

Jets had previously registered back-to-back wins in the Australian top flight with victories gained over Western United (away) and Western Sydney Wanderers (at home) and everything seemed to be heading in the right direction for the Newcastle side, but they’ve since suffered an alarming dip in form.

4 defeats from their last 5 matches included losses to Adelaide United, Melbourne City, Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory and a total of 16 goals were conceded in these 4 defeats too, leaving the Jets owner, Lawrie McKinna no option but to part ways with manager, Ernie Merrick.

A straight win for Newcastle Jets therefore seems out of the question but 3 of Newcastle’s 5 home matches have seen both teams score.

Sydney FC Prediction – Can Sydney extend lead at top?

Well, given Newcastle Jets’s problems of late, there’s every chance that the Sydney-siders can grab all three points when they make the trip up north to the Central Coast to take on a floundering Newcastle outfit who have just sacked former manager, Ernie Merrick.

Sydney FC hold a commanding 9-point lead at the top of the A-League ahead of 2nd placed Melbourne City who have emerged as Sydney’s closest rivals for the preliminary league title, and the visitors bring a 9-match unbeaten run into this Friday night encounter.

Having won 8 of these last 9 matches overall, Sydney look set to take the honours here as they’ve powered past their opposition this season, losing just once throughout the campaign so far this term.

An away record of 3-1-1 10/6 also looks promising and includes wins at Adelaide United, Perth Glory and Western United, but they did lose to their Western Sydney counterparts in a 1-0 defeat earlier in the season.

3 of Sydney’s 5 away matches have also seen both teams score and they may not get the easy ride they’re expecting against the Jets as the hosts will be desperate to recover.


Key-Facts – Newcastle Jets vs Sydney FC

  • 3 of Newcastle’s 5 home matches have seen both teams score
  • 3 of Sydney’s 5 away matches have also seen both teams score
  • 6 of the last 9 meetings between these two sides have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

Whenever a manager leaves a club there’s usually a reaction and Jets will be hoping they can make life difficult for Sydney FC here.
