Competition: League A
Market: Both teams score
Chances: 7/10 @ 888sport
In a game that could really turn out to be another heated meeting on Wednesday morning, the Central Coast Mariners will host Brisbane Roar midweek.
Starting with the hosts, while the Central Coast Mariners may have shocked almost everyone across the A-League after their excellent start to the 2021 campaign, they struggled to maintain that momentum. Although the Gosford-based side may still be within striking distance of leaders Melbourne City, Alen Stajcic’s side were last seen ominously throwing the lead away. Despite a 2-0 lead over former champions Sydney, the Mariners ultimately had to settle for a point at home and they have now recorded just one win in one of their last seven attempts, a race that dates back to March 8. It’s also worth pointing out that, with each of their last four consecutive home games, seven of Central Coast’s previous eight A-League home games have ended with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, managing to make what has been a very welcomed return to victory over the past fortnight, there’s no doubt Brisbane will be desperate to keep that momentum going midweek. Managing to collect 12 points in their first five A-League games in the opening of the 2021 campaign, the Oranges have rebounded from their long blip since then. Last seen scoring 2-1 back-to-back wins over Macarthur and the Western Sydney Wanderers, head coach Warren Moon has a final spot high on his agenda this time around. Collecting seven points in their last three road clashes, the former champions could sense a chance to cause an upheaval this week. It’s worth pointing out that with each of Brisbane’s last four A-League clashes ending with both teams finding the net at the final whistle, we are backing a similar result on Wednesday morning.
Bet: Both teams will score at Central Coast Mariners vs Brisbane Roar 7/10 for Wednesday’s A-League contest @ 888sport
