Central Coast Mariners win

Macarthur were certainly jittery ahead of their final regular-season game and a collapse against Wellington Phoenix might have dealt a significant blow to the team’s confidence levels. Central Coast Mariners have a psychological advantage after having secured a win in all the head-to-head meetings against this club.

Both teams to score – yes

Macarthur have a lot of confidence going forward even if they did not score against Wellington Phoenix. The form of Matt Derbyshire has been excellent throughout the campaign and he will be a key man for Macarthur without any doubt. Central Coast are quite strong when it comes to scoring goals at home with the team only failing to score in two of their last nine matches at this ground.

Total goals over 2.5

The offensive form of Central Coast will be the biggest strength Alen Stajcic’s team possess – especially in a home match. Alen Stajcic’s team will look to take advantage of Macarthur being without a clean sheet in six matches. The visitors, though, also possess the ability to score goals on the counter thanks to the immense pace of players like Derbyshire.

Central Coast Mariners vs Macarthur: A-League Match Preview

Central Coast Mariners

Central Coast Mariners have had momentum coming into the elimination finals and this will give home advantage in the game against Macarthur. After having scored 19 goals in the 13 home matches during the regular campaign, Central Coast have every reason to be confident. Furthermore, they have a 100% winning record against Macarthur.

Macarthur

After having come close to securing a fourth or fifth place in the regular-season table, Macarthur will be disappointed at losing to Wellington Phoenix in the final regular-season match and dropping down to 6th. The momentum has certainly slipped away from Macarthur even if Ante Milicic’s team might have good reasons to have done well against Wellington.
