Newcastle Jets vs Melbourne Victory Lineups & Team News

Newcastle Jets

The Jets’ 2023/24 A-League tally consists of four victories, four draws, and seven matches lost. This is not how you become an A-League champion, and coach Stanton knows it. If he wants to prove our Newcastle Jets vs Melbourne Victory predictions wrong, he’ll have to make some changes.

Predicted lineup – Scott (GK), Ingham, Grimaldi, Natta, Mauragis, Stynes, Grozos, O’Neill, Willmering, Timmins & Stamatelopoulos

Melbourne Victory

Coach Anthony Popovic did wonders with this team. Since the start of the campaign, the Boys in Blue took part in 14 league games. Surprisingly, they avoided defeat every single time. This is very good news for the team’s fans, as Melbourne Victory are certainly looking like title contenders right now.

Predicted lineup – Izzo (GK), Geria, Da Silva, Roderick, Traore, Brimmer, Teague, Arzani, Machach, Folami & Velupillay

Player to Watch: Zinedine Machach

Seeing as chief goalscorer Bruno Fornaroli is engaged with high-intensity international football for Australia during the AFC Asian Cup, we have Zinedine Machach as the player to watch in our Newcastle Jets vs Melbourne Victory predictions.

Zinedine Machach is the 2nd-best finisher at Popovic’s disposal, as he scored five times. Sure, he’s still seven goals short of reaching Fornaroli, but what Machach lacks in goals, he makes up with assists. Zinedine supplied teammates with three of those this season.
