Sydney vs Central Coast Mariners Lineups & Team News


Coach Steve Corica’s boys’ last game ended in defeat. It was a remarkable A-League semi-final game on the 19th of May between Melbourne City and Sydney. However, the visitors at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium got defeated badly. The result on the scoreboard after 90 minutes of football showed 4-0 in favor of Jamie Maclaren and his teammates, which is definitely not something we should see on the 13th of August.

Predicted lineup – Redmayne (GK), King, Rodwell, Wilkinson, Grant, Bratan, Retre, Segecic, Burgess, Caceres & le Fondre

Central Coast Mariners

The Mariners had a season to remember. They were behind Melbourne City in the A-League charts all season long. However, Central Coast were decisive when it mattered most. They crushed Hearts 1-6 on the 3rd of June, leaving Melbourne City in tears.

Predicted lineup – Vukovic (GK), McGarry, Kaltack, Triantis, Roux, Silvera, Nisbet, Balard, N’Kololo, Cummings & M. T

Player to Watch: Jason Cummings

Central Coast Mariners’ Jason Cummings couldn’t poach the top goalscorer award away from Melbourne City’s Jamie Maclaren, but in the end, it didn’t really matter, as it was his team that emerged victoriously in A-League’s grand final. Jason’s contribution was truly astonishing, as he bagged a hat-trick in the last game of the season. Jason is definitely the sort of player that can make a difference, so that’s why we have him down as the player to watch in this professional Sydney vs Central Coast Mariners prediction.
