Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory Prediction & Betting Tips - A-League

 by Steve Ashfield | in Football Predictions

Central Coast Mariners face Melbourne Victory in the A-League Grand Final. The Mariners won the 2023 final and also topped this season's main A-League with their opponents in third. They have home advantage in this final and that may well be a deciding factor. Central Coast are also in good form and another Grand Final victory is definitely a possibility this weekend. Melbourne Victory will be hoping to cause an upset but their away record is a big problem for them.

Central Coast Mariners - Melbourne Victory: Form Analysis

Central Coast Mariners finished the regular A-League season top of the table. They finished two points clear of Wellington Phoenix but it's not the top two that are meeting in this final. The Mariners went straight into the play-off semi-finals and took on Sydney FC coming from behind to win the away first leg 2-1. The return match ended in a goalless draw and took the Mariners into the final for the fourth successive year. May has already been a good month for them with the AFC Cup being won. They are now unbeaten in their last seven A-League fixtures and ten in all competitions. Home form has been strong this season with nine wins out of 14 in the regular season. The last three home league and cup games has seen them keep a clean sheet. They are unbeaten in their last three matches against Melbourne Victory.

The away side are the outsiders in this Grand Final. They finished in third place in the regular season and 13 points behind the Mariners. 12 of their league games ended in a draw and eight of those came on the road. Unlike their opponents, Victory had to play in the play-off quarter-finals. That saw them take on Melbourne City at home and they went behind in the first half. It took an 88th minute equalizer to keep them alive and they eventually won on penalties. The semi-finals saw them defeat Wellington Phoenix away from home and they looked to be winning the match in regular time. They were 1-0 up but the home side leveled the scores in the 99th minute. Melbourne eventually won the game 2-1 after extra time. Over 90 minutes, they have gone six games without a win. A victory for Central Coast Mariners is our tip for this match.

Central Coast Mariners & Melbourne Victory Squad Analysis

Don't expect too many changes from either team here as both managers will want to stick with what has gotten them to this stage. The only two absences for Mariners' boss Mark Jackson are defender Noah Smith and Colombian winger Angel Torres, the latter of which could be facing some serious off the field charges. Torres is a big miss for the hosts as he is Central Coast's leading scorer this season with 15 goals in 33 appearances.

Melbourne Victory manager Tony Popovic doesn't have any injury concerns ahead of the final. Melbourne have been powered this season by the goals of striker Bruno Fornaroli, who has an impressive strike rate of 18 goals in 24 appearances. The Mariners will have to keep a keen eye on the experienced number 10 if they are to repeat as champions.
