Melbourne City vs. Adelaide United
Friday, April 7 from 7.50 pm AEST, AAMI Park, Melbourne
The Victorian South Australian rivalry renews on Friday night as Melbourne City host Adelaide United at AAMI Park.
City is in dire need of a win after back-to-back losses against Sydney opponents. A loss on Friday night could rule them out of the top-four and a home final.
Despite going in as favourites, they face an Adelaide side which is full of confidence.
The Reds are in a rich vein of form to finish off the season. The reigning premiers are undefeated from their last four matches.
We are backing the class of the home side in here. They need to win and should be able to get the job done on Friday night
Melbourne City to win – $1.62
Wellington Phoenix vs. Sydney FC
Saturday, April 8 from 5.53 pm AEST, Westpac Stadium, Wellington, New Zealand
The top of the table Sky Blues travel across the Tasman to face the Phoenix in an interesting matchup at the cake tin.
The Phoenix cannot afford to drop any points coming into the latter stages of the season. The home side sit four points adrift of the sixth placed Glory with just two regular season games remaining.
Unfortunately they confront the all-conquering Sydney FC.
The Sky Blues have taken almost all before them this season, and will go over to New Zealand looking to end the season strongly.
We are backing the visitors to win at decent odds, ending the finals hopes of the Kiwis in the process.
Sydney FC to win – $1.88
Western Sydney Wanderers vs. Melbourne Victory
Saturday, April 8 from 5 pm AEST, ANZ Stadium, Sydney
The match of the round is on Saturday night as the Wanderers host the Victory at ANZ Stadium.
The Wanderers are looking to continue their sensational run of form which has seen them win their last three consecutive matches.
The Victory need to win after two disappointing losses. They get the perfect opportunity to bounce back against a side they have dominated in recent times.
The big V has won three straight games against WSW and we are backing them to keep the great run of form against their opponents rolling on Saturday night.
Melbourne Victory to win – $2.75
Central Coast Mariners vs. Newcastle Jets
Sunday, April 9 from 7 pm AEST, Central Coast Stadium, Gosford
The M1 Derby rounds out our A-League multi this weekend as the Mariners host the Jets on the central coast.
Both teams have just one point from their last five matches so the combatants will be desperate to restore some semblance of pride heading into the final fortnight of the season.
The one thing we can take out of the recent form is the Mariners are scoring while the Jets are not.
In their last three matches Newcastle has failed to find the back of the net while Central Coast has failed to score just once in their last five games.
Goals win matches – that is why we are backing the Mariners in. The men in canary yellow will be looking to finish the season off on a high note and should hand us a tasty dividend in the process.
Central Coast Mariners to win – $2.55
