The A-League action continues this week with another six games scheduled from Friday-Monday night. The SundayLeagueShark is our expert for all things soccer and he has you covered with a full preview and betting tips for some of his favourite matchups of the weekend below.
Friday 5th March, 7.35pm (AEDT)
Adelaide United has won their last two games on the trot and currently sit in 5th place on the table with a 4-1-4 record. They are coming off a solid win over the Western Sydney Wanderers which saw them put three goals in the back of the net for the second straight game.
The Jets sit in 10th place on the ladder and have a 3-2-5 record this season. They are five spots lower than Adelaide but could conceivably jump above them with a win on Friday night, highlighting the evenness of the A-League competition this season.
Adelaide have been in terrific scoring form over the last few weeks and the 14 goals allowed by Newcastle is one of the highest marks in the league. Back this one to be another high scoring affair with Adelaide United potentially getting the chocolates.
Saturday 6th March, 7.15pm (AEDT)
These two teams might not be in the best form to pen the A-League season but there will still be plenty of hype around the Melbourne Derby on Saturday night. The Victory come into the game in last place on the A-League ladder, having lost four of their last five games and coming off a disappointing loss to a Western United side that had 10 men for half an hour.
Melbourne City have been a touch more impressive this season, but still sit in 7th place on the tbale with just a 4-0-4 record. They have, however, won their last two games in a row over solid sides in Sydney FC and the Western Sydney Wanderers.
Round 3 of the 2011/12 season was the last time these teams met while both of them sat outside the top six, a testament to the dominance of the franchises over the history of the A-League. Melbourne City sit just two points behind 3rd place though, and have been a much more competitive side this year. Back them to win this one as favourites.
Sunday 7th March, 6.15pm (AEDT)
The Western Sydney Wanderers have lost their last two games on the trot and now sit in fourth place on the table with a 3-4-3 record through 10 games. They have scored 13 goals, allowed 13 goals and accrued 13 points this season. Western United sit all the way down in 8th place but could conceivably leapfrog the Wanderers with a win on Sunday.
These two teams have squared off just three times since Western United entered the league at the start of last season and interestingly, they are undefeated against the more established Wanderers side. They have won two and drawn one and have plundered eight goals in those three games.
In total, 13 goals have been scored in those three games and throughout the season so far, Westen United have been one of the highest scoring teams in the competition with 16 goals in just 7 games. They played a 4-3 game against Melbourne Victory last week and we expect this one to be another high scoring game.
