2021-22 A-League: Round 23 Preview & Betting Tips

April 13th 2022, 11:03pm, By: Josh Nevett

A-League Round 23

Just the four games will take place over the Eastern weekend as teams look to regroup before one last push to close out the season. Melbourne Victory and Western United are out to press their challenge for the minor premiership, while plenty of other sides are gunning for a coveted finals position.

Check out our ‘Matchday 23’ preview and A-League betting tips below.

A-League Round 23 Betting Tips

Macarthur vs Brisbane Roar

Friday 15th April, 7.45pm (AEDT)

Macarthur are still firmly entrenched in the finals race, while Brisbane have shown a slight uptick in form recently despite sitting down in 11th.

The Roar have 5 points in their last 3 matches, beating Newcastle while also managing a draw against the high-flying victory.

Brisbane will also be buoyed by their history against the Bulls, having won two of the three competitive fixtures against them including a win away from home.

Despite that, there is a lot more on the line for Macarthur, so they should be able to bank three points on home turf here.

Western United vs Perth Glory

Saturday 16th April, 5.05pm (AEDT)

Western United have stumbled in their pursuit of top spot, winning just one match of their last 5. 

Trailing Melbourne City by 8 points with 3 games in hand, the time is now for them to turn the results around.

Conveniently they face Perth this round, a team that has proved to be a basket case in 2021/22. 

Perth have lost 4 matches on the trot now, multiple by large margins, and there seems to be no end in sight in this nightmare.

United should win here, the question is by how much?

Wellington Phoenix vs Central Coast Mariners

Sunday 17th April, 1.05pm (AEDT)

These are two teams who have found form of late, each winning three of their last five fixtures.

However, Central Coast will enter this clash with far more confidence having destroyed Wellington 5-0 just over one week ago.

Wellington were missing some key names that night, however the bragging rights and mental advantage remain.

One factor on Wellington’s side is the venue – the Phoenix love playing at home and have won four of their last five against Central Coast at the venue.

I expect some redemption here, with Phoenix taking a win.
