Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets Predictions 


Melbourne City have a dominant record at home and host bottom placed Newcastle. While the Jets have been competitive, their performances on the road has been poor. 

I’m tipping over 2.5 goals and City to win.

  • Melbourne City have seen over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne City have won 5 of their last 8 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne City have won 9 of their last 10 home matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have lost 5 of their last 8 away matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 7 matches against Melbourne City (A-League).

Head to Head


Melbourne City have a 17-13 advantage in the head-to-head with four draws in 34 encounters.

Their last meeting saw City cruise home to a 3-1 win at AAMI Park. Forwards Andrew Nabbout and Jamie Maclaren added to their respective tallies, while captain Scott Jamieson scored a rare goal.

Melbourne City Form


City created history when they clinched their inaugural premiership. 

A 1-0 win over Central Coast saw City lift silverware with Ex-Bolton winger Craig Noone scoring the decisive goal. The VAR came to City’s aid late as it ruled out a Mariners penalty in stoppage time. 

City would then suffer its first defeat in 10 matches as they went down 3-0 away to Brisbane. Having already won the premiership, City fielded an inexperienced side with several first-choice players rested.

Head coach Patrick Kisnorbo then named another young side to take on Melbourne Victory. The derby ended 1-1 with City taking the lead early after a Nick Ansell own goal, before the Victory equalised in stoppage time.

Melbourne City Injuries & Team News


City will be without star striker Jamie Maclaren and defender Curtis Good due to international duty. Defender Nathaniel Atkinson will also mis with a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Anthony Lesiotis will be in contention to start after impressing off the bench last week.

Newcastle Jets Form


Newcastle only need a point to avoid finishing bottom. 

The Jets travelled to Brisbane where a late goal undid all their hard work once again. Falling behind early, Newcastle got back on the board after Roar midfielder James O’Shea turned the ball in for an own goal.

Brisbane would ultimately find a late goal to sink the Jets 2-1 and inflict a fourth loss in five matches.

After 14 matches without a win the Jets finally tasted victory. Goals from striker Roy O’Donovan and midfielder Lucas Mauragis sealed a 2-0 over Central Coast.

A 1-1 draw against Perth followed, where the Jets came from behind to rescue a point. The Jets were rewarded for their dominance when Perth’s Jonathan Aspropotamitis scored an own goal in the 70th minute.

Newcastle Jets Injuries & Team News


Newcastle will be without midfielders Ben Kantarovski and John Koutroumbis due to calf and ankle injuries respectively.
