Newcastle Jets vs Macarthur Predictions 

Despite two losses to the start the season, Newcastle remain a tough team to beat at home and have shown they are capable of scoring. They face a Macarthur side who saw BTTS last week and are also without a win in their last two matches. 

I'm tipping BTTS with this one ending in a draw.

  • Newcastle have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 7 home matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle are unbeaten in 8 of their last 9 home matches (A-League).
  • Macarthur have not won in their last 2 matches (A-League).

Head to Head

This will be the first-ever meeting between these two sides.

Newcastle Jets Form

Newcastle have started the season with consecutive losses after a strong finish to last season. 

While their opening match of the season ended in a 1-0 defeat away to the Central Coast Mariners, the Jets created several chances – finishing the game with an xG of 1.3.

Newcastle went down 2-1 to the Western Sydney Wanderers in their next match, ending an eight-match unbeaten run at home. 

The Wanderers jumped out to a two-goal lead before Jets captain Nigel Boogard pulled one back in the 73rd minute, but ultimately fail to spark a comeback.

Newcastle Jets Injuries & Team News

Jason Hoffman is in contention to return from a leg injury after missing last week’s loss. 

Midfielders Ben Kantarovski and John Koutroumbis will miss this week with respective calf and ankle injuries.

Macarthur Form

Macarthur have enjoyed a steady start to their inaugural A-League campaign. 

A captain’s goal from Mark Milligan guided the Bulls to a historic win away to the Wanderers in the opening round. Although this was short-lived as Macarthur went down to Central Coast 2-0 the following week at home. 

Their most recent match ended all-square in a 1-1 draw with the Wellington Phoenix. Former Athletic Bilbao midfielder Markel Susaeta scored his first goal for the club, while fellow Basque midfielder Benat Etxebarria made his first start.

Macarthur Injuries & Team News

Macarthur come into this match injury free for the third straight week.

Former Millwall defender James Meredith is a chance to return after he was left out of last week’s squad. 

Tommy Oar made his club debut off the bench last week and could be in line to make his first start this week.
