Sydney FC vs Central Coast Mariners Predictions 


Sydney FC have seen under 2.5 goals in six of their last eight A-League matches. They meet a Mariners outfit who have seen BTTS No in their opening three matches. I'm tipping under 2.5 goals with BTTS No.

  • Sydney FC have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 12 matches (all competitions). 
  • Central Coast have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Central Coast have seen BTTS No in their last 3 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


These two sides have met 49 times with Sydney FC holding a 25-14 record, with 10 draws played.

The Sky Blues recorded a comprehensive 3-0 win the last time these two sides met. Serbian midfielder Milos Ninkovic opened the scoring in the eighth minute, before youth products Marco Tilio and Harry Van der Saag scored respective stoppage time goals.

Sydney FC Form


Sydney FC came into the season following a 4-0 win over Shanghai SIPG and a 1-1 draw with Yokohama F Marinos in the AFC Champions League. 

The Sky Blues have built on this and have started the new A-League campaign unbeaten in their first two. 

Sydney opened their season with a 2-1 against Wellington. Debutant Calem Nieuwenhof opened the scoring with a long-ranged strike and Luke Brattan then sealed the win with an equally impressive set-piece goal. 

Their most recent match saw the Sky Blues draw 1-1 with Western Sydney in the derby. Kosta Barbarouses drew first blood from the penalty spot, before the Wanderers equalised five minutes later.

Brazilian striker Bobo could be set to make his long-awaited return for Sydney. 

Bobo scored 52 goals in 71 appearances and signed with the Sky Blues in early January after spending two seasons abroad.

The Sky blues otherwise come in with a fully fit squad.

Central Coast Mariners Form


After claiming last season’s wooden spoon, the Central Coast Mariners have enjoyed a successful start to the new season. 

An opening round 1-0 win against the Newcastle Jets was followed by a 2-0 win away to Macarthur. Daniel De Silva opened the scoring against the Bulls in the 35th minute, before substitute Jordan Smylie smashed home the winner from close range in stoppage time. 

This perfect start came to an end in their last match against the Western Sydney Wanderers. Despite creating several chances, the Mariners went down 1-0 at home.

Central Coast Mariners Injuries & Team News


Costa Rican international Marco Urena made his debut for the club off the bench in the loss against the Wanderers.

Serbian midfielder Stefan Jankovic and Polish winger Michal Janota are in contention to debut against the Sky Blues after the pair completed their two-week quarantine.
