Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets Predictions 


Newcastle Jets have been shy in front of goal this season. While Sydney have plenty of quality up front, they have not been regular goalscorers either. I’m tipping BTTS No and under 2.5 goals.

  • Sydney FC have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Sydney have seen BTTS No in 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle have seen BTTS No in 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Sydney FC have a 28-9 record against the Jets in the head-to-head with 10 draws in 47 matches. 

Newcastle picked up an upset win in their last meeting with the Sky Blues. Second half goals from forwards Nick Fitzgerald and Kosta Petratos helped the Jets onto a 2-1 win over the champions.

Sydney FC Form


Sydney FC have had a steady few weeks in the A-League. 

Following their 1-0 loss at home to Macarthur, the Sky Blues shared the points with Brisbane Roar in a 1-1 draw. 

Brazilian striker Bobo scored his first goal on return to equalise in the 71st minute and save Sydney from three consecutive losses. 

The side’s winless run would come to an end as they saw off Western United with a  2-0 win at home. Bobo slotted away a first half penalty before last year’s Grand Final hero Rhyan Grant tucked away Sydney’s second in the second half. 

The win did come at a cost with star midfielder Milos Ninkovic limping off after a late challenge from Western defender Tomislav Uskok.

Sydney FC Injuries & Team News


Former Serbian international Milos Ninkovic will miss the match after picking up an ankle injury in the win against Western United.

Newcastle Jets Form


After a five-match unbeaten run, the Jets have crashed back to earth with two straight losses. 

Newcastle’s last win came against Melbourne Victory, with midfielder Angus Thurgate’s 72nd minute strike securing the three points. 

Though their run would come to an end at the hands of Wellington in a 2-0 defeat at home, before going down 2-1 away to Adelaide United the following week.

The Jets have been quiet in front of goal in the last month, with the side only scoring twice in their last four matches.

Newcastle Jets Injuries & Team News


Utility Jason Hoffman is a chance to return after missing last week’s loss with a groin injury. Winger Ramy Najjarine is also in contention to be recalled after an ankle issue. 

Midfielder Ben Kantarovski is still another few weeks away as he recovers from a calf injury.
