Newcastle Jets get their 2019/20 A-League campaign underway this weekend after a first round bye, taking on rivals Central Coast Mariners in an F3 derby on Saturday night.

The Jets will be hoping to improve on last year’s seventh-placed finish after making the Grand Final the previous season, and they will be confident of overcoming the Mariners in Gosford after Central Coast lost their opening game of the season 2-1 to the Wanderers.

Round 2 kicks off at Marvel Stadium as Melbourne Victory play host to Western Sydney Wanderers on Friday night. Western Sydney will be looking to make it two wins from two after defeating the Mariners in Round 1, while Victory will be out to get their first win following a dour 0-0 stalemate with Melbourne City.

Western United scored their first A-League win on Sunday when they conquered Wellington 1-0 across the ditch, but they should find the going much tougher in the first game on Saturday when they face last season’s minor premiers Perth Glory, with Tony Popovic’s side searching for their first win of the season after drawing 1-1 with Brisbane on Sunday night.

Melbourne City and Adelaide United each target their first win of the campaign after drawing 0-0 with Victory and losing 2-3 to Sydney FC respectively in Round 1 when the two sides clash in the first game on Sunday at AAMI Park, while Sydney will be aiming to make it two wins from two when they play host to Wellington later on Sunday night.

Brisbane Roar have the bye this weekend.
