Jets host Victory on Saturday night

Melbourne Victory and Newcastle Jets clash in a blockbuster Grand Final rematch in the pick of the A-League Round 3 matches coming up this weekend.

Newcastle are still hurting from last season’s Grand Final when yet another VAR controversy resulted in them falling 1-0 to Victory in front of their home fans - can Ernie Merrick’s side avenge that loss on Saturday night at McDonald Jones Stadium? Both sides are winless from their opening two games of the new season, with the Jets coming into this encounter on the back of a 1-1 draw with Adelaide, while Victory are yet to earn a point following consecutive defeats to City and Perth.

Round 3 kicks off with a top-of-the-table clash between Sydney FC and Melbourne City at AAMI Park on Friday night. Both teams have started the campaign in impressive fashion, with Sydney beating the Wanderers 2-0 last weekend and City scoring late to earn a point against the Mariners. The Sky Blues will also be playing just three days after contesting the FFA Cup final against Adelaide on Tuesday.

Wellington Phoenix look to extend their unbeaten start to the season in the first game on Saturday at Westpac Stadium against the Western Sydney Wanderers. With a win over Newcastle and a draw away to Brisbane, the Phoenix have surprised many already this season, while the Wanderers will be determined to bounce back from Saturday night’s VAR farce against Sydney in the derby.

The third game on Saturday night pits Perth Glory up against Brisbane Roar as both sides put their unbeaten starts on the line. Glory were superb in downing Victory 3-2 on Sunday, while Brisbane have drawn their opening two matches against the Mariners and Phoenix.

Speaking of unbeaten starts, both Adelaide and Central Coast have also drawn their opening two matches - who will emerge triumphant as the two teams conclude Round 3 action in Gosford on Sunday?
