Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets Preview & Prediction

Newcastle Jets have an excellent chance to avoid the dreaded wooden spoon when they meet Melbourne City in a game postponed from a couple of weeks ago.

This clash will be played behind closed doors at Jubilee Stadium and we think the Jets are tremendous value to register the upset here.

City were the undisputed best team of the regular season and deservedly finished first with the minor premiership.

However, City are likely to rest a bunch of players having already earned the opening weekend of the A-League finals off.

Additionally, City are without Jamie Maclaren, who was responsible for almost half of their goals this season.

Newcastle have improved over the last month or so and are unbeaten in three of their last five games, drawing with an in-form Sydney FC and Perth Glory and conquering rivals Central Coast 2-0 in Gosford.

The Jets have plenty to play for, with a draw enough for the club to rise above Melbourne Victory on the ladder.

VERDICT:

There’s absolutely no value in backing what is likely to be a depleted Melbourne City side, but we can find some great odds for the Jets to win at $4.50 with TAB.

Newcastle have won two of the last three meetings between the teams and will be determined to avoid the spoon. Also worth noting City definitely wouldn’t mind seeing their cross-town rivals Victory fall back into last place!
