We take a look at Friday nights (22/2/2019) A-League 2019 match which is between Central Coast Mariners and Brisbane Roar. The two teams look pretty even on paper and the market has them that way.
When: Friday 22nd February, 7:50pm
Where: Central Coast Stadium
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
It’s last hosting second last on the Central Coast to kick off Round 20 of the A-League.
For these two teams the focus for their final eight matches is to avoid the dreaded wooden spoon.
Brisbane has never claimed that dubious honour and the Mariners are looking to avoid their second straight and third in the last four seasons.
These sides have played out 1-1 draws when they faced off in Round 1 and Round 14 and another result like that is certainly on the cards here.
It’s hard to back either of these sides to pick up a win here considering they have combined for 25 losses from 38 games played this season so I’m going to steer clear of the head to head market.
