We take a look at Friday nights (4/01/2019) A-League 2019 Round 11 match which is between Sydney FC and Central Coast Mariners. Sydney FC go in as the very short favourites to win at home and they look almost unbeatable when comparing the two teams recent form.
When: Fri 4 Jan at 7:50PM
Where: Jubilee Stadium

The Graham Arnold derby is not the most exciting way to kick off the round of football with the Sky Blues expected to make short work of the Mariners.
Perhaps it will be seen as a win for Central Coast if the posts can stay in one piece after their New Years Eve debacle against Perth.
A 1 goal handicap is just on the edge of an enticing play but it is a line call if the value is truly there… then you remember just how bad the Mariners have been this season.
