A-League 2019/20- Round 7 My Preview
The opening 6 Rounds of the A-League were good to watch due to the fact that there has been just 3 game with a margin of more than 1 goal separating the 2 teams, which is a remarkable fact. The 5 games in Round 7 should be entertaining!
Team with Round 7 Bye: Newcastle Jets
My Choice of a definite winner for this Round: Melbourne City
Friday Night Game
Western Sydney Wanderers v Melbourne City
The Western Sydney Wanderers should be fresh, having had the bye in Round 6, while Melbourne City played on Sunday so I expect them to have the momentum, despite losing that game 4-3 to Brisbane Roar. Can anyone stop the unbelievable goal scoring form of Jamie Maclaren? I don’t think so, also, I don’t believe that the Western Sydney Wanderers have enough scoring options.
Western Sydney Wanderers Game Changer: Keanu Baccus
Melbourne City Game Changer: Jamie Maclaren
My Prediction: Melbourne City
Saturday Night Game (Wellington Time)
Wellington Phoenix v Brisbane Roar
Wellington Phoenix are in need of a win as they have just 1 point from 5 games this A-League Season. The Brisbane Roar may have won 4-3 last Sunday, but I expect the comeback to have fatigued them as it was a tough game against Melbourne City. Wellington Phoenix will be hungry for their 1st win of the Season.
Wellington Phoenix Game Changer: Alex Rufer
Brisbane Roar Game Changer: Roy O’Donovan
My Prediction: Wellington Phoenix
Saturday Night Games
Adelaide United v Melbourne Victory
It’s Marco Kurz coaching against the team that he coached for 2 years as well. Melbourne Victory need a win to stay in touch with the top 6.
Adelaide United Game Changer: Ryan Strain
Melbourne Victory Game Changer: Elvis Kamsoba
My Prediction: Melbourne Victory
Perth Glory v Sydney FC
I expect Sydney FC to be difficult to beat in this one as they have been in good form sitting 2nd on the A-League ladder.
Perth Glory Game Changer: Neil Kilkenny
Sydney FC Game Changer: Andrew Redmayne
My Prediction: Sydney FC
Sunday Night Game
Central Coast Mariners v Western United
The Central Coast Mariners sit 2nd from bottom on the A-League ladder as it stands, which means that they are in need of the 3 points. Western United sit in 4th place on the A-League ladder, which is a good effort considering that it’s their 1st Season in the A-League, but I expect the Mariners to be hungry to rebound from the 3-1 loss they suffered against Adelaide and win at home.
Central Coast Mariners Game Changer: Tommy Oar
Western United Game Changer: Josh Risdon
My Prediction: Central Coast Mariners
