A-League: Latest standings after Matchday 4

Four rounds into the 2023/24 A-League season and the title race is wide open with four teams all locked on eight points at the top of the ladder.

It is also very tight lower down the ladder and the battle to make the top six and play finals looks set to be a fierce one.

There have been some surprise results also with Melbourne City and Adelaide United suffering shock defeats that came out of the blue.

It is still very early days in the A-League, but let’s take a look at the latest standings now that Matchday 4 is completed.

Four teams undefeated

The top of the ladder has an unfamiliar look to it with Western Sydney Wanderers, Melbourne Victory, Wellington Phoenix and Macarthur FC making up the top four.

They are all undefeated when winning two and drawing two, sitting on eight points.

Western Sydney have arguably been the most impressive, scoring nine goals and conceding just two to sit at the top of the pile on goal-difference.

The Wanderers can be backed at 5.00 to stay there and win the minor premiership this season.

Melbourne Victory also look a different team this season and can be backed at 6.00 to be top of the ladder at the end of the regular campaign.

City search for consistency

Melbourne City’s crazy start to the season continued at the weekend as they fought out a thrilling 3-3 draw against Macarthur FC.

City were trailing 3-1 in the 90th minute but managed to fire home two dramatic late goals to earn a share of the points.

It leaves them down in ninth place on the ladder with just four points, but there is plenty of time for them to get their act together and they are still the hot fancies at 4.50 to win the grand final.

Adelaide United stunned by Sydney FC

Adelaide United started the season well with two wins and a draw before they came crashing back down to earth against a Sydney side that had lost all three.

After parting company with coach Steve Corica, Sydney appointed Ufuk Talay, and he started with a bang as his side hammered the Reds 5-1.

No-one would have seen that result coming and the Sky Blues will be hoping it can kick-start their season.

They can be backed at 9.00 to win the grand final, while Adelaide are 7.00.

Mariners on course for wooden spoon

It looks like being an almighty fall from grace for last season’s grand final winners, Central Coast Mariners, as they continue to struggle.

It is now four defeats on the bounce for the Mariners. The latest being a 2-1 home defeat against Brisbane Roar at the weekend.

They have scored just two goals and have conceded nine and unless there is a big turnaround, they could be set for the wooden spoon.

As things stand they are 6.50 to finish bottom of the ladder, with Newcastle Jets available at 4.50.

Perth Glory are 5.00 and Western United 5.50, but the Mariners are the only side not to pick up a point in the opening four games.
