A-League: Mariners facing tricky Bulls test

Sunday looks like being an exciting day in the A-League, with Central Coast Mariners travelling to Macarthur FC and Sydney FC entertaining Brisbane Roar.

The Mariners sit in second spot on the ladder and need the three points to stay in touch with ladder-leaders Wellington Phoenix.

Macarthur are in third spot, but there is a five-point gap between the two teams, something the home side will be looking to close.

There is also plenty at stake in the second game of the day.

Sydney are in fifth spot, but have work to do to cement their place, while Brisbane are seventh and need wins to take them into the top six.

They are two cracking games to wrap up the weekend and plenty of goals could also be on the agenda.

Bulls out to cut the gap

What: Macarthur FC v Central Coast Mariners
Where: Campbelltown Sports Stadium, NSW
When: 17:00 (AEDT), Sunday 10th March 2024
How to watch: Paramount+
Odds: Macarthur FC 3.10, Draw 3.50, Central Coast Mariners 2.25

Macarthur have won three of the past five games to keep them in touch with the top two, and they could do with another victory here.

They beat Melbourne City at Campbelltown Stadium last weekend with Bernando Oliveira grabbing both goals in a 2-0 win.

Oliveira will be hoping to be among the goals again and is a big price at 4.50 to score at anytime during the game.

The Bulls are solid at home this season, losing just two games, but the Mariners have been on fire when winning five away games.

Central Coast have also won their last three games - two of which have been on the road.

There will be two fine goalscorers in action on Sunday in the form of Valere Germain for the Bulls, and Angel Torres for the Mariners.

Germain is 7.00 to score the first goal of the game, while Torres is 7.50.

The two sides did meet at Campbelltown in the AFC Champions League last month, with the Mariners running out 3-2 winners.

Over 2.5 goals in Sunday’s game can be backed at 1.60, while both teams to score is 1.50.

Sydney hitting form for Roar visit

What: Sydney FC v Brisbane Roar
Where: Allianz Stadium, Sydney
When: 17:00 (AEDT), Sunday 10th March 2024
How to watch: Paramount+, 10Bold
Odds: Sydney FC 1.55, Draw 5.00, Brisbane Roar 4.75

Sydney FC are finding their form at a good time and are undefeated in the last seven games, winning four of them.

They saw off Western Sydney Wanderers in fine style last week, winning the game 4-1, and are a formidable outfit at the Allianz Stadium.

Sydney have been sharing the goals around, with striker Fabio Gomes scoring nine, while midfielder Joe Lolley is just one behind with eight.

Lolley can be backed at 6.50 to score the first goal of the game.

Brisbane Roar caught the eye last weekend when beating Melbourne Victory 3-2, while a few weeks earlier they smashed Melbourne City 5-1.

Sydney won the match at Suncorp 2-1 back in January and Roar will be out to turn the tables.

A 2-1 win for Roar on Sunday can be backed at 15.00.
