Newcastle Jets vs Perth Glory by Jumanjiyo
I would like to start with the visitors. Perth Glory did not look ready at all last week against Western Sydney Wanderers. They were lucky to go to half time 2-0 behind. It could easily be 5-0 half time. The teams length has gone upto 60-70 meters at times where all turnovers in the second and third zone came back as danger in their goal to them. We also have to give credit to WSW , being so well prepared for the first game of the season. In the second half Perth played just a bit better and they have one goal and they hit the post 2 times. Perth`s offensive talent is one of the top in the league and their way of play creates goals as we have seen in the previous seasons. Diego Castro, Taggart and Keogh will create chances also in this game.
Looking at the opponent, Newcastle Jets, they made fantastic moves this year starting with their new coach, Ernie Merrick who has a a-league title under his belt . Also Dimitri Petratos, Roy O'Donovan, Daniel Georgievski will help this exciting team to make it to playoffs in my opinion. Having said that , I expect Nabbout to continue contributing on the offensive end. The 5-1 victory last week, is not one of the reasons of my bet. It is the way the team play.
I predict Perth Glory will get better in this game and play more like a team and they will produce much more chances than they did last week. On the other hand , Newcastle Jets will also aim to win this game and start the game jumping on Perth Glory.
The last 4 meetings of these 2 clubs ended as 3-2 , 2-2, 1-2 , 1-2.
Once again on Sunday, I predict both teams to score and over 2,5 goals
