The Melbourne Heart will need to bounce back from their last start defeat at the hands of the QLD Roar if they are to have any chance of making the A-league finals this season. They currently sit 2 points behind the Phoenix and have already played one more game than them.
The Central Coast Mariners are sitting pretty in 2nd place on the ladder, with a win in this match all but sealing that spot. In their last 5 matches they have won 3 times and had 2 draws.
The Heart have had a relatively decent campaign in their first season of the competition but I think their finals aspirations will fall short with a draw on Friday the 4th February in round 26 of the A-league.
Heart vs Mariners Betting Odds
Melbrourne Heart: $2.90
Central Coast Mariners: $2.40
There’s a lot on the line here for the Heart and even though they were beat last start by the rampaging Roar, they are in pretty good form of late. That being said, they run into the 2nd top team who have proved they are more than difficult to handle. These two teams have met twice so far this season with each team having a win apiece.
The Heart are at home and will do everything within their power to come away with the three points and keep their finals hopes alive, but the Mariners aren’t simply going to give it to them. The fact of the matter is that the Mariners have been the far superior team all season and I can’t see them losing this match.
