Newcastle Jets vs Adelaide United: prediction for the A-League Week 22

A clash near the bottom during the ongoing A-League season!

A New South Wales derby will happen on Friday, as Adelaide United will visit Newcastle Jets in the current A-League season. The starting whistle will blow on March 15, at 9:45 AM CET.

Newcastle Jets

After winning the A-League championship in 2008, Newcastle Jets made the playoffs twice, finishing second a decade later. This campaign is no different from a squad from New South Wales, as the Jets are stuck near the bottom, eight points away from the coveted postseason spot.

With only four wins in 21 games, it is a minor miracle that a squad from Newcastle is not sitting last. However, with six games left in the regular season, there is still a chance for both outcomes, as the Jets will try and turn the tide in their favor.

Adelaide United

One of the most successful A-League teams, two-time champions from Adelaide United have unexpectedly plummeted this season, as the Reds are sitting eleventh, right below their upcoming opponents.

While scoring more than the teams near the top of the standings, Adelaide United lost four games in a row, falling nine points behind the playoffs spot. While not insurmountable, it is hard to believe that United can get enough traction in seven remaining games, but if there is a beginning, it should start on Friday.

Prediction ⚽️

Adelaide United were dominant in the first round, only letting their guard down in the extra time to win β€œ3-1”, but this time they will travel 1500 kilometers to the east to Newcastle.

Sportsbooks prefer the hosts, as the visitors have lost four games in a row, but we will side with Adelaide United stopping that losing streak with 1.62 odds πŸ”₯.
