◾️Newcastle Jets made the last part of the season excellent. The arrival of Welshman Carl Robinson, in place of Craig Deans, brought in a great series for the Jets.
◾️There were 5 non-stop games for the Jets, including 3 wins, the series ended in the previous round, when Robinson’s team lost to Brisbane Roar (0-1).

Football Prediction of the Day Newcastle Jets vs Melbourne City FC
I think we will have a game with many goals, as were the matches between the two teams in general.
In addition, in recent times, both the Jets and Melbourne City have had spectacular matches.
There are two teams that have modest defenses. The Newcastle Jets have scored 38 goals so far, the third weakest defense of the championship, while Melbourne has conceded 32 goals, the 5th worst.
Under these conditions, I do not think we risk too much if we bet on a very successful match. If only 3 goals are given, the stake is returned.
Bet Tips: Over 3 goals Asian
