Adelaide United vs Newcastle Jets Prediction and Betting Preview, 15 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-3
The respective ladder positions bely the recent form line as a resurgent Newcastle Jets head to an Adelaide United side in free-fall on Sunday.
Match status: 2019-20 A-League - Matchweek 23
Kick-off:
Venue: Coopers Stadium (Adelaide)
The Jets may be three places and nine points behind Gertjan Verbeek’s men but haven’t tasted defeat since a narrow 2-1 loss to Wellington Phoenix on January 24.

That’s a run of five games unbeaten – two wins and one draw – either side of new coach Carl Robinson’s arrival.

With new signings Bernie Ibini and Joe Ledley having extra time to settle in after last weekend’s bye, there is growing optimism in the Hunter the Jets could make a late charge for the finals.

In contrast, the Reds are now looking up at the top six after their embarrassing 5-1 loss at home against Western United in Round 22.
That loss is the low point of a run of four defeats in five games and they need to stop the rot immediately if they want to keep in the Finals Series hunt.

A win over the Jets would be a good start but another loss and there will need to be some serious soul searching in the City of Churches.

Adelaide United vs Newcastle Jets Team News

Adelaide United look to extend their unbeaten run over Newcastle Jets to seven matches when the two sides clash to close out A-League Round 23 on Sunday.

The hosts are undefeated in their last six Hyundai A-League matches against the Newcastle Jets (W4, D2). The Reds have won each of their last two meetings and will thus be aiming for three successive victories for the first time against the Jets.

The Jets are winless in their last six Hyundai A-League games away from home (D1, L5), conceding an average of three goals per game in that span.

There has been a total of 13 goals scored in Adelaide’s last two Hyundai A-League games played on a Sunday, the Reds picking up a 4-3 win and a 5-1 loss against Western United FC in those games.

They may be nine points ahead of Newcastle on the ladder, but Adelaide are very much underdogs in my eyes for this encounter.

It’s been a horror last month or so for the Reds – they’ve lost four of their last five matches and have slipped to seventh spot on the ladder as a result.

Adelaide head into this showdown on the back of an embarrassing 5-1 defeat at home to Western United last week and are scrambling to recapture their best form before it’s too late.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are making a late charge for the finals, although they may have left their run a little too late with just six games remaining and trailing sixth spot by nine points.

In saying that, the Jets are unbeaten in their last five games and are thriving under the tutelage of new coach Carl Robinson, who has bolstered the squad with the arrivals of Bernie Ibini and Joe Ledley.

Newcastle’s last match resulted in a brilliant 2-1 win over Perth before last week’s bye. With Adelaide in dire form, the Jets have a fantastic chance to keep their faint finals hopes alive on Sunday.

Adelaide United vs Newcastle Jets Predictions

Adelaide United may be ahead of Newcastle Jets in terms of standings, but their recent form is horrendous. They were defeated in four out of the last five A-League clashes and conceded 14 goals! Western United humiliated this squad in front of the home fans last weekend, winning the match 5-1.

Newcastle Jets have so much room for improvement. This team is now undefeated for five matches in a row, having won two against Central Coast Mariners and Perth Glory. They have kept only one clean sheet though.

As such, count on both sides to find the back of the net before the end of the ninety minutes with Newcastle Jets salvaging an important draw in the process.
