Foot Predictions shows the Australian A-League clash on Friday between Adelaide United and Newcastle Jets, including hunches, betting tips and possible lineups.
Adelaide United will attempt to record its third consecutive victory when it hosts Newcastle Jets at Coopers Stadium on Friday.
Adelaide comes from tight wins over Western Sydney Wanderers and Central Coast Mariners, and is ready to continue its march up the A-League ladder.
The Reds moved up to fifth place in the table after an exciting 3-2 result against Wanderers.
After a difficult period of three consecutive defeats, the South Australian team overcame the situation in the last two matches.
The objectives of the new subscription Craig Goodwin have been crucial, along with the shape of a teenager Mohamed Touré, which at just 16 was a breath of fresh air for Adelaide.
Newcastle’s last game was a disappointing 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Wellington Phoenix, when the weak Jets never won and rarely threatened Wellington’s goal.
Trainer Craig Deans will seek to inspire his men as they head south for this confrontation.
Newcastle have lost just one of their last six matches and are currently in tenth place in the standings.
Hunter’s outfit relied heavily on the goals of Valentino Yuel in 2020-21, with the striker scoring four, half of the club’s total in the season.
Yuel, along with midfield pair Steven Ugarkovic and Ramy Najjarine, are the keys to the Jets’ chances of success.
Adelaide and Newcastle have yet to meet this season and last met in March 2020, when the Jets won a comfortable 3-0 victory.
However, historically, Newcastle has a poor record against the Reds, with a lone victory in their last five games.
