Melbourne City vs Central Coast Mariners: Predictions

Four of the last five Grand Finals have seen one or both teams not score and this could be a tight one here with goals hard to come by. Melbourne had the second best ranked defence with just 32 goals conceded this season while Central Coast Mariners only conceded three more.

Player markets also offer some value and the first player to be shown a card market has a worthy favourite and yet still appeals. Nectarios Triantis sounds like a Roman Gladiator and the statistics suggest he plays like one also. He has six yellow cards in his last nine appearances including in both legs of the semi-finals and the Central Coast Mariners man should be backed here.

Scoreline prediction: Melbourne City 1-0 Central Coast Mariners
