Thursday November 5

Adelaide United V Melbourne City

Coopers Stadium, 7.30pm (local time)

Melbourne City coach John van't Schip will be absolutely fuming following his side's capitulation last Friday night when they squandered a 2-0 lead only to be over run by Newcastle to lose 3-2.

It's hard to say which City team will turn up this week, but luckily, they are coming up against an equally out of sorts Adelaide United, who went down 3-0 to Brisbane last week.

However, at home, United should prove too strong for City, who since their inception into the competition as Melbourne Heart have struggled to put teams away, let along win away from home.

Melbourne will welcome back Harry Novillo, who will add great creativity in the front third and former EPL defender Aaron Hughes, who should help sure up the backline.

Prediction: Adelaide 2 - 1 Melbourne City

Friday November 6

Sydney FC V Brisbane Roar

Allianz Stadium, 7.40pm

Both sides are coming off good wins, with Brisbane in particular impressing everyone and starting the season brilliantly under new coach John Aloisi.

Brandon Borello and Jamie McLaren are proving a brilliant combination up forward and will be hard to stop once again.

The last fixture between these two sides saw nine goals scored, with Sydney winning 5-4.

The Roar have scored in 10 of their last 11 visits to Sydney, scoring 10 goals in their previous three encounters.

Prediction: Sydney 2 - 3 Brisbane

Saturday November 7

Newcastle Jets V Western Sydney Wanderers

Hunter Stadium, 5.15pm

The Jets are third on the table and will be full of confidence after a brilliant comeback against Melbourne City last weekend.

The Wanderers recorded their first win of the campaign with a hard fought 1-0 win over Perth Glory.

Western Sydney have only won one of their last 16 away games.

The Jets are unbeaten in their last five meetings with the Wanderers.

Prediction: Newcastle 1 - 0 Western Sydney

Sunday November 8

Central Coast Mariners V Wellington Phoenix

Bluetongue Stadium, 5.00pm

Both sides are coming off losses and will be desperate for a win.

Central Coast have scored in their last 14 matches against the Phoenix, however, Wellington are unbeaten in the five meetings with the Mariners.

Wellington have lost just one of their last six away games in the A-League.

Prediction: Central Coast 0 - 2 Wellington
