Check out all our previews and predictions for round two of the 2015-16 A-League season.

Friday October 16

Adelaide United V Western Sydney Wanderers

Coopers Stadium, 7.10pm (local time)

Adelaide played out a 1-1 draw with Melbourne Victory, but the Victory were arguably the better side of the two for most of the match. The Reds will be hoping for a slightly improved performance this week as they return to the familiar surroundings of Coopers Stadium.

They have suffered a blow with goal keeper and captain Euegen Galekovic ruled out for six weeks, however, youngster John Hall has been impressive in goals.

The Wanderers made some poor defensive errors last week against the Roar, but after a big turn over of players in off-season, the players will likely take a while to gel and they will be better for the run.

Adelaide should get all three points at home, with a more settled team.

Prediction: Adelaide 2- 0  Western Sydney

Saturday October 17

Newcastle Jets V Sydney FC

Hunter Stadium, 5.15pm

Newcastle surprised everyone last week with an impressive 2-1 win over Wellington. The Jets will have their work cut out this week though against a Sydney FC side that could have easily walked away with all three points last week against Melbourne City, had it not been for City's keeper Thomas Sorensen.

Sydney have a great record at Hunter Stadium and the Sky Blues are on the verge on breaking an A-League record for most unbeaten games away from home.

The Jets are winless in their last seven A-League matches against the Sky Blues.

The Jets have worked hard to put the tumultuous off-season and 2014-15 season behind them, but even with a new coach and several impressive new signings, it's hard to see them going past last year's Grand Finalists.

Prediction: Sydney FC 2- 1 Newcastle Jets

Melbourne Victory V Melbourne City

Etihad Stadium, 7.30pm

The hotly anticipated Melbourne derby is set up to be one of the most competitive yet.

Melbourne Victory have had the wood over their cross town rivals in recent years, however, with City making several big name signings in the off-season, the hype around the club is at its highest since the club's inception into the league.

Both sides were forced to settle for one all draws last weekend, but with the passion and emotion that is the Melbourne derby is sure to produce a result. The Victory welcome back new captain Carl Valeri, who should prove an important inclusion in the midfield. Leigh Broxham is out with a one game suspension.

Victory have only lost once to their cross town rivals at home.

Prediction: Victory 3- 1 City

Sunday October 18

Brisbane Roar V Central Coast Mariners

Suncorp Stadium, 4pm

Both sides recorded impressive wins last week, despite most pundits predicting a difficult year for both clubs. The Mariners will be keen to change their recent poor away record, with the club currently on the worst ever away record in A-League history.

Strangely, Brisbane has lost six of their last seven A-League game son a Sunday.

Prediction: Brisbane 1- 0  Central Coast

Perth Glory V Wellington Phoenix

NIB Stadium, 4pm

Both sides are coming off losses and would love a win to kick start their 2015-16 campaigns. Neither of these two sides have kept a clean sheet in their last seven encounters in the league, so expect a high scoring affair.

The Glory have scored in 16 of their last 17 home games in the A-League.

Perth was lackluster last week against Central and Kenny will ensure his side is up for the first home of the season.

Prediction: Perth 3-2 Central Coast
