Cloudbet's Soccer Six Bringing the Best from Australia's Top Flight

Central Coast Mariners v Melbourne City (Friday 6:30 GMT)

Melbourne City travel to Gosford to play the luckless Mariners who are at risk of losing their 10th game in a row. City meanwhile are unbeaten in their last three matches and would like to keep their streak going in order to cement second spot on the ladder. Injury-prone starlet Tommy Oar is expected to make an appearance for the Mariners who will need everything they've got to overcome a balanced City squad.

Latest Odds*: Central Coast 6.78 Draw 4.68 Melbourne City 1.46

Brisbane Roar v Newcastle United Jets (Friday 8:30 GMT)

Ex-Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler’s Roar are unbeaten at home in 2020 (won 4, drawn 2) and are strong defensively with no more than one goal conceded in the past nine matches. Since installing new coach Carl Robinson, the Jets are unbeaten in six matches and playing with more confidence. Revenge could be on the cards for Irish striker Ray O’Donovan, who was released by the Roar two months ago.

Latest Odds*: Brisbane 2.66 Draw 3.50 Newcastle 2.61

W League Grand Finals: Melbourne City FC v Sydney FC (Saturday 4:30 GMT)

The league's top two sides face off at AAMI Park with both sides seeking a record fourth Championship title. A City win would see the side complete an undefeated campaign for only the second time in competition history. Defending Champions Sydney FC are led by captain Teresa Polias who has won two titles with the side. Sydney will be wary of red hot favourites City who progressed to the finals via a 5-1 thrashing of Western Sydney last Sunday.

Latest Odds*: Melbourne City 1.19 Draw 5.09 Sydney FC 9.09

Western Sydney Wanderers v Sydney FC (Saturday 8:30 GMT)

Mid-table WSW chase a hat-trick of wins against league leaders Sydney FC. Captain Mitchell Duke is in great form, with six goals in the last six matches. For fans of German soccer, the home team possess ex-Bundesliga stars Ziegler, Mueller and Schwegler, brought in by ex-coach Markus Babbel. League leaders Sydney FC’s only two defeats this season have been at the hands of city rivals Wanderers and both clubs go into the big derby at full strength.

Latest Odds*: Western Sydney Wanderers 3.46 Draw 3.53 Sydney FC 2.07

Newcastle United Jets v Melbourne City FC (Monday 8:30 GMT)

Both sides will be playing their second match in four days as the A-League rushes to finish the season. Despite this being their second away match, City should be the more rested of the two sides given the relatively short commute between the Central Coast and Newcastle. City however will be without their manager Erick Mombaerts who has opted to skip the trip due to the coronavirus. Former Leicester City and Leeds United defender Paddy Kisnorbo will step in for Mombaerts as he hopes to keep City's undefeated streak alive.

Latest Odds*: Newcastle 2.77 Draw 3.60 Melbourne City 2.41

Perth Glory v Western United (Monday 10:30 GMT)

Perth host Western needing a turnaround in form after one win in seven games, mainly due to an over reliance on Uruguayan star Bruno Fornaroli and a tough schedule. Western await news on the recovery of key GK Kurto and MF Kone to service the all-star forward line of Besart Berisha and the enigmatic Alessandro Diamanti.

Latest Odds*: Perth Glory 1.61 Draw 4.08 Western United FC 5.20

Bonus matches

We scoured the rest of the globe to preview two more matches taking place over the weekend.

Eastern Sports Club v Hong Kong Pegasus FC (Saturday 6:30 GMT)

It's FA Cup semi-final weekend in Hong Kong with the two sides battling it out behind closed doors. The Eastern Long Lions are on a three-game winning streak and have amassed 13 goals during that period. Pegasus meanwhile have lost twice so far to Eastern this season and scraped their way into the semi-finals after defeating Yuen Long 5-4 in the last round. Pegasus will be pinning their hopes on the fitness of their Brazilian forward Jean Moser (on-loan from Eastern) to overcome Eastern and book a spot in the finals.

Latest Odds*: Eastern Sports Club 1.49 Draw 4.18 Hong Kong Pegasus FC 4.20

Macapa AP v Sao Paulo FC AP (Saturday 21:00 GMT)

We travel to the state of Amapá in Brazil where Macapá play their second game of the season against São Paulo FC. The two teams locked horns two years ago in an uneventful 0-0 draw with São Paulo leading their head to head record 3-1. The seven-team Campeonato Amapaense remains one of the few active soccer leagues in South America.

Latest Odds*: Macapa AP 2.13 Draw 3.25 Sao Paulo FC AP 2.68
