It’s an F3 Derby blockbuster to kick-off ‘Super Saturday’ in the Hyundai A-League and Opta Data has all the key stats for Central Coast Mariners v Newcastle Jets.
- Central Coast Mariners snapped a seven-game Hyundai A-League winless streak against Newcastle Jets when these sides last met thanks to a 2-0 win.
- This will be the third time in Hyundai A-League history that a season has opened with an F3 Derby in the opening round, with the Mariners undefeated across those fixtures (W1, D1).
- Indeed, the Mariners are undefeated in their last five season openers (W2, D3), and have only opened two Hyundai A-League campaigns with a loss (2006/07, 2011/12).
- The Jets have failed to find the back of the net in each of their last five Hyundai A-League games played away from home, conceding a total of 14 goals across that span.
- Both the Mariners (336) and Jets (377) conceded fewer fouls than any other teams in the Hyundai A-League last season.
- Andrew Nabbout lead the Newcastle Jets in goals scored (8), assists (4), and touches in the opposition box (89) last Hyundai A-League season.
