Brisbane Roar and Sydney FC square off in the A-League on Saturday having already booked their place in the Finals Series.

While Sydney have already guaranteed second spot in the regular standings, the home side still require a victory to secure third position.

We say: Brisbane Roar 1-1 Sydney FC

With bigger things to come for both teams, do not expect the most thrilling of contests this weekend. Even though Sydney may play a weakened side, the visitors could still earn a share of the spoils.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Central Coast Mariners play host to Western United on Saturday looking to earn the victory which will secure a home tie in the early stages of the A-League Finals Series.

While the Mariners are guaranteed a spot in the top six, the visitors will finish in 10th position after a disastrous end to the campaign.

We say: Central Coast Mariners 2-1 Western United

The Mariners will likely rotate their squad for this contest, theoretically opening the door for the visitors. Nevertheless, we still expect the hosts to come through with maximum points, securing a position in the top four in the process.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Newcastle Jets vs. Perth Glory (Saturday, 10.10am)

Newcastle Jets square off against Perth Glory on Saturday looking for the win which may move the club off the bottom of the A-League standings.

While Glory's strong end to the campaign has recently weakened, the visitors can still earn seventh spot with a victory and if other results go their way.

We say: Newcastle Jets 1-2 Perth Glory

On the back of their shock win last time out, the Jets will go all out for three points at the weekend. However, we also expect Glory to make improvements, and that could prove enough for the visitors to edge this contest by the odd goal in three.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
