NJ vs SYD Dream11 Tips for Newcastle Jets vs Sydney FC A League Fixtures 8 May

Share

NJ vs SYD Dream11: Newcastle Jets’ winless streak continued as they suffered an eighth loss during that 11 game period last time out against Melbourne City. They now come up against reigning champions Sydney as they look to end their wretched run of form but the away side will have other ideas. They have hit a disappointing run of form themselves after losing to Western Sydney Wanderers last week and while that was their first defeat in seven, they have now won just one of their last five. However, the form of the hosts leaves a lot to be desired and Sydney can get back to winning ways in this one.
