Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
The 2020-21 A-League home-and-away season comes to a close with Melbourne City taking on the Newcastle Jets in a match of almost zero consequence. Keep up with all the action at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium with live scores on The Roar from 7:05pm (AEST).
This matchup had been delayed from the season’s penultimate weekend and will now see the first-placed Melbourne City tackle the last-placed Newcastle Jets at a neutral venue.
There is absolutely nothing for City to gain here – they have a week off before playing their semi-final against an elimination final winner at this venue. Newcastle, on the other hand, can actually move themselves out of last place if they score an unlikely draw tonight.
