Adelaide United vs Melbourne City: Prediction

A game where Adelaide United need to play well but also just as important for Melbourne City to gain consecutive wins.

Adelaide have scored the fewest goals this season with just 10 goals and their last goal was 4 rounds ago when an own goal happened so they need their striker in Sergio Guardiola to step up and start scoring.

Melbourne have a strong squad for this game and it will be hard for United to break down their defence and handle City’s attack when they have the ball.

A win for Adelaide could see them move to ninth spot while a City win will keep them in third place

Despite the home advantage, this fixture looks set for an away win for Melbourne City over Adelaide United.
