Melbourne City FC vs Melbourne Victory Prediction
The punters will have their doubts on betting upon Melbourne City to win after their disappointing results from their previous clash. They lost 3-1 on the road to the likes of Adelaide United in that encounter.
Since the City has lost away from home, we cannot expect them to lose at home. They have had a better run in the league at home rather than in their away fixtures. Five of City’s overall eight league wins have come at their home. Also, the host has stayed unbeaten in their prior three home fixtures.
On the other hand, they will be facing a team from the bottom part of the table. After three consecutive losses, Melbourne Victory managed to draw their previous encounter with Perth Glory on the road with a 2-2 scoreline.
Victory has had a beneficial h2h history with the host so far. They are unbeaten in their last six visits to AAMI Park. However, this visit will be different as Victory has been suffering from poor away form in the league.
The visitor has marked only two wins in their last eight away fixtures in the campaign until now. Also, they have marked only one win in their past five away games. Their scoring on the road has been rusty this season but they can be counted on to find the back of the net against their rivals for sure.
As such, the host is backed by their home ground advantage and the overall league performance. Hence, the punters can go with a draw no bet upon Melbourne City to be safe under the light of their h2h history at home with the Victory.
Another safe bet for the punters will be in the scoring area as both teams are likely to score at least a goal each in ninety minutes.
