Melbourne City vs Perth Glory
Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 08:50 UK/ 09:50 CET
Venue: AAMI Park (Melbourne).
Unlike their counterparts in the English Premier League, City has been a little bit off this season. They will face topers Perth Glory this Saturday in the league hoping to come back to winning ways.
City is 4th with 7 wins from 13 games so far. A 5 game unbeaten streak that had 4 wins ended with an away loss to the Mariners. That loss against the bottom side will have a negative impact on the team’s morale. Glory will be looking to take advantage of this situation and improve their position in the table.
Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their last 5 matches across all venues. At home, they still have a 5 game unbeaten run and are currently on a 2 match win streak. In 3 of those 5 games, the score had fewer than 2.5 goals.
Glory are comfortable at the top of the table as they are on a 4 match win streak in the league. But their nearest opponents Melbourne Victory still poses a challenge for them since there is only 3 points between them.
Over 2.5 goals were scored in all their recent 5 games across all venues and they conceded in all those matches as well. They are also unbeaten in the previous 8 matches on the road. From 3 of their last 5 outings, the score was over 2.5 goals at the full time.

Melbourne City vs Perth Glory: Prediction
The visitors have not lost on their last 4 travels to this ground. They have won three of those matches too. Also since they are on a 4 match winning run in the league, we may see them win this match after all.
But City is also not lost a game in the last 5 home fixtures including the 4 wins in that period. There is ample chance for this match to finish with both teams sharing the spoils as well. Thus a bet can be placed on a double chance for the match to draw or Glory to win with 1.55 odds.
Hosts have found the net in all the 5 matches they played recently at home. The visitors have also scored in 10 away matches on the trot. With both teams in a scoring form, we can bet on them both to score on Saturday also with 1.73 odds.
