Melbourne City vs Perth Glory Prediction

The visiting team has in no way enjoyed success of any significant level recently especially in away games. With that being said they have not lost by a margin of more than 1 goal in the last 7 games on the road.

Additionally, the hosts are not off to a great start as well. With these in mind, I have backed the away team with an Asian Handicap.

PGFC has failed to score just once in the last 13 games. Their opponents on the other hand have scored in all but one fixture since January. Both teams are likely to score.

Melbourne City vs Perth Glory Betting Tips

  • Perth Glory +1.5 Asian Handicap @ 1.67 odds.
  • Both teams to score @ 1.83 odds.
