Melbourne City FC vs Western Sydney
Australia – A-League
Date: Tuesday, 22nd January 2019
Kick-off at 08.50 UK/ 09.50 CET
Venue: AAMI Park (Melbourne).
After a run of five unbeaten games in the league, City Blues lost the course a little in their course to catch up with their local rivals. The misfiring in the last two games will definitely be hurting the players, and they have an opportunity coming up in the form of the Wanderers.
To be honest, no team in the entire league would be a perfect replacement as opponents, for the hosts to get back into the groove, other than Markus Babbel’s men. They are off the mark by a long distance, and a spot in the playoffs is long gone after their run of five consecutive losses.
Fans from Western Sydney hope for a turnaround, and let’s wait and see what happens for them at the end of the season.
Melbourne City FC vs Western Sydney Head-to-head (h2h)
- Heart has scored in their last 11 matches in a row.
- The Wanderers failed to score in two of their last three games.
- Four of the last five wins at this venue are in the name of the hosts.
- City scored in their last six fixtures at the AAMI Park, and kept clean sheets in two of their last four.
Melbourne City FC vs Western Sydney Prediction
Heart will be eager to get back on the pitch and bring things under order after they secured just one point in their last two games. They conceded ground in their race for the top spots, and will be looking into ways to make up for it.
At home, City Blues are unbeaten in their last six ties, and kept clean sheets in four of them. Before their two games where they dropped points, the team was on another streak of five unbeaten matches. Coupled with their home advantage, the team is the favorite for this game.
Markus Babbel’s men are coming into this tie after a run of seven winless ties, and five straight losses. Additionally, they have conceded 18 goals in their last seven match-ups, and have secured just two wins from their last 15 attempts.
The team is the prime candidate, without doubt, to concede in, and lose, the first half.
