Melbourne Victory vs Melbourne City FC Prediction
Marco Kurz’s men will be welcoming the guests on the back of a disappointing exit from the FFA Cup, that too on penalties against Newcastle Jets. Despite showing real promise in the previous season with a third-place finish, the hosts have got off on the wrong foot as of now and will be shifting their priority to their derby clash with Melbourne City.
Their counterparts, on the other hand, are on fine form at the moment and have made it all the way to the finals of the FFA Cup, with some very convincing victories. Furthermore, the away side have been faring well in their previous visits to this venue and have not admitted defeat in any of their last three trips here.
However, considering that their most recent clash here saw both teams inseparable at the last blast of the whistle, the safest punt in this one would have to be a double chance backing Melbourne City rather than the hosts.
Additionally, there has been no dearth of goals in their previous head to head matchups, especially at this venue. Ten out of their last fifteen meetings here have witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet.
Taking into account that their last four clashes with each other here have also featured goals down either end, expect neither team to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
