What a way to open the A League to the eager fans. We have the Melbourne Derby at hands. Quite easily the most exciting fixture in the opening weekend of the competition.

The visitors missed out on the AFC Champions League spot by a narrow margin last season and they will be determined to make amends, considering that the hosts, their bitter rivals took the place in the prestigious tournament.

The home fans will want nothing but a victory to start their season and the visiting section of the crowd will cheer on their team to go strong against their eternal rivals.

Seriously! There’s nothing better than a derby match in football.
