Melbourne Victory vs Sydney FC Prediction

Melbourne Victory recorded back to back defeats for the second time this season after they failed to get the better of both Central Coast Mariners and Adelaide United on the road. The hosts have now tasted success just thrice in their past twelve games in the top flight, and are currently placed eighth in a cluster of eleven.

On the other hand, Sydney FC are in fine form at the moment. The guests are unbeaten in their last ten fixtures and have dropped points just once in the process.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have not been at the losing end since their 1-0 defeat to WS Wanderers way back in October. Meanwhile, Melbourne Victory are yet to ensure consistency in their clashes at home.

Miserably, the hosts have just two measly wins to boast of at AAMI Park so far. Piling on even more misery, Sydney FC have secured the bragging rights in three of their last four visits here.

Given the promising run that they are on, even on the road, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of the visiting contingent in this one.

However, the hosts have been alternating between wins and draws in their past four games at home. Considering that Sydney FC have also shared the spoils on the road once already this term, back a double chance just to be on the safer side.

Additionally, the visitors have looked lively in the final third. They have scored two goals or more in each of their last four outings. Moreover, nine of the seventeen goals for the hosts so far have come from their clashes in front of the home crowd.

Taking into account that three of their past four h2h meetings here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair this Friday as well.
