Melbourne Victory vs Sydney FC Prediction

Melbourne Victory recorded a 2-1 win at home the last match-day, against Adelaide United. The comeback win, that too with the winner coming in the 90+1st minute would be a huge confidence-boost for the team.

Elsewhere, Sydney lost 0-1 at home, against WS Wanderers. The defeat put an end to their six-match winning run in the league, and their 13-match unbeaten run in the competition as well (of which 12 were wins). Quite certainly, the squad will be frustrated, and will want to get back to their winning track.

Keep note that they are the defending champions, and the toppers at present. They have also been on ominous form this whole season, have scored the most goals, and have conceded the least. They have also posted the best stats on the road (despite playing fewer games), and have lost a single game away from home this whole campaign.

On the other hand, Melbourne are placed in the bottom tier, and were winless in 13 of their previous 20 overall fixtures. At home, the team could amass a total of just three wins this A-League season, and are the second-worst team in front of the home crowd in 2019-20.

Moreover, Sydney had won the reverse fixture (that too on the road with a clean sheet), and had recorded ten of the past twelve such wins. They are also on a four-game winning run against this opponent, and had won four of the past five such meetings at this venue.

Taking these observations into account, expect a huge win for Sydney this Saturday.
