Melbourne Victory vs Western United FC
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 25 July 2020
Kick-off at 10:35 UK/ 11:35 CET
Venue: Marvel Stadium (Melbourne).
Melbourne Victory is trying hard to make a comeback in the league but things are not going their way for the time being. Western United will try to work on their winning streak and probably will continue the trend at Marvel Stadium.
The Melbourne outfit has only one win in their recent five fixtures in the campaign. They are on a double loss in the league schedule, following a 3-0 loss on the road against Wellington Phoenix last time out.
The Victory has only 3 wins at home so far in their 10 home matches in the league. Two of those trio wins came within the recent five fixtures at home in the schedule.
Western United is seven points ahead of the host in the league table. They have won their recent two matches in the campaign, following a 1-5 win on the road against Adelaide United last time out.
The visitor has 4 wins in their 9 away fixtures in the campaign and two of their overall three losses on the road came in their last five outings in the league away schedule.
With their h2h history showing a dominating presence over the home team, the traveling side will come in hot to Marvel Stadium in hopes of the bragging rights from the game.

Melbourne Victory vs Western United FC Prediction
With their losing streak in the campaign, Melbourne Victory cannot hope for a win especially
against a team that has defeated them twice last year; both at home and away.
Besides, Western United is on a winning streak in the campaign and they have won their last two games with a four-goal margin in each. It is likely to increase the morale of the players.
Even though the visitors have struggled on the road, facing a home team with such poor overall record will add to their advantage in the game.
The safest bet for the punters will be a double chance of favoring Western United with 1.57 odds. Since their only two h2h meetings saw both teams score in the clashes, the tip for BTTS at 1.50 odds will also come in handy for the punters.
