Melbourne Victory vs Western United FC Prediction
The hosts picked up their first win of the season last week after they did just enough to post a 1-0 scorecard against Brisbane Roar on the road. Melbourne Victory have now garnered four points from a possible nine and are currently sixth on the ladder, level on points with foes Western United FC.
Mark Rudan’s men, on the other hand, got their first taste of defeat in their respective clash with Melbourne City at home, albeit by a narrow 2-1 scoreline. Despite leveling the scores in the second half, the visitors were thrust on to the back foot, after Mclaren found the back of the net, five minutes before the end of regulation time.
Western United are now without a win in their last two games on the trot, with their only victory so far coming on the road against Wellington Phoenix, back in their opener. Be that as it may, Melbourne Victory have got off to a poor start on home soil, this season, and are yet to pick up a win here.
Taking into account that the A-League debutants have upset the odds twice already in the clashes so far, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Western United rather than the hosts.
Furthermore, the away side’s backline have failed to meet expectations and have conceded a goal or more in their last two games.
Considering that Melbourne Victory were also deprived of a clean sheet in their most recent matchup here, count on both teams to have their names on the scorecards, by the end of the ninety minutes.
