These sides will play in finals this season and could well face each-other again in the first week of the finals series.

If Melbourne City win this match, they could play Perth again but in Melbourne so this could be a warm up match for next week.

Perth are playing good football recently which is great heading into finals and they would want to see that form continue in this match.

City have been inconsistent in the past month and consecutive wins would be valuable for them and give them momentum as they charge for finals.

A win for the Glory will move them up to fifth place while a City win will keep them in third spot.

This should be a close game but Perth Glory are at home and they should get a close win against Melbourne City in this encounter.
