Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 8 August 2020
Kick-off at 08:00 UK/ 09:00 CET
Venue: Jubilee Oval.
The Boys in Blue have been the worst team in the whole competition after the Central Coast Mariners, and at present, they are on the worst stretch of any team in the league.
While they do have a good h2h record against this opponent recently, it seems that PGFC will be taking advantage of this scenario to record a rare win.
Moreover, they have the Finals Series coming up, and it’s important for them to build some confidence and team chemistry.
Expect Perth Glory to post the three points this weekend.

Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory: Prediction
Grant Berbner’s men are on a five-game losing run, and conceded a total of 14 goals in the process. Going on, they were also winless in eight of their former ten overall fixtures, and they have a single win away from home this whole season.
Also note that they have kept a single clean on the road since October, and lost their latest road fixture by a three-goal margin.
On the other hand, their counterparts had scored three or more goals in their last two games, and were unbeaten at home in six of their last eight appearances.
In addition, it’s been almost fifteen months since they have failed to score at home as well. In fact, they had scored a total of twenty-one goals from their previous eight home games.
Taking into account these observations, expect Perth Glory to post a win easily this Saturday.
