Sydney FC vs Melbourne Victory: Predictions

These are the best sides in the league so expect a high-quality match.

Sydney got back on the winners last round and will fancy their chances of beating Melbourne at home to extend the gap on the ladder to 11 points and move one step close to the premiers’ plate. Playmaker Milos Ninkovic has been in stellar form this season and will be the key for the Sky Blues in this match.

Melbourne will do anything they can to win this game to close the gap to 5 points and the way to do that is to not allow Sydney’s attacking players get any room to play their game while creating enough chances themselves up front to score goals.
