Sydney FC won the tie on penalties last time and they picked from they left off this season. The finished at the top of the table in the regular season for a second season on the trot and a strong home record to go with it.

On top of that, we saw similar faces being the pick of their performances once again. The stand out is without a doubt the Brazilian striker Bobo who scored 15 times last season and 27 in this season.

Melbourne Victory are three times champions of the competition and their last came in the 2014/15 season. They finished 4th in the regular season this term and got past Brisbane Roar 2-1 to book the semifinal berth for the second time in a row.

Form wise, Victory are on an excellent run, but I am afraid most of their wins happens at their own turf. They lost 4 of the last 6 on the road and they are up against a team that they haven’t beaten in 8 attempts.

Sydney FC vs Melbourne Victory: Head-to-head

Sydney won all the three meetings against Melbourne Victory this season. Only one of those was played at Sydney and that match saw a 1-0 ft score-line.

As we mentioned earlier, the Sky Blues are unbeaten in the last 8 matches against Melbourne Victory, 7 wins and 1 draws.

Sydney FC vs Melbourne Victory: Prediction

We can expect a tense battle at the Allianz Stadium as Melbourne look to restore parity against the Sydney FC team that beat them to the title last season. Despite an inconsistent away form, Kevin Muscat’s men have confidence and momentum after picking wins from their last 5 matches.

However, they are coming to Sydney’s fortress where the hosts lost just 1 of their 14 games this season. So, expect a cat-and-mouse game, but the home team have the better chance of edging a narrow win.
