Sydney FC vs Melbourne City FC Prediction

Sydney were on the road the last match-day, and had locked horns with Wellington Phoenix. The tough game saw Sydney’s long winning streak come to an end, as Phoenix held them to a 2-2 draw.

Meanwhile, Melbourne City had been pitted against their derby rival Melbourne Victory the previous game week, and the fierce game saw the former lose at home, 1-2.

At present, it could easily be said that there is no better team in Australia than Sydney. They are the reigning champions, and are placed at the top of the table. They have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the league, and have conceded the least as well.

On top of that, Sydney have the home advantage, and have won every single one of their league games in front of the home crowd this season. At home too, they have scored the most, and conceded the least.

In addition, keep note that Sydney have won eight of their previous ten overall match-ups, and are on a five-game winning run at the Jubilee Oval.

On the other hand, Melbourne lost three of their last five overall fixtures, and were winless in three of their previous six trips on the road.

Most importantly, Sydney won eight of the preceding nine meetings against this opponent, and scored two or more goals in seven of the prior nine h2h clashes. Furthermore, at this venue, they won four of the last five such encounters, and have lost only twice since 2011 against Melbourne.

Bringing these findings for close scrutiny, it’s deduced that Sydney are overwhelming favorites for this game. Backing Sydney FC for a win seems the right choice.
