Western Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne Victory
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off at 10:50 UK
Venue: ANZ Stadium, Sydney
Melbourne Victory have lost their chances to make the top 2 cut in A-League with an unpredictable spell of form late in the campaign, where they travel to Sydney with just one win seen in their last five outings across competitions.
Boys in Blue have beaten Central Coast Mariners at home ground but saw Sydney and Adelaide United bag the points along the way, with a loss and a draw in two AFC Champions League clashes. They’ve struggled to keep it together at the back and this could be more worrying ahead of the Play-offs, as Kevin Muscat’s men regularly concede and score goals.
Western Sydney Wanderers have seen woes of their own, though, as they dropped out of the race for top 6 spots and earned just one point in their last three outings. Indeed, they’ve held off Sydney to a 1-1 draw at this ground and saw losses to Newcastle Jets and Central Coast Mariners on the road, where they show just as many inconsistencies at the back.
