Western Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne Victory Prediction & Match Preview

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne Victory
Australia A-League
Date: Wednesday, 12 August 2020
Kick-Off at 11:10 UK/ 12:10 CET
Venue: Bankwest Stadium (Sydney)

The home side has to end their season after a poor performance. They are 9th in the table with just 8 wins from 25 games. They have lost against most of the big guns which take their losing tally to 11. Currently, they are on a two-match losing streak, the latest of which came against newbie Western United.

The Victory finally won after a string of consecutive defeats. Their losing streak started back in March and the latest defeat came against the last team in the table-Central Coast Mariners. But the away win against Perth Glory was a shocker as they scored four and even kept a clean sheet.

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne Victory: Prediction

It is still unknown what happened to Victory this season. The Club that finished third last year has been a failure this time around. But they are coming into this game after a win, a win which could have raised their morale. That much-needed morale boost will be crucial in this upcoming tie. Since they have a great head to head history with this opposition, I am backing the visitors to win.

With two of the weakest defenses going against each other, there will be chances at both ends. The visitors are giving away goals at an average of 1.68 goals per game. The home team is not much better with 39 goals given away in 25 games. So I am backing the visitors to win with both teams to score.
