Western United vs Melbourne City FC Prediction
The debutants have got off to a fine start in the A-League and are so far unbeaten in their campaign. Their opening clash with Wellington Phoenix on the road saw them register a 1-0 victory, following which they managed to hold the mighty Perth Glory to a goalless draw.
Melbourne City FC have also garnered just four points from a possible six in their respective fixtures. The away side posted a 2-1 victory against Adelaide United at home in their most recent matchup.
Prior to that game, the visitors picked a point off of rivals Melbourne Victory after both teams failed to find the back of the net.
In all honesty, the hosts have been showing a lot of promise than their counterparts. Given that they also managed to deprive the 2018-19 Premiers from walking away with the win in their last clash here, the favorites to secure all three points will have to be Western United in this one.
However, the visitors also managed to avoid defeat in their last trip on the road by forcing their foes to share the spoils with them. Hence, the safest punt is undoubtedly a double chance, backing the home side.
Furthermore, both teams have been solid at the back and have already bagged a clean sheet apiece from their previous two games. Taking into account that they have also scored no more than three goals between them in their campaign so far, a low scoring affair is definitely looming large come Sunday.
