Sydney FC to Win

The reigning A-League champions have slipped down in the top-four slots after two successive draws. However, they have the chance to reclaim their place for the play-off semifinals. With Melbourne Victory struggling to keep attackers at bay, they have a good opportunity to get back to winning ways. However, they should be wary of their rivals whose attack plundered five after conceding four in their last competitive outing.

Total Goals Over 2.5

There were nine goals in Victory’s last A-League fixture. Couple that with Sydney FC’s four against Central Coast Mariners, and we have the ingredients for another cracker of a match. However, both Steve Corica and Steve Kean will be looking to plug their defensive gaps. With Sydney managing less than a goal per game at the Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, expect a closed out fixture.

Both Teams to Score: No

In their last five games on the road, Melbourne have been shutout twice. During the same period, Sydney have managed two clean sheets at home. With the season entering its final stretch and plenty on the line, both squads will be looking to minimize damage as the playoffs approach. With Victory failing to keep rivals at bay, it will be a test for Sydney’s character to hold of the opposition and come unscathed.

Sydney vs Melbourne Victory Fixture Preview

Sydney FC

The Sky Blues were the dominant outfit in A-League last year. They have the opportunity to repeat their heroics of last year and can claim the playoff semi-final berth. To test their resolve, they will have to tame A-League’s second-worst attacking outfit and the worst defensive unit. Bobo and Kosta Barbarouses will be chief proponents in the meeting, as the duo lead Sydney’s goalscoring charts with six goals apiece.

Melbourne Victory

The Boys in Blue cannot wait for the season to be over and resume operations under Tony Popovic next campaign. However, they will remember the 2020/21 season for their nine-goal thriller involving West Sydney Wanderers. Steve Kean’s men gave a good account of their abilities and have the chance to follow it up with a positive result against the Wanderers city mates. The Victory faithful will have their eyes on Jake Brimmer. The midfielder has four goals and three assists to his name, being the standout player in a forgettable year.
