Reason For Melbourne City vs Melbourne Victory Betting Tips

  • Melbourne City have been exchanging wins and losses in recent weeks and will be hoping to end that run in an important derby match.
  • Melbourne Victory have struggled this season, winning just two of their 10 games, and have won just one of their last five games.
  • The home side have scored 16 goals in their last six matches but have conceded 12 with their games averaging 4.66 goals per game.
  • Victory are at the opposite end of the table with just five goals in the same time period, conceding nine and seeing their games average 2.33 goals per game.

Goals look assured but results less so for Melbourne City

Melbourne City can certainly claim to be the entertainers of the 2019/20 A-League season, scoring 20 goals and conceding 14 with average of over 3.7 goals per game in which they’ve featured. Their attack is as potent as their defence is failing but results keep coming their way with six wins from nine games so far.

The team hasn’t got any major injury worries either, which is a big plus for the team which has remained consistent this season. Both attacking midfielders contributed to the goals last weekend and that will help relieve some of the pressure on the league’s top scorer, Jamie Maclaren who has 10 goals in nine matches so far.

Frustration is growing at Melbourne Victory

There isn’t a lot of cheer at Melbourne Victory so far this season with just two victories in ten games and less than a goal a game. They’ve lost three of their last five games and frustration is beginning to grow within the fanbase with many thinking that the side should be performing at the other end of the table.

Victory have conceded 10 goals in their last six games and have lost two of those matches by two goals with their attacking talent really struggling to compete at the required level. This is a derby game against their fiercest rivals though and that chances the dynamic somewhat.

Will Melbourne be dark or light blue?

These two side normally play out a hotly contested game and this one should be no different with Melbourne Victory really looking to make an impact after a poor start to the season. With this being such an important match to both sides we’re predicting that both teams will score and the 2.5 goal line will be beaten.

There should be plenty of chances in this game but Melbourne City have been the much better side so far this season and that should shine through once again and we’re predicting that City will leave with all three points in a 2-1 win.
