Melbourne City vs Perth Glory Predictions 


Perth Glory have seen over 2.5 goals in every A-League match so far. They face a City outfit who are tough to beat at home and are also capable of scoring plenty. I’m backing BTTS and over 2.5 goals, with a City win also having value.

  • Melbourne City have won 5 of their last 7 home matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne City have seen over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches against Perth Glory (A-League).
  • Perth Glory have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Perth Glory have seen BTTS in 7 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Perth Glory have lost their last 3 away matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Perth Glory have a 16-8 advantage in the head-to-head with 10 draws in the 38 encounters. 

City recorded a 3-2 win the last time these two sides met. After jumping out to a 3-0 lead by half-time, City were forced to hang on as Perth pulled two goals back through midfielder Joel Chianese and forward Bruno Fornaroli.

Melbourne City Form


City rectified their 2-0 loss to Adelaide with a dramatic 2-1 win at home against Western United in their first home match in over 300 days.

After conceding first, City equalised just before half-time through winger Craig Noone. Socceroos forward Jamie Maclaren then tapped in the winner with five minutes remaining to guide City to their second win of the season.

Melbourne City Injuries & Team News


City will welcome back captain Scott Jamieson who missed the last week due to suspension. 

Japanese import Naoki Tsubaki made his debut for the club against Western United and will be in contention to start again. 

Andrew Nabbout will be sidelined for another week as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Academy product Stefan Colakovski and ex-Sydney forward Marco Tilio are also a chance to start. The pair received great plaudits from head coach Patrick Kisnorbo after coming off the bench to help set-up the winning goal.

Perth Glory Form


This will be Perth’s fourth match in 12 days, with the Glory experiencing a hectic return to the action. 

Their first game back ended in triumphant victory as they defeated Adelaide United 5-3 at home. Striker Nick D’Agostino starred with a brace, while Uruguayan forward Bruno Fornaroli also got on the scoresheet.

Perth’s goalscoring run continued into their next match as they went down 5-4 to Western United. In a crazy affair, the Glory conceded the decisive goal five minutes from time. 

Unfortunately for the Glory luck was not on their side in their next match either, as another late goal saw them lose 2-1 to Melbourne Victory.

Perth Glory Injuries & Team News


Perth captain and star midfielder Diego Castro will return for this match. The Spaniard has been out of action since mid-2020 and will no doubt buoy the young Glory outfit. 

Winger Chris Ikonomidis continues to recover from a ruptured ACL, while defender Osama Malik will also miss due to injury.
