Melbourne City return to A-League action for the first time in more than four months when they take on premiership winners Sydney FC on Saturday. 

City have had to move to Sydney due to the lockdown in Melbourne, and the match will be more of a home game for Sydney at ANZ Stadium.

Melbourne City Form


Melbourne City's last game was back in March before the season came to a halt. It ended with a 2-1 loss at the hands of Newcastle Jets.

Prior to the defeat to the Jets, Melbourne City had been on a good run of form with four wins in six seeing them sit in second spot. Wellington Phoenix have taken the automatic semi-final spot since.

Sydney FC Form


Sydney FC have already been able to build up match fitness with two games since the restart of the A-League season. The Sky Blues won 3-1 against Wellington Phoenix before losing 2-1 to a last minute Newcastle Jets winner last week.

Despite the defeat, the Sky Blues are still 11 points clear at the top of the A-League table and have secured the Premiers Plate with four games remaining.

Melbourne City vs Sydney FC Head to Head


Sydney FC have dominated this fixture in recent times, winning nine of the last 10 matches against Melbourne City. That included eight in a row before City broke the run in the latter stages of last season in Sydney.

The only meeting this season saw 10-man Sydney FC win 2-1 at home over the festive period with Kosta Barbarouses getting the winner four minutes from time. Adam Le Fondre also scored in that game and missed a penalty.
