Melbourne Victory vs Sydney FC Predictions 


Melbourne Victory’s season continues to go from bad to worse, despite having a strong team on paper. They host a Sydney side they have not beaten in their last five meetings.

I’m tipping BTTS and a Sydney win, with over 3.5 goals.

  • Melbourne Victory have lost 6 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen over 3.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen BTTS in 7 of their last 8 matches against Sydney (A-League).
  • Sydney FC have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Sydney FC have won their last 5 matches against the Victory (A-League).

Head to Head


Sydney FC have an 18-16 advantage over the Victory with 19 draws in 53 encounters. 

The Sky Blues cruised their way to a 4-1 win the last time they met. Ex-Victory winger Kosta Barbarouses scored a brace against his former fans.

Melbourne Victory Form


Melbourne Victory are winless from their last five matches, with four of these ending in defeat. 

Despite opening the scoring against Adelaide through midfielder Jake Brimmer, the Victory could not stop the fast-finishing Reds and ultimately suffered a 3-1 defeat. 

The situation failed to improve as the four-time champions went down 4-1 away to fellow battlers Wellington the following week. 

The club’s last match saw them hold league leaders Central Coast Mariners to a 1-1 draw away from home. Former Wigan attacker Callum McManaman scored early for the Victory before the Mariners responded soon after to level the scores.

Melbourne Victory Injuries & Team News


Injuries continue to riddle this Victory outfit. 
New Zealand international Marco Rojas will miss once again with a fractured leg.

Striker Rudy Gestede has been sidelined with a knee injury, while Leigh Broxham has also missed several weeks due to injury.

Sydney FC Form


Sydney have hung onto their place inside the top six, despite not playing their best. 

The Sky Blues came from behind to defeat the Jets in a 2-1 win with ex-Serbian international Milos Ninkovic and defender Alex Wilkinson scoring. 

A hard-fought 1-1 draw with Perth Glory followed, with striker Bobo finding the back of the net after Perth had taken the lead. 

A trip to Adelaide followed where a controversial penalty awarded to the Reds saw them escape with a 1-0 win at home. Sydney finished the game with several golden opportunities but failed to get past Adelaide goalkeeper Joe Gauci.

Sydney FC Injuries & Team News


Forward Trent Buhagiar will miss another week due to a knee injury, while left-back Michael Zullo is no closer to a return from a calf issue.

Verdict

Sydney FC have dominated this fixture in recent times. The Sky Blues have won the last five against the Victory, who continue to disappoint this season despite possessing plenty of options up front.
