Head to Head


Sydney FC have a 15-10 advantage in the head-to-head with nine draws in 34 matches. 

Melbourne City hung on to record a 3-2 win over Sydney in their last meeting. Forward Jamie Maclaren scored a brace while midfielder Adrian Luna also contributed on the scoresheet.

Sydney FC Form


Sydney FC have enjoyed an impressive month of form. Despite a controversial 1-0 loss away to Adelaide United, the Sky Blues bounced back with a 3-0 win against Melbourne Victory. 

Brazilian forward Bobo opened the scoring before ex-Victory winger Kosta Barbarouses doubled Sydney’s lead. Midfielder Alex Baumjohann sealed the win from the penalty spot late in the second half. 

The Sky Blues then maintained this momentum with a 1-0 win against Perth. Barbarouses’ 54th minute goal was enough as Sydney recorded consecutive wins.

Sydney FC Injuries & Team News


Forward Trent Buhagiar is expected to return from a knee injury. 

Left back Michael Zullo is still out with a calf injury, while midfielder Chris Zuvela will miss the rest of the season with a knee problem.

Melbourne City Form


Melbourne City have solidified themselves as favourites for the championship after eight wins from their last nine. 

City saw off Western Sydney at home in a 4-1 win. Despite conceding first, the home side piled on the goals with ex-Bolton winger Craig Noone and golden boot winner Jamie Maclaren scoring.

While their run came to an end against Western United in a 2-1 loss, City bounced back in the thrilling 3-2 win over Wellington.

Defender Curtis Good headed his first goal of the season, while Maclaren added to his tally right on half-time. Substitute Marco Tilio was the hero with his 83rd minute goal to win the match.
