Sydney FC vs Melbourne Victory Predictions 


Melbourne Victory are enduring their worst-ever season, despite being involved in many high scoring matches. They travel to face an in-form Sydney after two straight wins. 

I’m backing a Sydney win and BTTS, with the match to see over 3.5 goals.

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

Head to Head


Sydney FC have an 18-16 advantage in the head-to-head with 19 draws in 53 matches. 

The Sky Blues put the Victory to the sword in their last meeting, coming away with a 4-1 win in Melbourne. Former Victory winger Kosta Barbarouses netted a brace for Sydney in the big win.

Sydney FC Form


Sydney FC have returned to form after four matches without a win. 

Brazilian striker Bobo scored his first goal on return to the club as the Sky Blues went on to share the points with Brisbane in a 1-1 draw. 

Their fortunes changed the following week as they saw off Western United in a 2-0 win. Bobo converted a penalty in the first half, while right-back Rhyan Grant sealed the points with his goal just after half-time.

Sydney would make it consecutive wins as they defeated Newcastle 2-1 at home. Despite conceding first, goals from ex-Serbian international Milos Ninkovic and defender Alex Wilkinson guided the Sky Blues to victory.

Sydney FC Injuries & Team News


Forward Trent Buhagiar continues to nurse a knee injury. Aside from this, head coach Steve Corica will have all his players fit.

Melbourne Victory Form


Things continue to go from bad to worse for Melbourne Victory. 

The four-time champions have lost their last four matches and have conceded 13 goals in their last three.

Despite a valiant comeback against Western United where they rectified a 3-1 deficit, the Victory would go on to lose 4-3 after a 95th minute goal. Midfielder Jacob Butterfield scored his debut goal, while ex-Middlesbrough striker Rudy Gestede headed home his third for the season. 

The following week saw the club suffer its greatest ever defeat at the hands of its rivals. The Victory went down 6-0 in the derby against City, before conceding another three against Adelaide in a 3-1 loss.

Melbourne Victory Injuries & Team News


Defenders Ryan Shotton and Dylan Ryan will again sit out with groin and knee injuries respectively. 

It appears forward Marco Rojas’ season could be over with further scans revealing the Kiwi international suffered a fracture in his leg.
