Sydney FC vs Melbourne Victory Predictions 


The Sky Blues are in-form and timing their run ahead of another finals series. They host a Melbourne Victory side they have defeated in their last six meetings. 

I’m backing BTTS, over 3.5 goals and Sydney to win 3-1 in the A-League.

  • Sydney FC have seen BTTS in their last 3 matches (A-League).
  • Sydney FC have seen over 3.5 goals in their last 2 matches (A-League).
  • Sydney FC have won their last 6 matches against Melbourne Victory (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen over 6.5 goals in their last 2 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have lost 6 of their last 9 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Sydney have a 19-16 advantage in the head-to-head with 19 draws in 54 encounters. 

Their last encounter saw the Sky Blues record a 3-0 win in Melbourne. Brazilian striker Bobo opened the scoring, while ex-Victory winger Kosta Barbarouses also added to the scoresheet.  

Sydney FC Form


Sydney FC are unbeaten in their last five games in the league. 

The Sky Blues lead Melbourne City for most of the second half after winger Kosta Barbarouses opened the scoring. But a 98th minute penalty converted by City saw the sides share the points in a 1-1 draw. 

A 2-2 with Adelaide followed where Sydney let a two goal lead slip.  It was Brazilian forward Bobo who scored both of Sydney’s goals on the night. 

Sydney were then forced to do the chasing the next week. The Sky Blues rectified a two-goal deficit to force a 2-2 draw with Central Coast. 

Serbian midfielder Milos Ninkovic scored in the 45th minute before forward Trent Buhagiar drew the champions level in the 83rd.

Sydney FC Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Calem Nieuwenhof will miss with a back injury, while left-back Michael Zullo remains sidelined with a calf issue.

Melbourne Victory Form


Melbourne Victory have given fans a reason to smile in recent weeks. 

After going a goal behind, the Victory stormed home to defeat Newcastle 2-1. Centre-back Dylan Ryan drew them level before young forward Lleyton Brooks found the winner with his debut goal.

An embarrassing 7-0 loss against rivals Melbourne City followed in the derby, with head coach Grant Brebner losing his job after the match. 

With interim boss Steve Kean in charge, the Victory recorded a 5-4 win against Western Sydney. Forward Ben Folami starred with a brace as the Victory hung on for dear life after almost letting a 5-1 lead slip in the second half.

Melbourne Victory Injuries & Team News


Striker Rudy Gestede returned from a knee injury in last week’s win. 

Winger Marco Rojas is still out with a broken ankle, while defender Ryan Shotto will also miss with a knee injury. 

Fellow defender Nick Ansell has also been sidelined with a groin injury.

Verdict

Sydney FC have been impressive in front of goal and host a Victory side with a leaky defence. The Victory are also capable of scoring but consistent performances have been few and far between.
