Western United vs Melbourne Victory Predictions 


Goals have become a feature in this fixture. Western United have bossed the Victory since joining the A-League having won four of their five encounters.

I’m backing a Western United win and over 3.5 goals.

  • Western United have won 4 of their last 5 matches against Melbourne Victory (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen over 3.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches against Western United (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have lost their last 5 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Western United have a 4-0 record against Melbourne Victory with one draw in five encounters. 

Their last meeting saw Western United record an emphatic 4-3 win. Midfielder Steven Lustica stole the points for the green-and-black after he netted a 94th minute winner.

Western United Form


Western United are in desperate need of points after losing their last five matches. 

Following a 5-0 defeat to Western Sydney, the side’s fortunes did not change as they went down 3-0 to Perth Glory.

The game was over by half-time with Western conceding twice inside the opening 20 minutes and failed to lift to the challenge. 

A controversial defeat against Sydney followed in Ballarat, with the Sky Blues earning a contentious penalty in the second half which decided the match. 

Western United’s fifth straight loss came against Wellington in a 3-0 defeat in New Zealand. Despite starting well and only going into the break a goal down, a poor second half saw Western United crumble and fall further away from the top six.

Western United Injuries & Team News


Defender Aaron Calver is out for the remainder of the season with an adductor problem, as is Josh Risdon with a recurring foot injury.

Melbourne Victory Form


Season’s end cannot come sooner for the Victory.

After a promising performance against Perth, the Victory returned to square one following a 3-1 loss to Macarthur. Forward Elvis Kamsoba managed to give the Victory a glimmer of hope late with a goal, though was too little too late. 

A 2-0 loss to rivals Sydney FC followed away from home, with the Victory conceding either side of half time to make it a hattrick of defeats against the Sky Blues this season. 

A return home failed to change much as the four-time champions suffered a 1-0 defeat to Adelaide. While the Victory created several half-chances throughout the match, they were unable to break through a stubborn Reds defence.

Melbourne Victory Injuries & Team News


Defender Nick Ansell is unavailable with a hamstring injury, while winger Marco Rojas will not return this season from an ankle problem.

Socceroo Robbie Kruse also remains on the sideline with a groin injury.
