Victory have won their last three meetings with Sydney FC, beating them twice this season and eliminating them from the playoffs at the end of last term. This, combined with their excellent away record this season, makes a Melbourne Victory Win
Brisbane also have a dreadful away record in this term of A-League. They won just one, drew 3 and lost 9 of 13 league affairs on the road. Knowing Melbourne City lost just 1 of 10 home outings of their own, we can understand why the bookies also see the hosts as enormous favourites to pick up a three-pointer here.
Melbourne City notched seven goals in last three home outings in the competition. They will have plenty of room to keep such high-scoring form going past the second weakest defensive line in the league here
Brisbane Roar have been terrible across the board really, but away from home things get even worse. The visitors have won just one away game all season, and that came against bottom of the table Mariners. They have lost nine of their 13 trips away and conceded a massive 31 goals in the process, 13 of which have come in the last four games.
Melbourne City, meanwhile, have won half of their home games this term and only lost once. They have seen at least three goals in half of these home games too, and with them facing a Roar side who have seen three or more goals in 10 of their 13 trips away we think a high scoring game could be on the cards. For this reason, we’re backing a Melbourne City Win and Over 2.5 Goals along with a 3-1 correct score prediction.
