📏 Form Guide

Melbourne City LWWDWL

Melbourne City will be hoping for a better result after a 2-1 A-League loss in their previous game against Newcastle United Jets.

The only player to score from Melbourne City was Florin Bérenguer (70'). Nick Fitzgerald (45') and Steven Ugarković (78') scored for Newcastle United Jets.

It’s been seldom in recent games where Melbourne City have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that City have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 8 goals on the way. We will have to see if that trend will be continued on in this game.

Ahead of this meeting, Melbourne City are unbeaten in their previous 6 home league matches.

Sydney FC DWDDWL

Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Newcastle United Jets in A-League competition, Sydney FC and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

The only scorer from Sydney FC was Anthony Cáceres (25'). Nick Fitzgerald (58') and Kosta Petratos (90') scored for Newcastle United Jets.

The numbers tell their own story, and Sydney FC have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 7 goals overall. At the back, The Sky Blues could really do with shoring things up.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Sydney FC:

  • have not lost to Melbourne City when having played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. A very decent away record against them.
  • are undefeated in their last 8 league matches away from home. They really have been good on their travels.
