Sydney FC won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 1-0 AFC Champions League defeat last time out to Hoang Anh Gia Lai.

Sydney FC have not been in good attacking form in more recent games. Their goals record equals just 3 vs opponents during their previous 6 outings. In those games, Sydney FC have also seen the number of goals scored against them total 9. Nonetheless, we must now wait to see if the trend might be replicated in this game.

Coming into this contest, Sydney FC haven't been beaten in the league by Melbourne Victory in their last 8 games. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.

Pre-game facts show that Melbourne Victory:

  • have left without a victory over Sydney FC when having played them away from home in the previous 4 league matches. They'll be keen to stop this run.

🔮 Prediction

Our feeling is that Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.

Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to us. Therefore, we predict a 1-1 score draw at full-time.
