📋 Team News: Melbourne Victory

Regarding absentees, there’s just a single fitness concern for the Melbourne Victory gaffer Tony Popović to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed group. Nani (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.

ℹ️ Team News: Sydney FC

Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the Sydney FC manager Steve Corica doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match.

🧠 Prediction

It’s looking like Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.

A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. That is why we are leaning toward a tight encounter with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the 90.
