Melbourne Victory Preview – Can Melbourne Victory bounce back?

Melbourne Victory are no longer the force they used to be in the Australian A-League, and you only have to look at their last two results to confirm this as the former A-League powerhouse have lost back-to-back matches against Sydney FC 4-1 and Wellington Phoenix 3-0, leaving them second from bottom in the A-League standings.

Indeed, Melbourne Victory have picked up just one win out of their last nine matches overall which was a 2-1 home win against Adelaide United, but six defeats within this period show the extent of Victory’s sad decline in recent times.

Results at home have been a mixed bag of late for Grant Brebner’s side as Victory have recorded wins against Perth Glory, Newcastle Jets and the aforementioned win against Adelaide but they’ve also fallen to two losses against old rivals, Sydney FC – however, the goals market could appeal here as six of Victory’s 10 home matches have produced three goals or more.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Western United Preview – Can Western Utd make it three wins on the trot?

7th placed Western United did their chances of achieving a top six finish in this season’s A-League no harm at all in recent matches as the visitors have posted back-to-back wins against Central Coast Mariners 6-2 and a 5-1 thrashing of Adelaide United as the goals have also flowed in these comprehensive victories.

These wins will have come as huge relief for Western United manager, Mark Rudan, who had previously witnessed his side fail to win any of their preceding four matches in the Australian top flight, having lost three of these last four with defeats against Adelaide United 4-3, Brisbane Roar 1-0 and a 2-0 loss against Wellington Phoenix.

Western United know that they can put pressure on the top six with a win over Melbourne Victory this Saturday though, and their case is strengthened by the fact that they’ve beaten Victory in the previous two encounters with 3-1 and 3-2 wins respectively
