Melbourne Victory vs Adelaide United Tips

Melbourne Victory have lost their last four and have a poor recent record against Adelaide. The Reds have their sights set on a top-two finish ahead of the finals series. 

I’m tipping over 2.5 goals and Adelaide to win.

  • Melbourne Victory have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have lost 5 of their last 7 home matches (A-League).
  • Adelaide United have seen over 3.5 goals in 4 of their last 7 away matches (A-League(.
  • Adelaide United have won 6 of their last 7 matches against Melbourne Victory (A-League).

Head to Head

Melbourne Victory have a 27-19 advantage in the head-to-head with 10 draws in 56 matches. 

Adelaide United picked up a 3-1 win in their last meeting. The Reds came from behind to record a big away win with captain Stefan Mauk netting a brace.

Melbourne Victory Form

Melbourne Victory will be hoping the season ends sooner rather than later after a disastrous campaign. 

The Victory’s trip to Perth was an unsuccessful one as they went down 2-1. Striker Rudy Gestede scored a late goal for the visitors, while Socceroo Robbie Kruse crucially missed a penalty in the first half. 

A 3-1 loss away to Macarthur followed. Forward Elvis Kamsoba scored his third goal of the season, but the Victory had no answers for the Bulls and striker Matt Derbyshire. 

The four-time champions suffered another defeat at the hands of Sydney FC.  The Sky Blues scored either side of half time to come away with a 2-0 win in the Big Blue.

Melbourne Victory Team News

Marco Rojas is out with an ankle injury, while the club mutually parted ways with defender Ryan Shotton during the week. 

Defenders Nick Ansell and Adama Traore have returned from suspension, while ex-Wigan winger Callum McManaman will also be available for selection.

Adelaide United Form

Adelaide United remain within touching distance of the top two on the table. 

The Reds suffered their biggest defeat of the season when they went down 4-1 to league leaders Melbourne City. Striker Ben Halloran scored Adelaide’s only goal as his side was humbled in Melbourne. 

Though a response was forthcoming as Adelaide saw off Brisbane at home with a 1-0 win. Winger Craig Goodwin scored the match-winning goal in the 23rd minute as the Reds picked up a much-needed win.

Despite opening the scoring in their next match against Perth through striker Kusini Yengi, Adelaide were unable to hold on. Two late goals from the Glory saw them steal the points at home.

Adelaide United Team News

Adelaide have done well to remain competitive despite an abundance of injuries. 

Goalkeeper Joe Gauci will miss with a quad injury, while forward Tomi Juric remains sidelined with a calf problem.
