Melbourne Victory vs Melbourne City Tips

Melbourne Victory suffered a hammer-blow last weekend against Western United. Rivals Melbourne City can add to their problems with another Jamie Maclaren-inspired win.

  • Melbourne Victory have lost 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne City have won their last 2 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne City's Jamie Maclaren has scored 7 goals in his last 6 matches (A-League).

Melbourne Victory Form

Melbourne Victory lost a rollercoaster game 4-3 to 10-man Western United last Saturday, conceding five minutes into added time.

Victory had led through Callum McManaman only to fall 3-1 behind. Jacob Butterfield and Rudy Gestede pulled Victory level, only for Victor Sanchez to win it in the 95th minute.

It was a fourth defeat in their last five matches for Grant Brebner's side, who had hoped to have turned a corner with a 2-0 win over Wellington Phoenix.

Prior to defeating Phoenix, Victory lost 5-2 to Brisbane Roar, 2-0 to Western Sydney Wanderers and 1-0 to Newcastle Jets. They have now lost six of their nine games played this season.

Defenders Dylan Ryan and Ryan Shotton and midfielder Marco Rojas all missed the Western United game through injury.

Nick Ansell is set to return to the squad for the derby to give injury-hit Victory a boost.

Melbourne City Form

Melbourne City have got their season up and running with back-to-back wins over Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers.

Patrick Kisnorbo's side won a Grand Final rematch with two Jamie Maclaren goals and an Adrian Luna strike seeing off Sydney FC 3-2.

Maclaren was also at the double on Tuesday against Western Sydney as his two goals secured a 2-0 win. 

City lost three in a row when going down 3-1 at home to Perth Glory, 3-2 away at Central Coast Mariners and 1-0 away to Newcastle Jets.
