Melbourne Victory Form


Melbourne Victory sit one point off the bottom of the table with one match remaining. 

The Victory put up a spirited performance against reigning champions Sydney FC but suffered their third loss to the Sky Blues this season in a 2-0 defeat. 

A return home to face Adelaide followed, with the Reds escaping with a narrow 1-0 win. Victory forward Elvis Kamsoba had several chances to equalise throughout the match, after Adelaide scored just before half-time.

The four-time champions finally tasted a win after seven matches, when they defeated Western United 6-1.  The Victory jumped out to a 4-0 lead at half-time with Kamsoba netting a brace while forwards Rudy Gestede and Jake Brimmer also scored.

Melbourne City Form


The newly crowned premiers have not missed a beat since claiming their inaugural league trophy. 

They were forced to share the points at home with Wellington in a thrilling 2-2 draw. After falling behind, Japanese midfielder Naoki Tsubaki equalised before striker Jamie Maclaren added a second midway through the second half. 

City then clinched the premiership in a 1-0 win over Central Coast. A 59th minute goal from ex-Bolton winger Craig Noone proved to be the difference as City withstood several late charges from their opposition. 

With the premiership clinched, City rested several players for their trip to Brisbane. The inexperienced side went down 3-0 away from home, with City conceding two penalties in the match. 

Their match against Newcastle was postponed due to Victoria entering another lockdown. 

Melbourne City Team News


City will be without star striker Jamie Maclaren, defender Curtis Good and goalkeeper Tom Glover who will all be out on international duty.

These players will also miss the upcoming finals series.
