Melbourne Victory vs Western Sydney Wanderers Tips 


Western Sydney will be looking to win their fourth straight match against Melbourne Victory, who have sacked their manager after last week’s 7-0 defeat.

I’m tipping over 2.5 goals and BTTS with Western Sydney to win.

  • Melbourne Victory have lost 7 of their last 9 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen over 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 matches (A-League).
  • Western Sydney have won their last 3 matches against Melbourne Victory (A-League).
  • Western Sydney have seen BTTS in their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Western Sydney have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 7 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Melbourne Victory have a 13-7 record against the Wanderers with four draws in 24 encounters. 

Western Sydney recorded a 2-0 win in their last meeting with the Victory. Midfielder Graham Dorrans opened the scoring with a penalty before striker Kwame Yeboah sealed the win with a late goal.

Melbourne Victory Form


Just as things started looking promising for the Victory, they crashed back down to earth. 

A 3-0 loss at home to rivals Sydney FC was followed by a spirit lifting 2-1 win against the Newcastle Jets away from home. 

Centre-back Dylan Ryan equalised just after half-time before young forward Lleyton Brooks won the match with his debut goal off the bench. 

But this high was short-lived as the four-time champions were battered 7-0 by Melbourne City in the derby.

Melbourne Victory Team News


In positive news for the Victory, midfielder Leigh Broxham and forward Rudy Gestede are a chance to return from respective hamstring and knee injuries. 

Socceroo Robbie Kruse is also in contention to return as well. 

Winger Marco Rojas is still sidelined with a broken ankle, while defender Ryan Shotton will also miss with a knee injury.

Following last week’s defeat, the club sacked head coach Grant Brebner. Ex-Blackburn coach Steve Kean will take over as the interim coach.

Western Sydney Wanderers Form


The Wanderers remain in sixth place after a solid month in the league. 

After conceding early, a double from winger Bruce Kamau saw the Wanderers steal a point from league leaders Central Coast in a 2-2 draw. 

Another draw followed with the Wanderers holding Adelaide to a 1-1 draw away from home. Striker Simon Cox equalised midway through the second half after the Reds shot out to an early lead.

Their luck would run out against Brisbane, with the Wanderers going down 2-1 at home.
