Western United vs Melbourne Victory Tips


Goals have become a feature in this fixture. Western United have bullied the Victory since joining the competition, having won four of their five encounters.

I’m backing a Western United win and over 3.5 goals.

  • Western United have won 4 of their last 5 matches against Melbourne Victory (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have lost their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Melbourne Victory have seen over 3.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches against Western United (A-League).

Head to Head


Western United have a 4-0 record against Melbourne Victory with one draw in five encounters. 

Their last meeting saw Western United record an emphatic 4-3 win. Midfielder Steven Lustica stole the points for the green-and-black after he netted a 94th minute winner.

Western United Form


Western United are in desperate need of points after losing their last five matches. 

Following a 5-0 defeat to Western Sydney, the side’s fortunes did not change as they went down 3-0 to Perth Glory.

The game was over by half-time with Western conceding twice inside the opening 20 minutes and failed to lift to the challenge. 

A controversial defeat against Sydney followed in Ballarat, with the Sky Blues earning a contentious penalty in the second half which decided the match. 

Western United’s fifth straight loss came against Wellington in a 3-0 defeat in New Zealand. Despite starting well and only going into the break a goal down, a poor second half saw Western United crumble and fall further away from the top six.

Western United Team News


Defender Aaron Calver is out for the remainder of the season with an adductor problem, as is Josh Risdon with a recurring foot injury.

Melbourne Victory Form


Season’s end cannot come sooner for the Victory.

After a promising performance against Perth, the Victory returned to square one following a 3-1 loss to Macarthur. Forward Elvis Kamsoba managed to give the Victory a glimmer of hope late with a goal, though was too little too late. 

A 2-0 loss to rivals Sydney FC followed away from home, with the Victory conceding either side of half time to make it a hattrick of defeats against the Sky Blues this season. 

A return home failed to change much as the four-time champions suffered a 1-0 defeat to Adelaide. While the Victory created several half-chances throughout the match, they were unable to break through a stubborn Reds defence.

Melbourne Victory Team News


Defender Nick Ansell is unavailable with a hamstring injury, while winger Marco Rojas will not return this season from an ankle problem.

Socceroo Robbie Kruse also remains on the sideline with a groin injury.
