Head to Head


South Melbourne have won their last two matches against Heidelberg United. A 3-1 triumph in February 2022 for South Melbourne was the last time the sides played. 

Heidelberg United Form


Heidelberg come into this one on the back of a 2-2 draw with Eastern Lions. This stalemate has seen United move onto 16 points, but it was a disappointing result nonetheless. Eastern Lions have only won once this season, while this was only their second draw of the campaign. 

United will be desperate to get back to winning ways this week, but any battle with South Melbourne will likely end in defeat for Heidelberg considering the form of the two sides. 

South Melbourne Form 


South Melbourne sit at the top of the table with 34 points from their 13 games. 11 wins have come alongside one draw and one defeat, and South Melbourne are currently enjoying a four match winning run that has allowed them to open up a six point lead at the top of the table. 

With South Melbourne desperate to solidify their place at the top of the table, they will target this match as one they must win against a Heidelberg side that are struggling this season.
