Macarthur to Win

The Bulls ended their five-match winless run on the road against Melbourne Victory in their last outing. They will be unfazed by the struggling side in the comfort of home surroundings in search of a second spot placement on the A-League points table. The odds are in Macarthur's favour as Victory make the trip to Campbelltown Stadium after suffering three successive defeats on the road.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Owing to their poor defensive record, Victory have averaged 3.6 goals per match in the 2021 A-League campaign. Couple this with Macarthur's decent 2.6 goals per match, and the ingredients for a high-scoring affair are in order. With both sides seeing over three goals in three of their last five games, the odds of the Over 2.5 coming true are high.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Melbourne Victory have struggled on the road, scoring a paltry four goals in their last five away trips but these strikes were spread across three games. The Bulls have shown a tendency to lose focus at the back, conceding in three successive home fixtures. In their recent meeting, the Boys in Blue showed tenacity belying their struggle for goals this season. They were the first ones to strike when the two sides met last week but left their lead slip to eventually succumb to a 1-2 defeat.

Macarthur vs Melbourne Victory: Team News and Match Preview


The Bulls have performed beyond expectations in their debut A-League season. Ante Milicic's men are on the horizon to claim the coveted second place and automatic qualification for the play-offs. Unbeaten in their last four games and with a recent victory over the Boys in Blue, they will fancy their chances at the Campbelltown Stadium. Veteran midfielder Markel Susaeta came to Macarthur's rescue last time around and more of the same will be expected of him in the return fixture.

Melbourne Victory

When all is said and done, Victory would love to put this season's toils behind them. Steve Kean's men have struggled to score and allowed their rivals to make a mockery of the scoreline at their expense. Burundi forward Elvis Kamsoba scored his second goal of the season against the same rivals, while Rudy Gestede got on the scoreboard against Perth Glory. Kean will want his two forwards to build on their performances to ensure a positive end to the 2021 A-League campaign.
