Melbourne City to Win

Despite being on the road, Melbourne City are favourites to take home the three points on offer and with good reason. They have played two games fewer than their rivals but have a three-point advantage at the top of A-League rankings. With Perth on a five-match winless run and the visitors unbeaten in the same period, Patrick Kisnorbo's men should be able to build their lead after the trip to Perth.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Akin to sister club Manchester City, Melbourne City like to play expansive football. Their approach to the game has proven to be successful, boasting of the best goalscoring record in Australian top-flight football. They have averaged 3.4 goals per game this season, the same amount Perth Glory have managed. With both sides showing a penchant for scoring and the hosts conceding goals with ease, the Over 2.5 is a very likely outcome.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Barring their 0-0 draw to Macarthur, Peth have managed to get on the scoreboard in four of their five home engagements but have been let down by their defence. A similar outcome is expected as Melbourne make the trip to HBF Park. The Glory forward have enough experience and explosiveness amongst them to trouble the scorers, a trait they share with their rivals on Wednesday.

Perth Glory vs Melbourne City: Team News and Match Preview

Perth Glory

Richard Garcia has failed to get the most out of the Glory squad which finished sixth in A-League last campaign. Perth are struggling at the bottom of the points table but have three games in hand. However, the contest for play-off spots is tough with Brisbane Roar having momentum on their side. They have a tough task on their hands to tackle the challenge of Melbourne City, the best team in the league, not if Bruno Fornaroli has anything to say about it. The Uruguayan forward has eight goals and two assists to his name and can turn the tide of any fixture.

Melbourne City

The City finished runners-up last campaign after a late slump and Patrick Kisnorbo is not leaving anything to chance. His squad are the best in Australian top-flight football with room to spare. Not only do they have the best defensive record but also boast of the best-attacking unit in the league. While Craig Noone can be attributed for creating magic from the middle of the park, they are riding the exceptional form of Jamie Maclaren. The Australian forward has bagged 20 goals and five assists from 18 league outings and recently scored five in the Melbourne derby against Victory.
