Melbourne Victory vs Sydney: Top Free Betting Tips

On the back of a five-match winless streak, Melbourne Victory go up against Sydney FC  at home for the next A-League outing on Thursday, 26 January. The Sky Blues have also struggled this season and followed a winless pattern ahead of this game.

Match Result Prediction: Sydney to Win

Melbourne Victory has lost four of the last five meetings in the league and the same is true for the home duels as well. On the contrary, Sydney has also registered only one victory in the last five duels, losing three of them. But the Sky Blues have played two undefeated games in the last three visits with one victory. The visiting side has also won three of the last four away duels against Melbourne Victory while losing zero. So we see the Sky Blues find their winning form in this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Melbourne Victory has found the back of the net in three of the last five meetings while allowing goals in all of them. On the other hand, Sydney FC also had a scoring string in the away outings before the last visit and scored in consecutive eight games. The Sky Blues have also rattled the net in all of the last five H2Hs with Melbourne Victory. Dark Blues helped the BTTS pattern in the previous three meetings with Sydney successively and we expect the same outcome in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-2 to Sydney

Melbourne Victory couldn’t score more than once in any of the last seven outings. Nevertheless, Sydney FC have rattled the net twice per game in two of the previous three away attempts. The Sky Blues have also scored at least twice in all of the last four meetings at the home of Dark Blues. Adding more, Melbourne Victory allowed three goals in the previous league duel. Hence, we predict a lead of 1-2 in the favour of Sydney.

Melbourne Victory Preview

After only a draw, Dark Blues returned to their losing sequence with a  3-1 scoreline against Perth Glory. The team has proved the worst side of the new campaign so far and stands at the last with only three wins in 12 attempts. Left-winger Nani will be absent from this game due to a cruciate ligament rupture.

Sydney FC Preview

The Sky Blues conceded the only goal in the 86th minute of the last game against Western United to feature a 1-0 defeat. Sydney has registered a total of only four wins and two draws in the 13 duels and are present in the tenth position. The manager Steve Corica will have a fully healthy player to make a selection for this game.
