Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Adelaide United picked up the first win of the season by beating Brisbane Roar 2-1 during the weekend. It was a smash and grab victory for Adelaide, as late goals from Ryan Kitto and Johan Absalonsen produced a comeback victory. Brisbane had taken the lead after just eight minutes through Massimo Maccarone. Melbourne Victory’s poor start to the season continued with a 2-1 loss against rivals Melbourne City. Marcin Budzinski’s stunning striker opened the scoring in injury time of the first half, but Victory were level in the 55th minute through Leroy George. A brilliant counter-attack from Bruce Kamau led to the winner in the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Adelaide have surprisingly had a good record against Melbourne in recent meetings after picking up two wins in the last five. Melbourne Victory, though, have four wins in the last six, but their confidence levels are low after back-to-back defeats to start the new campaign. Adelaide have been going through a contrasting fortunes with the team managing a late win over Brisbane to pick up the first win. Home advantage will be a significant factor. Last season, four of the five league wins for Adelaide came at home. I would go with a win for Adelaide United. The first two matches have seen limited attacking impact from Melbourne Victory, but they are up against an Adelaide United team that could have easily conceded several goals in the first 80 minutes against Brisbane Roar. Victory’s attack should be reasonably good to take advantage of this defence. I see amazing value in backing both teams to score.

Adelaide United win – 13/8

Adelaide United Preview

Adelaide United are unbeaten after the first two matches, but manager Marco Kurz will be delighted the manner in which the first victory of the season was achieved. After having drawn the first match of the season, the club looked to be heading for a defeat only to come away with three points after two late goals. Kurz will undoubtedly be aiming for a clean sheet in the next league matches, and Adelaide have the opportunity to make up significant places in the table with the team at home in three out of the next four league matches.

Adelaide United are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into the game.

Melbourne Victory Preview

Melbourne Victory are looking to overturn a disappointing start to the A-League 2017-18 season. After losing the first two matches of the season, Victory are in danger of not even coming close to the achievements of last season – when the team managed to reach the finals where they lost to Sydney on penalties. Kevin Muscat will point out to his team already playing Sydney and City in the first two games as being the reasons for the poor start. The test does not get any easier with Victory on the road for the next two A-league matches. Leroy George has scored the club’s only goal of the season.

There are no injury or suspension issues for manager Kevin Muscat coming into the game.
