Melbourne City FC vs Perth Glory Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Melbourne City’s poor form extended with a 3-1 loss against Brisbane Roar. The home team made the most out of the mistakes made by a couple of City players, as they raced to a 2-0 lead inside the first half following goals from Avram Papadopoulos and Eric Bautheac. City started the second half well and pulled one back through Stefan Mauk, but a late second goal from Papadopoulos confirmed to the victory for the home team. Perth Glory fell to a second consecutive loss after being beaten 2-0 by Melbourne Victory. It was a strong performance from the away team, who scored through Besart Berisha and Leroy George in the second half. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Perth Glory, surprisingly, have a strong record against Melbourne City after winning three out of the last four meetings. In order to witness a City victory in this fixture, one has to go back to April 2016. Yet, Michael Valkanis’ outfit are better placed due to home advantage and slightly better form. The mistakes committed by the team led to the loss against Brisbane, but there was enough in the way of performance to suggest a victory for City in this game. The four home games for City have produced an average of just one goal per match. Melbourne City have struggled in front of goal with the team not scoring more than 1.5 goals in four out of the last five league matches. Even with Perth Glory’s defensive woes, I would back Melbourne City to score under 1.5 goals.

Melbourne City FC Preview

Melbourne City are also going through a terrible patch of form with no wins in the last three league matches. As a result, City are in danger of being cut off from the top two positions. City may be only one point behind Newcastle Jets and three behind the Sydney, but both teams have a considerably better form than Michael Valkanis’ team. The goals have been the biggest problem for City in pursuit of the A-league 2017-18 title. The team has averaged just over per game after managing nine in the first seven matches. Ross McCormack is the top scorer at Melbourne City with four goals in six games.

Bruno Fornaroli (malleolar) is the only player on the sidelines for City.

Perth Glory Preview

Perth Glory have suffered an alarming dip in form over the last few weeks. Their only solace appeared to be home form after back-to-back wins at the nib stadium, but even that has been taken out of the window by Melbourne Victory. Three defeats in the last four league matches puts Perth Glory in a difficult spot, as their confidence has hit a rock bottom. The club has now been elevated to the position of being the worst defence in the A-league 2017-18 season with 14 goals conceded in the first seven matches of the season. At the other end of the pitch, Perth have scored only eight goals with Adam Taggart as the top scorer with three goals in five appearances.

Perth Glory manager Kenny Lowe will have a fully fit squad at his disposal.
