Melbourne Victory vs Perth Glory Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Melbourne Victory went two games without a win after a 2-1 loss against Wellington Phoenix. Even though Rhys Williams was sent off with a straight red card in the eighth minute, Victory managed to get their noses in front through Costa Barbarouses in the 40th minute. Victory, though, were unprepared for the brilliant comeback from Wellington Phoenix in the second half – two goals from Roy Krishna and Mark Milligan (own goal). Perth Glory fell to a third consecutive loss after being beaten 2-0 by Melbourne City. Ross McCormack was once again the hero of the day after coming in with a brilliant freekick in the ninth minute to open the scoring. He later converted a penalty in the 38th minute to send Perth Glory to another defeat.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Victory may have been unable to win the last two games, but Kevin Muscat’s team come into the game with a serious advantage in their ranks. Perth Glory have been losing at half-time and full-time in the last three league matches, while the team were in a similar position when they last travelled to take on Victory. I would choose a win at half-time and full-time for Melbourne Victory. Besart Berisha has enjoyed playing against Perth Glory after managing to come up with the opening goal in the last three meetings. His overall goal record against this opponent stands at 14 goals in 18 A-League games. In fact, Besart Berisha has been unable to score just twice in the last 10 appearances against this team. I would back Besart Berisha to score anytime.

Melbourne Victory win at half-time and full-time – 13/10

Besart Berisha to score anytime – 4/5

Melbourne Victory Preview

Melbourne Victory will have reasons to be concerned about their recent form, as the run of consecutive victories have been halted abruptly. A return of just one point from the last two games has allowed the likes of Western Sydney to move closer in the A-League 2017-18 table. Victory have struggled as a result of their continued inability to keep clean sheets. Apart from the clean sheet in the Melbourne derby and against Perth Glory, Melbourne Victory have been unable to manage shutouts this season. As a result, the club has conceded close to twice the number of goals as table leaders Sydney even with the season only 15 matchdays old.

Melbourne Victory Team News

Melbourne Victory manager Kevin Muscat only has Mitch Austin (cruciate ligament) on the sidelines.

Perth Glory Preview

Perth Glory have gone out of the top six positions going to a disastrous run of form over the last few weeks. Three consecutive defeats and no goals scored in these games make for a bad reading indeed. There is now a greater risk of this form turning the entire season upside down for Kenny Lowe and his team. Four of the next five league matches are on the road. Even though the team are no strangers to getting away victories – after having beaten the likes of Brisbane, the recent run of form places serious doubts upon Perth Glory. Andy Keogh and Adam Taggart remain as the top scorers at the club with three goals each.

Perth Glory Team News

Kenny Lowe does not have injury or suspension worries coming into the game.
