      Melbourne City vs Melbourne Victory Predictions

      Melbourne City started their season very poorly and won just one of their opening five matches in all competitions, losing four of their first eight.

      But they seem to be over that slump now and they come into this crucial derby clash having won three Hyundai A-League matches on the trot. Their scoring form has been incredibly during this run, with two 5-1 victories and a 4-0 hammering giving them a return of 14 goals in three matches.

      Their recent upturn in form has allowed them to overtake Melbourne Victory in the A-League table, with their 17 points seeing them sit in 3rd position, a point ahead of 4th placed Melbourne Victory.

      The Hyundai A-League champions Melbourne Victory started their season with a dominance that suggested they would lift the trophy again. They won seven of their opening nine games in all competitions, losing only once and lifting the FFA Cup in the process.

      But recent weeks have seen a massive collapse in form. They have lost their last three Hyundai A-League matches and failed to score in any of them.

      All of these matches have been away from home, and when you look at their away record you realise that they are severely missing something on the road. They have only won one of their six A-League matches on the road, losing four times and drawing once.

      Melbourne City will be raring to go coming into this derby day clash, and they will be confident of ending their three match losing streak against Melbourne Victory and extending their A-League winning streak.

      All of these three defeats against Melbourne Victory have been away from home, and they have actually won their last two derbies at the AAMI Park.

      This all makes odds of 11/8 for a Melbourne City Win on Saturday look excellent value for money, and I’m going for that along with a 2-0 correct score prediction at 14/1.
