Reason For Melbourne City vs Sydney FC Predictions

  • Sydney won just one of their last four matches.
  • Melbourne avoided defeat in four of their last five A-League fixtures.
  • Sydney drew 50% of their last four assignments.

Melbourne City to avoid defeat

Despite manager Steve Corica’s claims to the contrary this week, Hyundai A-League Premiers Sydney FC seem have to taken their foot off the gas in recent weeks with their place at the summit of the table secure.

More evidence to support that was supplied when Sydney were turned over by Newcastle Jets in a surprise 2-1 defeat last week – a reverse that followed a run of two draws and one win from their previous trio of assignments.

Coincidentally, their opponents this week – Melbourne City – were also beaten 2-1 by the Jets in their last outing, though Erick Mombaerts’ side had been finding form before that with three wins from four.

With Sydney cranking their intensity down a few notches with the campaign’s Final Series on the horizon, Melbourne can take advantage, and City are favoured in the double chance market on Saturday.

Having drawn two of their last four A-League fixtures, Sydney have shown they can dig something out despite not being at their fluid best however, and our correct score prediction of 1-1 anticipates a similar outcome here.
