Melbourne Victory vs Adelaide United Predictions

  • Melbourne Victory are unbeaten in five of their six A-League games.
  • Five of Melbourne’s A-League games produced over 2.5 total goals.
  • Six of the last eight H2HS in Melbourne saw at least three goals.
  • A league-high 11 of Adelaide’s 13 away games last term produced at least three goals.

The Original Rivalry could ignite Adelaide’s season

Melbourne Victory have made a blistering start to this A-League campaign and as such, they set the early pace after losing just one of their opening six games.

Prolific in attack, Melbourne have bagged 1.8 goals per-match on average, which seems to have been necessary considering that only two other sides had conceded more goals than their eight ahead of this round. Consequently, this looks like a recipe for an exciting clash!

Contrarily, last season’s A-League play-off semi-finalists Adelaide have made a poor start to proceedings, but there is no game like the ‘Original Derby’ against rivals Melbourne to get the blood pumping.

Melbourne’s solid start could continue

While the visitors will be keen to notch their first away league win of the season, this may not be the place to get it. Notably, Adelaide conceded at least twice in four of their last trips to Melbourne and if they do so again, they will need to be at the races themselves.

Overall, I think that this could be a typically entertaining derby game and as such, the main prediction will be over 2.5 total goals. I think a 2-1 Melbourne victory in the correct score market also has a good chance, given their markedly stronger start than their rivals this term.
