Rockdale City Suns
    Melbourne Victory FC

      Tip Reasoning

      Rockdale City Suns will probably be an unfamiliar name to many of you. They currently ply their trade in the New South Wales Premier League, the highest league in the state.

      This league is currently in progress, unlike the Hyundai A-League. They have played already completed the 22 match regular season, with the playoffs left to decide the overall champions.

      Unfortunately for Rockdale, they didn’t make the cut. They finished in 6th position in the league, 2 points outside of the playoff qualification position.

      Their 4-0 loss against Bonyrigg White Eagles on the final day of the regular season sealed their fate, and made it 2 losses and 3 wins in their last 5 matches in all competitions.

      The disappointment of not making the playoffs would be forgiven if they could defeat the Hyundai A-League champions in the FFA Cup, but that will not be an easy task.

      Melbourne Victory secured the top spot of the league late on last season in what was a very tight title race between a number of teams. They then went on to win the playoffs to become the Hyundai A-League Premiers and Champions.

      With the league not kicking off again until October, the FFA Cup is their only source of competitive football at the moment.

      They dispatched of the Balmain Tigers in the last round with a comprehensive 6-0 victory, and their 1-0 win over Brisbane Roar in a friendly made it 7 wins on the trot for Victory, and 9 wins from their last 10 games.

      Melbourne Victory will be looking forward to the match fitness as well as the football on Tuesday, so I don’t think that a weakened team will be put out against their small opponents.

      I’m expecting a big win from the A-League side on Tuesday, and odds of 1.875 for a Melbourne Victory -2.5 Asian Handicap look like they offer a good amount of value.
