Both Melbourne teams have not been at their best over the last couple of months but it will be the Victory that will get the better of their crosstown rival with Bruno Fornaroli being the difference in this match. The Socceroos striker has found his form again finally after a real lull after returning from the Asian Cup and he will break this game, while City continue to struggle at the other end of the pitch.

Besides a surprise 7-0 drubbing of Western Sydney, city have scored just 4 goals in their previous 7 matches and have been held scoreless in 3 of those games. The Victory have been fairly consistent defensively this season and will once again contain the city attack as they have in their first two games this season.

I will be on a win for the Victory and Bruno Fornaroli to score anytime and win it for Melbourne.

  • City has been held scoreless in 3 of their past 7 games.
  • Melbourne has scored 2 goals in each of their past 4 matches.
  • Bruno Fornaroli has 4 goals in his past 3 games for the Victory.
