With their impressive run of results coming to an end with the narrow defeat to Perth Glory, Melbourne Victory will get another chance to close the gap behind the leading pack when they take on first-placed Western Sydney Wanderers.
The visitors recovered well from back to back defeats to record successive wins over Central Coast Mariners and Melbourne City and are now priced at 9/5 to beat the other Melbourne side.
The hosts are severely weakened as Fahid Ben Khalfallah and Rashid Mahazi both miss out through suspension, with captain Carl Valeri ruled out for the season.
Meanwhile, Wanderers coach Tony Popovic will have fully fit squad to select from, with Federico Piovaccari among those to return.
Considering that the hosts will be missing three key players and that Wanderers are in better form at the moment, we see good value in 9/5 odds offered on away win, and we recommend signing up with bet365 if you don’t already own an account.
