Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365
In what is already being billed as a mouthwatering encounter at the start of the new A-League campaign, title contenders Western Sydney and Melbourne City will meet on Friday morning.
Starting with the hosts, suffering their first defeat since opening the new A-League campaign away at Western United last week, there is no doubt that Western Sydney will be glad to make a return to the Bankwest Stadium on Friday. Snatching a 1-0 win over bitter rivals Sydney last month, Markus Babbel’s men have tasted defeat just once on home soil since the 1st of February. There is no doubt that Western Sydney will also be boosted by their most recent meeting against the league leaders. When the two sides met back in March, the former Liverpool man saw his side land a stunning 3-0 victory.
As for the visitors, eventually slumping to a dramatic 4-3 loss away at Brisbane last week, Head Coach Erick Mombaerts will be calling for an immediate response from his side. With their buffer at the top of the A-League standings now cut to just a single point, the former champions also have a growing reputation for their high-scoring encounters. Along with playing out a seven-goal thriller on the road last time out, Melbourne have seen each of their previous five matches on the bounce finish with both teams finding the net and over 2.5 goals at full-time. In what has all the makings of another dramatic matchup on Friday, we’re backing both teams to once again find the net.
