Victory are unbeaten in their last eight clashes with Sydney and that run could continue on Saturday.
Sydney v Melbourne Victory- Saturday 08:50, BT Sport 1
Sydney continued their perfect start to the season as they beat the Jets 2-0 and they’re yet to concede a goal in their four games so far. Victory have also won their last two, thumping Wellington 6-1 at home last time out to move up to 3rd, although they’re already five points behind leaders Sydney.
Sydney’s 4-0 win on the opening day in the derby was undoubtedly impressive but their last three games have been against last season’s bottom three so we’re not getting too carried away just yet. Indeed, they’ve beaten the Mariners in their only home game so far and three of their five home victories last term came against the Jets and Mariners, whilst they won just two of nine against sides that finished above them.
Victory have managed a draw at Brisbane and won at Adelaide in their two away games this season and though they struggled on the road last term, they did beat Sydney 4-2. Indeed, Victory won all three of their meetings with Sydney last term and are unbeaten in their last eight clashes with them and so we’re backing them on the Double Chance at 1.95.
