MATCH SUMMARY

 

No end in sight for Glory. They have been absolutely battered over the past fortnight with hidings from Sydney FC, Adelaide and a 2-nil loss to City earlier in the week – the latter two of those matches being at home. Their injury crisis hasn’t got much better and they face a Victory outfit that will be seething after having Rhys Williams sent off early in their brave, but ultimately, fruitless trip to Wellington which resulted in a 2-1 loss to the cellar dwellars.

 

 

3 KEY POINTS

 

1. PERTH has lost three straight games and been outscored 11-nil during that span

 

2. KOSTA BARBAROUSES has scored three goals in the past five games

 

3. PERTH has conceded nearly double the amount of away goals than any other team (2.5 avg)

 

 

THE HISTORY

 

VICTORIOUS

 

Perth’s last win in Melbourne against the Victory was three years ago

 

Besart Berisha has scored in six straight games against Perth

 

Victory’s win against Perth in November was its second straight against Perth after having won just once in their past six clashes

 

 

Win-Draw-Win

 

MELBOURNE VICTORY

 

Perth is a mess at the moment and although we gave them the benefit of the doubt earlier in the week against Melbourne City, we won’t be doing that here, especially on the road. Kevin Muscat’s outfit will be determined to put their loss to the Phoenix behind them and get back to winning ways in front of the Melbourne faithful at AAMI Park.

 

 

HALF-FULL DOUBLE

 

DRAW / MELBOURNE VICTORY

 

The congested schedule will probably see both sides a little weary so we think most of the scoring will be done in the second half

 

 

FIRST GOALSCORER

 

BESART BERISHA

 

The A-league’s all-time leading scorer has a knack of finding the back of the net when playing Perth so he is the obvious choice in this market

 

 

TOTAL GOALS OVER OR UNDER

 

OVER 2.5

 

Perth has been conceding goals like they’re going out of fashion so this one could get ugly.
