Elimination Final: Adelaide United vs. Melbourne City Preview
Can Melbourne City overcome their road struggles to beat Adelaide at Coopers?
Adelaide shape as a good bet in their Elimination Final against Melbourne City on Sunday.
The Reds have been pretty solid at home this season with six wins and four draws from 14 matches with an unbeaten run of five games in front of the Coopers Stadium faithful.
Melbourne City, while coming into this game off the back of a 5-0 win over the hapless Mariners, have been terrible on the road this season with just four wins, ranking them seventh in the league for points earned away from home (14).
Although Warren Joyce’s men have a pretty good record against Adelaide and are unbeaten in seven games, they simply haven’t shown enough in 2018/19 to indicate they are good enough to go to Coopers and take the points.
Don’t expect goals galore in this game though. Melbourne City’s 39 for the campaign was only better than Brisbane (38), Adelaide (31) and Central Coast (31) so we’ll definitely be going the unders in the Goal total market.
Tip: Under 2.5 Goals
