Match Preview & Team News

The new A-League season kicks off with a mouth-watering derby on Saturday as fierce Melbourne rivals are set to come across each other in the very opening round. Both teams have seen plenty of changes in between two seasons. The most recognizable ones are those on the bench as new managers are about to lead them in the 2019/20 campaign.

The Big V, who were slightly more successful last season when they featured the play-offs semi-final, will enter the first A-League season ever without Kevin Muscat in their ranks. The former player and the head coach was overtaken by Marco Kurz who has a very talented group of players on disposal.

The German manager has top-notch attackers in his ranks. Robbie Kruse and Andrew Nabbout are proven A-League quality, while the front line will be stronger for the Swedish international Ola Toivonen. Melbourne may have been eliminated in the last 16 round of the FFA Cup to Newcastle Jets, jut they will still enter the season opener high on confidence after three impressive displays in consecutive wins in friendlies against Port Melbourne, Dandenong Thunder, and Perth Glory.

Nonetheless, the Citizens will go into the match in even higher spirits. They’ve made it to the FFA Cup final after a demolishing 1-5 victory over Brisbane Strikers. Forward Jamie MacLaren announced another strong campaign with a brace on the occasion. Melbourne City will also begin the season under the guidance of a new manager as Frenchman Erick Mombaerts took charge.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

The visitors enjoyed an amazing spell of form in the pre-season. However, Melbourne Victory have more quality in their ranks and we expect them to prevail here. The home win is the main pick at the odds of 5/4.

Goals Market Prediction

Each of the last four head to head meetings between the two sides saw goals scored at both ends. We will go for such a scenario here as well at the odds of 8/13.
