Sydney FC vs. Melbourne Victory football match of Australian A-League on March 20

On March 20, "Sydney" and "Melbourne Victory" will play in the Australian A-League at "Leichhardt" stadium. Will the favorite continue their ascent to the top of the standings? See the answer in our forecast.

Sydney FC

After a series of unsuccessful games, "Sydney" is gradually beginning to remember that they won the champion title last year. After all, it is not appropriate for a current triumphant to be somewhere around the Top-6. In terms of results, March turns out to be productive - seven points gained out of nine possible and the fifth place in the standings with claims for something more.

But in all fairness, it still should be noted that the rivals of Steve Corica's guys were not from the category of giants. "Brisbane Roar" (1:1) are now full of problems, "Western United" (2:0) are not very stable, and are inferior in class, and "Newcastle Jets" (2:1) are In the penultimate position.

Upcoming Predictions for Football

Melbourne Victory

"Melbourne Victory" has been disgraced for the second year in a row, although last season the team took part in the Champions League. But now under Grant Brebner’s leadership, they are not even close to the Champions League. For the start, they at least need to leave the last place with seven points in the asset after eleven matches played.

It is very difficult to single out anything good in the guests' play, because they have won only one victory in the last seven matches, beating only "Wellington Phoenix" (2:0). And if with "Newcastle Jets" (0:1), "Western United" (3:4), "Sydney Wanderers" (0:2), and "Adelaide United" they still managed to fight or something like that, then "Brisbane Roar" (2:5) and "Melbourne City" (0:6) did not hesitate and threw a full bag of goals to the team.

All predictions for Football


  • Five previous head-to-head meetings certainly ended in favor of today's hosts.
  • "Victory" is the only club to have never won on an opponent's field - just one point in four games.

Our Prediction

"Sydney" must play with confidence since it is difficult to imagine how "Melbourne" defenders will deal with the champion's formidable attack. The class difference between the clubs is enormous.

The effectiveness of the confrontation will depend solely on the hosts. They may score as many goals as they want. The probability of such a turn of events, in our opinion, is the highest.

Our forecast is that "Sydney" will win with a handicap (-1.5) with odds of 2.41 on 1xbet.
