Goals should be on the agenda in Friday night’s A-League match up in Melbourne.
There’s just two games left in the regular season and whilst Adelaide have no hope of making the playoffs after winning the title last term, City are in danger of losing a home playoff tie after back-to-back defeats. Their lead over the Wanderers in 5th is down to two points and so a win here would give them a nice cushion going into their final regular season game.
City continue to be vulnerable defensively as they’ve shipped six in their last two and have conceded at least twice in seven of their last nine. Despite that, they’ve won three of their last five at home, with runaway leaders Sydney the only side to beat them in that time. Furthermore, they’ve won six of their last seven at home to sides below them, leading at the break in each of these victories, though they kept only two clean sheets.
Adelaide picked up only one win from their first 14 games but they’ve picked up seven points from their last three to move off the foot of the table. However, their only away win came at bottom of the league side Central Coast and they’re record is just W0-D1-L4 when travelling to top-four sides. But they have managed to score in three of their last four on the road and in a 2-1 defeat in this fixture earlier on in the season. We can see something similar happening here and so we’re backing Melbourne City to Win and Both Teams to Score.
