Top free betting tips and odds for Melbourne City vs Adelaide United

Melbourne City hosts the second leg of the semi-finals of the A-League against Adelaide United on Sunday, 22 May. The teams enter AAMI Park, following a 0-0 draw at the Reds’ home.

Melbourne City to triumph

Adelaide United had an incredible streak of six wins before the last game, playing the recent games consecutively at home. However, the Reds could manage only two victories in the last five away outings. On the other hand, Melbourne City aims to extend the sequence of six home league attempts, winning three of the last four. The heart also lost only once in the last nine home H2Hs against Adelaide United and won five in that course. So we expect City to take the advantage of their camping ground and confirm the name for the finals.

Accountability from both sets of scorers

Besides the previous meetings, the teams have displayed the pattern of BTTS outcome in the recent consecutive H2Hs. The Reds have been on the scoresheet in six of the last seven league attempts and City also managed to net the ball in all of the recent home outings of the A-league. Nevertheless, Heart would be determined to restrict the rivals to a low score, following the inability of scoring of Adelaide United in two of the last three away outings. But we will be backing for a BTTS pattern again in this duel.
