Melbourne City odds: 41/50 (1.82) – 54.7%

Draw odds: 17/5 (4.40) – 19.0%

Adelaide United odds: 27/10 (3.70) – 26.3%

Over 1.5 First-Half Goals is a very plausible outcome at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium this week, as the odds at 11/10 (2.10) imply a solid 47.62% chance of success. We are surprised to see Melbourne City be considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners, with a whopping 54.7% win probability ahead of the kick-off. After all, Adelaide United haven’t lost a game against Hearts in almost three years.

Melbourne City vs Adelaide United Lineups & Team News

Melbourne City

After a solid run of games, Hearts’ positive performance came to an abrupt end when coach Vidmar’s players got beaten 0-1 at home. Western Sydney Wanderers made the most of the few good chances they had and rightfully earned the three points, which is surely good news for our Melbourne City vs Adelaide United prediction.

Predicted lineup – Young (GK), Galloway, Good, Hall, Talbot, Lopane, Sakhi, Natel, Arslan, Mazzeo & Maclaren

Adelaide United

Coach Carl Veart’s side has lost only one game in the last five A-League matches. If that’s not a performance to commend, we don’t know what is. With five victories, three draws, and five losses this season, we are sure that Adelaide United’s players will do their best to pile on the misery against Melbourne City this week.

Predicted lineup – Delianov (GK), Bovalina, Popovic, Isaias, Lopez, Tunnicliffe, Yull, Clough, Halloran, Irankunda & Ibusuki

Player to Watch: Jamie Maclaren

No one should be surprised by the fact that we have Jamie Maclaren down as the player to watch in our Melbourne City vs Adelaide United prediction. Hearts’ captain scooped the Top Goalscorer Award in the 2022/23 season after a long and tiresome chase with ex-Central Coast Mariners’ star Jason Cummings.

With seven goals this season, Jamie is proving to be one of the key players for the home side once more. Will he be able to put on a show at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium? We’ll have to wait and see.
