Macarthur odds: 31/20 (2.55) – 38.8%

Draw odds: 3/1 (4.00) – 27.0%

Melbourne City odds: 19/10 (2.90) – 34.2%

As you can see from the odds in our Macarthur vs Melbourne City prediction, the Bulls are considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners, with a sturdy 38.8% win probability at 31/20 (2.55). However, we believe that Melbourne City are far more likely to make something happen at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, despite the bookies giving Maclaren and his colleagues a 34.2% win probability. One thing is certain, we will see over 2.5 goals. The odds are valued at 7/10 (1.70), giving our key Macarthur vs Melbourne City prediction a sturdy 58.85% chance of success.

Macarthur vs Melbourne City Lineups & Team News

Macarthur

The Bulls’ unbeaten run came to an abrupt end on the 18th of February when coach Mile Sterjovski’s players got beaten 1-2 at home by a superb Wellington Phoenix side. Furthermore, the Bulls also got defeated in their last official game, which was an AFC Cup zonal final versus Central Coast Mariners.

Predicted lineup – Kurto (GK), Adamson, Uskok, Jurman, Vujica, Drew, Hollman, Lewis, Oliveira, Davila & Germain

Melbourne City

A rather lackluster display by Hearts in last week’s match versus Sydney is what we saw from coach Aurelio Vidmar’s players on the 24th of February. Jamie Maclaren and his colleagues barely managed to get back in the game via a 61st-minute Marco Tilio goal, but we are sure that coach Vidmar will make some changes ahead of the kick-off versus the Bulls.

Predicted lineup – Young (GK), Godoy, Good, Souprayen, Talbot, Nabbout, Ugarkovic, Jeggo, Tilio, Leckie & Maclaren

Player to Watch: Jamie Maclaren

Hearts’ key striker hasn’t been as productive in the opposition’s penalty boxes this season as he was during the 2022/23 campaign. However, he still has seven goals to his name, which is also a compelling argument behind our Macarthur vs Melbourne City predictions.

Sadly, Jamie couldn’t make it into coach Graham Arnold’s team for the AFC Asian Cup games for Australia, but there’s only one way to prove your manager wrong – perform your heart out and make him regret his decision. Such will be the case on the 1st of March, as Jamie manages to thrash the Bulls’ defense.
