Perth Glory odds: 59/20 (3.95) – 25.1%

Draw odds: 63/20 (4.15) – 20.0%

Melbourne City odds: 4/5 (1.80) – 54.9%

Despite having the home-field advantage at HBF Park, Perth Glory are the underdogs in this match, with barely a 25.1% win probability at 59/20 (3.95). Meanwhile, we have Melbourne City who are considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners. The 54.9% win probability proves that. Given all the injury issues for coach Alen Stajcic, there’s a 32.26% likelihood of us seeing over 2.5 Melbourne City goals this week.

Perth Glory vs Melbourne City Lineups & Team News

Perth Glory

With one win, one draw, and three matches lost, the Glory are rightfully sitting in 11th place, with only a five-point lead on lackluster Western United. Perth Glory don’t look up to par with what Melbourne City bring to the table, so we should have a one-sided game at HBF Park this week.

Predicted lineup – Sail (GK), Warland, Susnjar, Lachman, Koutroumbis, Bennie, Amini, Colli, Carluccio, Colakovski & Ivanovic

Melbourne City

Hearts’ 2023/24 A-League display has been somewhat disappointing for their fans, as we saw the team record six wins, share the spoils thrice, and lose five games. However, recently the team has been doing quite well. Surely, if our Perth Glory vs Melbourne City predictions succeed, we will have Maclaren and his colleagues strive for 1st place.

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

Player to Watch: Jamie Maclaren

The match at HBF Park has ideal conditions for Jamie Maclaren to be the key player on the field. First of all, Perth Glory do not perform well in the last couple of matches. The fact that they are semi-last proves that. Second of all, team captain Mark Beevers won’t play in this match, which means Jamie Maclaren will have freedom in the opposition’s penalty box.

We have Jamie down as the player to watch in our Perth Glory vs Melbourne City prediction as he was the top A-League Goalscorer last season. He has a decent chance of bagging a couple of goals against Perth Glory’s lackluster backline as well.
