Melbourne City team news and form: Hearts must bounce back

Sadly, Hearts lost the Melbourne derby against Melbourne Victory. After 90 minutes of play, the result on the scoreboard at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium was 2-1 in favor of the Boys in Blue, but in all honesty, coach Aurelio Vidmar’s boys had more possession and didn’t deserve to lose this one.

Predicted lineup: Young (GK), Good, Soupayen, Godoy, Talbot, Ugarkovic, Jeggo, Natel, Arslan, Jakolis & Maclaren

Player to watch: Jamie Maclaren

Jamie Maclaren is simply unrecognizable this season. During the 2022/23 A-League campaign, he was in a fierce battle for the Top Goalscorer Award with former Central Coast Mariners striker Jason Cummings. Of course, he emerged victorious, but he is simply not up to par this season.

Maclaren needs to step up his game

It’s no wonder why coach Aurelio Vidmar benched Maclaren. Hearts’ captain scored only eight goals this season.
