Key Stats

  • A draw is the most common occurrence in this rivalry, responsible for four of the last 10
  • All of the draws in the last 10 showdowns were 1-1 ties.
  • Bruno Fornaroli is the second-best finisher in the league, with 13 goals scored thus far.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Hindmarsh Stadium's advantage not enough

  • HOME: 12/5 (3.40) – 28.8%
  • DRAW: 3/1 (4.00) – 24.2%
  • AWAY: 11/10 (2.10) – 47.0%

*These odds are subject to change

According to the bookmakers’ odds, Adelaide United aren’t considered the expected winners, as the odds behind a home win are priced at 12/5 (3.40), giving coach Carl Veart’s boys barely a 28.8% win probability ahead of the kick-off. Melbourne Victory seem to have the three points up for grabs, as the 11/10 (2.10) odds suggest a massive 47.0% win probability.

However, we believe that a 1-1 tie at 41/10 (5.10) is the likeliest outcome, as the odds imply a 19.61% chance of success.

Adelaide United team news and form: Veart’s side lacks quality

Coach Carl Veart is doing everything he can to bring the team to the next level, but with four losses and a draw in the last five A-League outings, you could make the case that he is failing. Lachlan Barr won’t partake in this match, which further makes things difficult for Adelaide United.

Predicted lineup: Delianov (GK), Warland, Kitto, Kikianis, Bovalina, Saag, Alagich, Isaias, Ayoubi, Mauk & Jovanovic

Melbourne Victory team news and form: The Boys in Blue performing well

Team captain Roderick Miranda will miss the match due to suspension, which might help our Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory predictions. After all, he’s the heart and soul of Melbourne Victory’s backline.

Player to watch: Bruno Fornaroli

Bruno Fornaorli had a compelling lead in the Top Goalscorer chase in the opening months of this season’s A-League campaign. However, he was occupied with international duty for Australia, so he missed out on plenty of games for Melbourne Victory.

Bruno crushing it this season

If Bruno Fornaroli wants to be crowned as the top finisher in the 2023/24 campaign, he’d have to step up his game, as Newcastle Jets’ Apostolos Stamatelopoulos now has 14 goals to his name.
