Melbourne Victory are the expected winners, with a staggering 66.1% win probability at 1/2 (1.50), but this comes as a surprise to no one.

As you see, neither side has the advantage in the most recent games. However, we do have to remind you that the Boys in Blue did get more wins in the last 10 games.

Melbourne Victory team news and form: Boys in Blue bounced back

After a rather disappointing run last month, it seems that Melbourne Victory are back on track. They recorded a 1-2 win over Adelaide United and a 2-2 draw versus in-form Western United recently, so we expect our Melbourne Victory vs Perth Glory predictions to succeed.

Predicted lineup: Izzo (GK), Geria, Roderick, Da Silva, Chapman, Brimmer, Valadon, Velupillay, Machach, Khelifi & Fornaroli

Perth Glory team news and form: One-man-army Taggart on his own

Adam Taggart’s form is the only positive thing for the Glory recently. The €700k-priced striker scored a total of 16 goals this season, but they don’t seem to have helped the team much. After all, Perth Glory find themselves in 10th place.

Predicted lineup: Sail (GK), Rawlins, Majekodunmi, Lachman, Warland, Colakovski, Colli, Amini, Bennie, Taggart & Williams

Player to watch: Bruno Fornaroli

Coach Popovic is undoubtedly on cloud nine over the fact that he can finally use Bruno Fornaroli again. The latter was occupied with international duty for Australia for far too long, but he’s now back and ready to claim 1st place in the goalscoring charts once more.

Fornaroli scoring for fun in Australia

The only player with more goals in this year’s A-League is Perth Glory’s Adam Taggart. However, Fornaroli has played fewer games than the Glory’s in-form man, so we expect him to make a difference in favor of our Melbourne Victory vs Perth Glory prediction.
