We’re heading to the A-League for today’s best bet as Sydney FC and Melbourne City square off in the Grand Final.
It will be a rematch of last year’s Grand Final and we can get some great value on Sydney FC to make it back-to-back premierships.
City were the undisputed best team of the regular season, deservedly winning the minor premiership, but they’ve been sub-par over the last month.
It’s no coincidence their loss of form has coincided with Jamie Maclaren departing the team on Socceroos duty and the star striker will again miss the Grand Final due to being in quarantine.
Almost half of City’s goals during the regular season were scored by Maclaren and they’ve struggled in his absence.
Indeed, City have won just one of their last four matches heading into the Grand Final, losing against the lowly Newcastle Jets and copping a 3-0 hammering by Brisbane Roar, while they also drew with last-placed Melbourne Victory.
City were also somewhat fortunate to survive Macarthur in last week’s semi-finals – they easily could have gone down a couple of goals in the first half after Macarthur hit the woodwork and missed an absolute sitter, but they steadied to prevail 2-0.
Sydney meanwhile have timed their run perfectly and are peaking at exactly the right time, coming into this encounter on a six-match winning streak.
Additionally, Sydney have only conceded two goals during that period. Their defence is rock solid, while strikers Bobo and Adam Le Fondre have been in excellent form over the last month.
That could be the difference in the Grand Final. While City don’t have their key goalscorer playing and have some inexperienced players in attack, Sydney are equipped with two of the best strikers in the competition.
Sydney are the team in form with genuine match winners who have done it before – and they are tremendous value against a team with just one win in their last four who have never won a Grand Final before.
- Sydney have won their last six straight A-League matches
- Sydney have conceded just two goals in that period
- City have won just one of their last four matches
- City are still without Jamie Maclaren
- Bobo has scored eight goals in his last 11 matches
- Sydney edged City in last season’s Grand Final
