The A-League match between Melbourne City and Adelaide United features Bettingpro.com.au’s bet of the day for Sunday, October 20.

Melbourne City vs Adelaide United - 4:00pm AEDT


City and Adelaide will each be determined to deliver a psychological blow ahead of next week’s FFA Cup showpiece as the two sides square off in Round 2 of the A-League on Sunday.

In a quirk of the draw that will see these teams face off two times in the space of four days, neither side will want to come out on the losing end with a piece of silverware up for grabs on Wednesday.

Neither side managed to claim all three points in the opening round, with City unlucky to be held to a 0-0 stalemate with Victory in the Melbourne derby.

 


City dominated proceedings with a total of 17 shots, more than any other side last week, but they lacked polish in the final third and couldn’t get on the scoresheet.

Nevertheless, Erick Mombaert will be pleased with his side’s performance and will be hoping City can find the back of the net on Sunday afternoon.

Adelaide meanwhile were left frustrated by a late Sydney FC strike that saw the Reds go down 3-2 at home after initially recovering from a 2-0 deficit.

Al Hassan Toure and Nikola Mileusnic drew Adelaide level with quick goals either side of half-time, but Ryan McGowan netted a 87th minute winner for the Sky Blues to break Reds’ hearts.

Adelaide will be searching for their first back-to-back wins over City in the A-League since 2016 after winning their last encounter 1-0 in May. Both sides looked good in patches last week - but it’s hard to separate these two teams in these early stages of the season.
