Adelaide United v Melbourne City A-League Elimination Final Tips, Predictions and Preview - Can anything separate rivals?

Adelaide United and Melbourne City will battle to keep their season alive when they meet in the second A-League Elimination Final at Coopers Stadium on Sunday night.

Adelaide v Melbourne kicks off at 7.00pm AEST at Coopers Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview


Melbourne City wouldn't have been expecting a trip to Adelaide United in the first week of the A-League finals, but that is what is they got after a dramatic Round 27.

A 5-0 thumping of Central Coast Mariners coupled with Wellington Phoenix's no-show in Perth saw City jump up to fifth place and secured a matchup with Adelaide instead of a Melbourne derby with Victory.

It’s been seven straight games against City without a win for Adelaide with four losses and three draws but their form going into this game is undeniable.

Three wins and two draws helped catapult them up to fourth place and earn hosting rights for this final.

They did put five past Brisbane last Thursday but that does come with the caveat of the Roar having the worst defence in A-League history.

Outside of their games against Brisbane, they have only scored more than two goals in a game once since November 30.

With Adelaide’s goalscoring woes, the nature of finals football and quite honestly the fact this game really could go either way, the draw looks the best value option for the 90 minute market.

Another play for this game is to back a low scoring encounter with just one or two goals getting the job done.

Match Odds


Adelaide United $2.24
Melbourne City $3.10
Draw $3.10
