Adelaide United target their third straight win over Melbourne Victory when the two rivals face off in A-League Round 7 action on Saturday night.

Adelaide vs Victory kicks off at 7.30pm AEDT at Coopers Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


Adelaide will be looking to win four straight games in the A-League for the first time since 2016 when they come up against Victory on Saturday night.

The Reds are currently on a four-match winning streak, but their first victory of that run came in the FFA Cup final, where they demolished Melbourne City by a 4-1 scoreline.

Adelaide have defeated Newcastle, Brisbane and Central Coast in their last three outings, coming back from a goal down to ease past the Mariners last week, with attacking trio Ben Halloran, Nikola Mileusnic and Kristian Opseth all getting on the scoresheet.

With two wins against Victory in their last two games at home, can Adelaide make it a hat-trick on Saturday?



Marco Kurz returns to Adelaide for the first time since leaving the club to take up the manager role at Victory - and it’s safe to say he’s found the transition quite challenging in the early stages of the season.

Victory have won just one of their opening six matches and are languishing in eighth spot on the ladder coming into this contest.

It looked as if Victory were about to kick-start their season when they went ahead against Sydney FC last week, but they leaked two second-half goals to go down 2-1.

Victory have got to start clicking sooner rather than later, especially with one of the competition’s best players in Ola Toivonen, but they haven’t played well in Adelaide in their recent meetings. This could be another long night for the navy blue.
