Prediction

Match Preview


Eight points clear at the top of the table and on course for the minor premiership, can Perth Glory keep their foot on the pedal when they square off against Melbourne City on Sunday?

Perth have enjoyed a whirlwind season under Tony Popovic, surging to the top of the table on the back of a record 11-game unbeaten streak, while they have still lost just the one game over the course of the first 20 rounds.

Glory have transformed into an excellent all-round side, combining rock solid defence with attacking potency in the attacking third - and City have felt the brunt of that, failing to score against Perth in their previous two matches this season.

And on the back of a 1-1 draw with the Wanderers last week, Popovic will be determined for his side to bounce back to winning ways immediately.

Meanwhile, City are on a five-match winless streak and are in danger of finding themselves in a real dogfight for a finals spot if they fail to get a result this week.

Now just six points clear of the fast-finishing Jets in seventh spot, City risk seeing that deficit being reduced to three if Newcastle can beat Victory and they lose to Perth.

One big bonus for City at the moment is Socceroos striker Jamie Maclaren, who has become the first player in the club’s history to score in his first three games for the team.

But can he inspire City to an upset win over Glory? Perth have a fantastic record against City, losing just one of their last nine A-League meetings, and considering the form of both teams coming into this, I don’t think they’ll be losing this one.
