Melbourne Victory target their first win of the 2019/20 A-League season on Friday night when they take on Western Sydney Wanderers in Round 2 action.

Prediction

Match Preview


Victory will be confident of registering their first win of the season on Friday night as they bring a five-match winning streak over the Wanderers into this showdown.

It was a frustrating first A-League match in charge of Victory for Marco Kurz last week as his side played out a 0-0 stalemate with Melbourne City. Victory were off the pace for the majority of the contest as they managed only six shots on goal compared to City’s 17, but they should be better for the run against the Wanderers.

With the likes of Ola Toivonen and Andrew Nabbout in attack, Victory have two of the A-League’s most feared frontmen, but it’s about creating the opportunities for them to shine.



Meanwhile, the Wanderers got off to a winning start last week, but not without a scare as they came from a goal down to edge Central Coast Mariners 2-1 at Bankwest Stadium.

It was a shaky performance from the Wanderers in their first game at their new home ground, but Mitchell Duke saved the day as he bagged a brace, while former Eintracht Frankfurt star Alexander Meir got his first taste of A-League action before being substituted in the 58h minute.

As mentioned, Victory have been dominant in this fixture over the last couple of years, winning the last five encounters between the teams. Victory have scored at least three goals in those wins, and with the Wanderers struggling to put away the Mariners at home, Kurz’s side should be good enough to pick up all three points at Marvel Stadium on Friday night.
