Sydney FC and Melbourne City

Sydney FC continue their pursuit of A-League ladder leaders Perth Glory when they host out-of-form Melbourne City at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday.

Sydney FC v Melbourne City kicks off at 7.00pm AEST at Leichhardt Oval. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview


Sydney FC return home from AFC Champions League action as they continue the chase of A-League ladder leaders Perth Glory in the final game of Round 22 on Sunday night.

The Sky Blues follow a 0-0 home draw with Ulsan Hyundai in their ACL opener by going down 1-0 to Kawasaki Frontale in Japan, but attention now turns back to the A-League.

Steve Corica's Sydney side sit in second spot heading into Round 22 and will be out to keep the distant pressure on Perth in the race for the Premiers Plate.

They face a Melbourne City side which has lost its way a little and failed to win any of the last six games, one of which was a 2-0 defeat to Sydney FC. They did, however, hold Glory 2-2 most recently.

As a result Warren Joyce's side have slipped to sixth spot on the ladder and started the weekend with just a four-point cushion to seventh-place Newcastle Jets.

Melbourne have lost the last seven head to heads and haven't beaten Sydney in the harbour city since 2015. The winless run looks set to be extended to seven games and the finals pressure pumped up a notch further.

Match Odds


Sydney FC - $1.91
Melbourne City - $3.75
Draw - $3.50
