Prediction

Match Preview


Victory return to the scene of one their most embarrassing defeats when they take on Sydney at Jubilee Stadium on Sunday.

It was one of the most dominant wins in A-League history, let alone the finals series, when Sydney thumped Victory by a 6-1 scoreline on that occasion, with the Sky Blues going on to beat Perth to win the Grand Final.

With just one win from the first five rounds, Victory haven’t hit their stride this season and come into this contest languishing outside the top six in seventh spot.



Victory’s only win for the season came against Brisbane in Round 2, while they were held to a 1-1 draw at home last week to Wellington.

Meanwhile, Sydney are looking to continue from where they left off in their last match, which resulted in a 4-1 win over Newcastle before last week’s bye.

All eyes will be on Kosta Barbarouses, who will be playing against his former club for the first time after scoring his maiden goal for Sydney in the victory over the Jets.

Currently riding an extremely strong record at home that has seen them win 11 of their last 13 A-League matches, Sydney have got to be considered favourites in this clash, especially with Victory still far from their best.
