Melbourne City vs Adelaide United Preview & Prediction
Melbourne City have been in unstoppable form over the last few months and they will be targeting their eighth straight home win when they face a slumping Adelaide United on Thursday night.
City are flying high at the top of the ladder and enjoy a nine-point lead over second-placed Sydney FC with a game in hand.
Jamie Maclaren has been on fire all season, with the former Socceroos striker scoring 22 goals in his last 18 games.
With a league-high 48 goals and having conceded just 23, City have found the perfect balance in their squad and have been by far and away the stand-out team in the competition all season.
City have won their last three matches and will be strong favourites to make it four against Adelaide on Thursday night.
After putting together a fantastic six-match winning streak earlier in the season, Adelaide have stumbled in recent weeks and come into this encounter winless in their last four games.
Adelaide have drawn three of those fixtures, including being held to 0-0 stalemates in their last two matches against Western United and Wellington Phoenix.
The Reds remain in third spot on the ladder, but a loss here would see them lose even more momentum.
Adelaide haven’t beaten City at AAMI Park since 2016, so that won’t help their chances to cause the upset.
City are absolutely flying and with Maclaren in lethal form, we can expect the hosts to register an eighth consecutive home win here.
