Match Preview

Melbourne Victory have suffered back-to-back A-League losses and will have to overcome ladder leaders Sydney FC in the Big Blue if they are to avoid a third straight defeat.

Victory went down 1-0 to Adelaide United last weekend having conceded two penalties deep into injury time when losing 3-2 at Central Coast Mariners in Round 14, results that leave them sitting eighth on the ladder and outside of the finals spots.

Morale was boosted on Tuesday night with a 5-0 victory over Bali United to set up a AFC Champions League Qualification PlayOff at Kashima Antlers next week, leaving Carlos Perez Salvachua with a dilemma over selection for this game.

The Sky Blues made it three wins in a row with a 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets in Round 14 and still hold an eight-point lead at the top of the ladder after last week’s bye.

With a recent record of 10 wins over Victory in the last 13 meetings, Steve Corica’s Sydney side look to have everything in their favour as they continue their march towards the Premiers Plate.
