Melbourne City vs Western United Preview & Prediction
It all comes down to this… Melbourne City will look to defend their title as champions against rivals Western United, who are featuring in the club’s first-ever Grand Final in their third season.
Patrick Kisnorbo’s side finished the regular season with the premiers plate despite not coming away with the three points against any of the teams that finished in the top four. Their record against Western United this season is 0-1-2.
The most recent meeting saw the points split in a 2-2 draw. Although United did find themselves two to the good in the first half an hour before City clawed their way back.
However, most recently, City was forced into extra time against Adelaide United to reach this stage, with Golden Boot winner Jamie Maclaren finding the winner two minutes into extra time.
Elsewhere, John Aloisi’s outfit was involved in the greatest game in their club’s short history against fierce rivals and heavyweights Melbourne Victory. They headed into the second leg behind on aggregate, but three goals in a crazy second half booked them their ticket to the Grand Final.
International striker Aleksandar Prijovic was the star of the show, providing two goals and a wonderfully taken assist for Lachlan Wale’s strike to put them ahead in the latter stages of the tie.
Both sides will still be without star midfielders Aiden O’Neill and Alessandro Diamanti for the biggest game of the season.
It’s a tough match to predict with form often thrown out of the window in these types of clashes, but you can expect both sides to be stern in defence in a low-scoring encounter.
So, therefore, I believe the tie could be decided in a penalty shootout, that Western United will come out on top to win the club’s first-ever piece of silverware despite their price of $4.75 with bet365 & Ladbrokes.
Five of the last eight meetings has seen both teams score. (Best BTTS – Yes odds: $1.75 with bet365).
