Western United vs Melbourne City Preview & Prediction

Melbourne City have flown up the ladder over the last month and could potentially go top of the table with two games in hand when they face Western United on Thursday.

After a slow start to the season, City have well and truly hit top gear and come into this encounter on the back of a six-match winning streak.

City have won to nil in four of those victories (Wanderers 2-0, Victory 6-0, Macarthur 3-0 and Mariners 2-0), while they’ve also scored 20 goals in the process.

Former Socceroos striker Jamie Maclaren has banged in 12 goals in his last 10 matches to comfortably lead the Golden Boot leaderboard and he will be confident of finding the back of the next once more on Thursday night.

Meanwhile, Western United are struggling at the moment and head into this clash with three defeats from their last four outings.

United have been inconsistent all season and are languishing in 10th spot on the ladder following a 2-1 loss to Macarthur in their last game.

With just two goals from their last four games, United don’t appear as if they have enough firepower to stop a rampant City outfit.

City are flying high and after a 4-1 win over the Wanderers, I can see them prevailing in another high-scoring game for their seventh straight victory.
