This promises to be a intriguing clash between two of the biggest sides in the A-League with City desperate to make ground on leaders Sydney. The hosts will be confident given their recent form and that will likely see City approach this game with caution and they will look to frustrate Sydney for as long as possible so expect few goals.
Sydney FC have won their last three encounters against Melbourne City and the pick of those wins came back in April of this year when they eased to a routine 3-0 win in front of their own fans, Sydney’s Bobo would earn the plaudits that day after scoring a brace of goals which would secure the victory.
