Fifth plays host to fourth this weekend as the A-League clash between Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United is on the horizon. Kevin Muscat’s men have lost their last three league outings and it is that run of results that has seen Adelaide United leapfrog them in the table. Marco Kurz’s men have only lost one of their last six league outings and will be good value to get at least a point on Saturday.

February 2014 saw a seven-goal thriller played out between Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United with the home side just edging proceedings by four goals to three. The visiting Adelaide side were 2-1 up at one point and looked set for an away win, however three unanswered Victory goals turned the balance of the game in their favour. That was not the end of the goals though as Cirio picked up a late consolation for Adelaide, but it made little difference in the grand scheme of things as the Melbourne based outfit earned all three points.
