There is very little to split the teams in what will be a mid-table clash this weekend. Melbourne Victory are fifth while Adelaide United are currently one place above them in fifth. Both teams have won two of their last three matches and this has draw written all over it.

February 2014 saw these two teams face off in Melbourne and it would be the Victory who would live up to their name thanks to coming out on top in what to turned out to be a very entertaining seven-goal thriller. The home side would just edge it by four goals to three.
