Perth's recent form has been abysmal and the number of goals conceded has to be a major concern for them. Ross McCormack will fancy his chances of scoring against them here, but the Glory have an outstanding record against City at home and they have to be favoured here with both teams scoring.

April 2017 gave us a very memorable encounter between Perth Glory and Melbourne City, although defensive purists may well consider this a game to forget. That’s because there were no fewer than nine goals in this topsy-turvy fixture. It would be the home side who would live up to their name and take the glory as they just edged proceedings by five goals to four.
