Melboure Victory are still looking for their first win of the season after failing to pick up a single victory from their first six matches (D4, L2).

They come into this game having drawn their last four matches. This however is not the longest streak of draws in the division at present as Western Sydney Wanderers have drawn their last five.

They have scored six goals in as many A-League matches this season while conceding eight at the other end - an average of 1.33 goals against per game.

Besart Berisha and Leroy George are currently the club’s top goalscorers with two goals each to their name. A total of four different players have managed to get on the scoresheet for the club this season.

In terms of discipline, Melbourne Victory have had 19 yellow cards and one red card shown to them in their first six matches of the season - they average 3.16 bookings per league game this season.

Perth Glory have won both of their previous home A-League encounters this season and are the only team to still have a 100% home record in the division.

Melbourne Victory have drawn both of their away fixtures this season, with three goals being scored by the club in the process.

Perth Glory have not lost to Melbourne Victory in their last four encounters (W3, D1).

Of the 24 matches played between the two clubs, Perth Glory have the upper hand in terms of goals scored. They have scored 41 compared to Melbourne Victory’s 34.

Perth Glory have scored eight A-League goals from their first six matches, an average of 1.66 goals per game.

Perth Glory have the second most generous defence in the division at present after conceding 12 goals - an average of two goals against per game.

These two sides squared off in April of this year and it was a sensational game that resulted in nine goals being scored. Perth Glory would grab the bragging rights that day, coming out on top after a 5-4 home win.
