THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Victory’s season was petering to a fairly miserable end prior to the lockdown and they are not helped by the absence of some key overseas stars like Toivonen, Poulsen and Hoogland all of whom have departed due to the pandemic. They face Western United who were in rampant form prior to the break and have kept together the majority of their team other than Kone. They still have an outside chance of reaching the top six and they should have the edge in quality and motivation to beat Victory here.
