Melbourne Victory vs Sydney FC Preview
The ‘Big Blue’ goes back to the inaugural season of the A-League in 2005/06 when the clubs played on three occasions, with each side winning once and the third ending in a draw. Since then, the teams have been very close when it comes to the regular season, with Sydney FC winning having upper hand, even if only slightly. They have played each other in three Grand Finals, the latest coming in 2017 when Sydney beat the Victory in a thrilling penalty shoot out to cap off a near perfect season.
Sydney FC have been dominant for a number of years, winning three of the last four A-League titles and only missing out in 2018 courtesy of a surprise extra-time loss to none other than Melbourne Victory in the semi-finals. This season is very much in the early stages, with both sides having a slow start to the campaign.
The Victory had a busy off-season, and have had little game time compared to others in the league. A team which prides itself on being one of the most consistent in the league on a season-to-season basis, the Victory are looking to head back to the top of the table and get in front of their Melbourne rivals, the light blue of City. This season, they have a lot of work to do just to qualify for the finals series, and a win against the much more in-form Sydney FC would be an ideal way to start.
