Sydney FC vs Melbourne Victory Predictions
Despite a desperate a 7-0 defeat which cost Grant Brebner his job, Victory still won the matches before and after this fixture.
Melbourne Victory will play under Interim boss Steve Kean, who led the team to a 5-4 win prior to this. Kean will only look to end the season on a high and not make matters worse for the second-to-last team.
On the other hand, Sydney FC haven’t tasted defeat since their loss to Adelaide United on March 28. Though, they did play three successive draws just before this clash.
Still, Steve Corica’s side remain favorites to secure all three points on Tuesday. Melbourne Victory need a miracle to win.
So, Victory are likely score under Kean, but not enough to overwhelm Sydney.
