Market: Melbourne City win
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Looking to close the gap at the top of the A-League table, Melbourne City will welcome a struggling Western Sydney Wanderers side on Tuesday morning.
Starting with the hosts, although it might have been a slow start to the new A-League campaign for Melbourne City, they are enjoying a bright rise entering the New Year. In their 14 games this season, they have won seven, drawn three and lost four, scoring 17 and conceding 12 in return. Entering Tuesday’s contest, the Blues hold comfortably the best defensive record in Australia’s top-tier. As for their recent run of form, along with losing just one of their last seven A-League matches, Melbourne are also enjoying a six-match unbeaten run at AAMI Park. It is also worth noting that the hosts have one the last two meetings against the Wanderers without conceding a goal in return.
As for the visitors, drastically struggling with their form entering 2019, Western Sydney have begun freefalling down the A-League table. In their 14 games this season, they have recorded just two wins, three draws and nine defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 29 in return. Sat way down in eighth and 14 points adrift of the top half of the table, they hold the third worst defensive record in Australia. As for their recent run of form, the Wanderers have now lost their last five league matches on the bounce and more worrying have now conceded 10 goals in their last three away matches.
