In their 18 matches this season, they have won seven drawn six and lost five, scoring 25 and conceding 25 in return. With a points tally of 27, they also now sit 16 points adrift of Perth at the top of the table. As for their recent run of form, the Phoenix have now managed to win just one of their last five matches across all competitions.
As for the visitors, while Melbourne might be coming off the back of a defeat to Perth last weekend, they still remain in pole position to book a spot in the AFC Champions League. In their 18 A-League matches this season, they have won 11, dawn three and lost four, scoring 40 and conceding 23 in return. Entering the second half of the season, Victory currently hold the best-attacking record in Australia’s top-tier. As for their recent run of form, the visitors have now lost just one of their last six league appearances, winning four of those outings.
