Australia A-League: Melbourne Victory vs Melbourne City FC Football Match Preview and and Prediction

Melbourne Victory will face Melbourne City FC in a A-League semi-final clash on Friday night at Etihad Stadium. Melbourne Victory are in good shape with four wins from the last five games, while Melbourne City FC have shown inconsistency throughout the season with one win in their last five fixtures. Melbourne Victory are the most potent attacking team in the A-League, having scored 56 goals during the entire season while Melbourne City have scored 36 goals. Both teams have played 15 games against each other, out of which Melbourne Victory won 6 games, Melbourne City FC won 5 games and 4 games were drawn.

Both teams have injuries to their key players. Melbourne Victory will miss Nathan Coe and Jordan Brown, while Melbourne City are playing without Robbie Wielaert, Damien Duff, James Brown, Ben Garuccio, Jack Clisby, and Jacob Melling.
