Melbourne City vs Melbourne Victory preview

Jamie Samuel A-League

A huge Melbourne Derby is taking place at AAMI Park on Saturday night, between Melbourne City and Melbourne Victory.

This match will be a huge test for the much improved Melbourne Victory side, facing league leaders Melbourne City. The Victory have been in pretty reasonable form recently, after their FFA cup “hangover”, they have won 2 of their last 3 games, including an impressive 3-1 over Macarthur at home. City come into this game on top with 9 wins and will be highly fancied.

Who will forget the thrilling 2-2 draw between these sides in the Derby on the 18th of December? Tomorrow promises much more thrilling action.
