Melbourne City vs Sydney FC Prediction and Betting Preview 01 August 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Melbourne City vs Sydney FC PredictionThe most successful club in the Hyundai A-League, Sydney FC have swept through the league once again, steamrolling through to the top of the standings. They have been utterly ruthless, asserting their dominance over every other side in the cluster.
Match status: 2019/20 A-League
Kick-off:
Venue: ANZ Stadium (Sydney)
With just three games left to play, the Sky Blues are a whopping eleven points clear of second-placed Wellington Phoenix, and have already clinched the Premiership title. Enjoying a blistering season thus far, they have accrued a staggering 51 points from 22 games.

The fans must be very ecstatic with their club’s achievements this season, adding a fifth Premiership title to peel further away from the chasing pack. Having already secured top-spot, Steve Corica’s charges have little or nothing to play for here.

As such, they are likely to struggle to find as much motivation as their desperate opposition, Melbourne City who are looking to break into top-two to book an automatic Final Series’ semifinal spot. Expect the hosts to turn in a performance of the highest quality to salvage a favorable result in this fixture.

Melbourne City vs Sydney FC Team News

Enjoying an outstanding campaign in the Australian League this season, Melbourne City currently sit third on the log, level on points with second-placed Wellington Phoenix. They are blowing hot on Phoenix’s tails, hoping for any slip-ups to capitalize on.

Following the coronavirus pandemic that crippled footballing activities across the world, the A-League was brought to a halt late March. Prior to the break, they had been playing by fits and starts, struggling to string positive results on the trot. Pressure grew on Erick Mombaerts as time went on.

Hopefully, the unexpected break should have given City players sometime off to rediscover their groove to return to winning ways. The ultimate goal being to finish right behind Sydney FC on the log, the Hearts must not fall short of expectations.

Melbourne City were last seen in action against league strugglers Newcastle Jets at the McDonald Jones Stadium, Mombaerts’ men failing to secure a much-needed victory. Given a run for their money by their stubborn opposition, City were surprisingly defeated 2-1, putting their top-two hopes on the line.

A job to behold on the pitch, Sydney FC have made light work of the league, once again, easing through to the summit of the standings. They have never really been phased by any opposition, proving to be the best Australian side this term.

Having conquered the A-League time and time again, the Sky Blues have been criticized for their performances in continental competitions, with no single AFC Champions League medal of note. Now, Corica’s men will be looking to prove doubters wrong with a good run in the competition next term.

Success in the AFC Champions League will put them right up there, alongside WS Wanderers, as the only Australian outfits to have lifted the title. As they have already sealed their fifth Premiership title, Sydney FC will focus on ending their season on a strong note.

Victories in their remaining three fixtures will send a strong message to the rest of the top-six ahead of the Final Series coming up very soon. With four Championship titles safely stashed in the cabinet, the Sky Blues will fancy adding a fifth this term.
