Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory Prediction and Betting Preview, 08 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-4
In one of the matches billed to go down in the Hyundai A-League this weekend, high-flying Perth Glory play host to Melbourne Victory at the Jubilee Oval on Saturday morning, both sides tussling for bragging rights and more importantly, maximum points.
Match status: 2019/20 A-League - Round 25
Kick-off:
Venue: Jubilee Oval (Sydney)
The most successful side in the Australian League Championship, alongside Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory have seemed a shadow of their former selves this term. For a club that have garnered a league-high five Championship titles, the Victory can count this season as one big disappointment.

Struggling to hit the ground running so far, Brebner’s men find themselves in 10th place, just two points clear of basement club Central Coast Mariners. They have garnered a measly 20 points from 24 games all season – a horrendous record by all standards.

Taking on a strong Perth Glory side this Saturday, the Boys in Blue will be hoping for a miracle-of-sorts to stand any chances against this superior opposition. The hosts’ recent stupendous run of form tips the scales slightly in their favor.

Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory Team News

Getting their season off to a flying start, Perth Glory immediately made their Championship title defense intent well-known from the off. They began the campaign so brightly, strutting a couple of positive results to place themselves well in contention for the title.

However, things soon went south at Jubilee Oval with the Glory hitting an unfortunate rough patch. With head coach Tony Popovic naming the same starting XI every week, the first-team players had already begun feeling jaded. They were slowly losing their momentum.

As a result, Perth Glory’s slump on the standings began steadily as they soon fell off the pace in the running for the league title. Currently sitting fifth on the log, with 37 points from 24 games, Popovic’s charges are still in with a shout this term.

They may have failed in their bid to defend the Championship, but are still in contention for qualification to the Finals series. Holding a measly four-point buffer in the play-offs zone, the Glory will need to keep grinding out positive results on a regular to avoid dropping down the ladder.

Meanwhile, Melbourne Victory have endured a difficult run-in this season, flirting around the bottom end of the standings. Surely, their worst campaign of all time, erstwhile manager Carlos Salvachua decided to leave the club earlier in the year, heading home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Immediately delving into the market, the Victory appointed Grant Brebner as interim head coach to see off the rest of their disappointing campaign. Knowing fully well that the season is well and truly over, the Scottish gaffer will just focus on grabbing some good results to finish on a strong note.

Taking recent fixtures into context, the Boys in Blue have been the worst side in the league, losing each of their previous five league games on the bounce, and conceding a whopping 14 goals in that time. Also, they are winless in eight of their past ten matches, with only a single away win all season.

In a tale of contrasting fortunes, Perth Glory have scored no less than two goals in their last two fixtures, and have remained unbeaten in six of the previous eight home games.
