After a disastrous start to the season, the Victory righted the ship with solid wins over Melbourne City (2-1) and Newcastle (4-0). But they took a step back again with an extraordinary 3-2 loss to Central Coast, conceding two penalties in stoppage time. Assistant coach Carlos Salvachua will take the reins for the rest of the campaign.
Adelaide are now on a four-match losing streak, held scoreless for the first time this season in a 3-0 loss in Perth last Saturday.
United are on a three-match winning streak against the Victory, with all three coming in Adelaide. The Victory’s winless run in Adelaide stands at just over three years. The Reds carved out a 3-1 win in Week 7.
The Victory have lost three of their four games away from Melbourne this season. United have won three of their last four in Adelaide. But the Victory’s upheaval could have a galvanising effect and give them the edge here.
