Melbourne City vs Sydney FC Preview

The two top teams in the A-League will do battle on Saturday in the Grand Final! Melbourne City will square off against Sydney FC for the second year on the trot from AAMI Park and The Wolf has you covered with a full preview and betting tips for the clash below. [offers[

Melbourne City have been the strongest team throughout the A-League season, finishing the year on top of the table with a 15-4-7 record. Although they had a bit of a slow finish to the season, winning just one of their last five games, that could be attributed to the fact that they had already wrapped up top spot on the table with over a month to go and went into cruise control.

City looked back to their best in their semi-final against Macarthur, firing off 12 shots and four on target in the 2-0 win. The win berths them a place in their second straight A-League Grand Final and a chance at revenge after going down to Sydney FC in the big game last season.

Melbourne City have not lost in regular time to Sydney FC in their last four games, but of course that Grand Final last season ended in a Sydney 1-0 win after extra time. In their two games this season, Melbourne City recorded a 3-2 win at home before travelling to Sydney and capturing a 1-1 draw on the road.

Melbourne City will be without Socceroos trio in Jamie Maclaren, Connor Metcalfe and Curtis Good for the clash but still have plenty of depth to call upon, as displayed in their win over the Bulls last weekend. To even things out, Sydney FC also have three players out through Socceroos selection in Andrew Redmayne, Rhyan Grant and Ryan McGowan.

They start as slight favourites at home and despite some shaky form to finish the regular season, it’s a bit hard to look past them at the moment. They will have the advantage of the home crowd, with 14,000 fans allowed to attend the venue on Saturday and should be fired up as they aim for their first A-League championship.
