A-League prediction - Who will win between Melbourne Victory and Sydney on 26th January?

Sydney have drawn three of the last five matches in A-league and may have found Newcastle Jets closer to them but for some upsets and shocks themselves, but what do we make of this 'sticky' run? Well, let's not forget that they are unbeaten home and away in all competitions for 20 matches, and whilst that run continues, I'm a little loathed to back against them, or at least backing them to lose. 

Victory are on a good run and have scored 3 goals in each of their last two matches, but odds of $2.89 do not quite tempt me to end the run of Sydney, although it may convince a few after failing to score against Adelaide, and then finding Central Coast a match last week

My bet is that they return to winning ways

Goals Betting

We could have an opportunity here to go against the grain. Victory are scoring for fun and face the league leaders, and Over 2.50 might be viewed by some as a generous price of $1.80, but I think I would prefer to go the other way at Even odds of $2.00 - Both teams have scored in all but one of Victory's home games this season, and that game was the opener against Sydney, when the visitors took all three points with a 0-1 win

Goalscorer Betting

A few options in this, Bobo is missing so 

  • Besart Berisha
  • Adrian Mierzejewski
  • Alex Brosque
  • Kosta Barbarouses

A League Live Stream

Illegal live streams are not the most reliable and we recommend this A league Live Stream information as a reliable alternative. Being able to watch the game live and watch your bets as they happen is exciting, but bear in mind all streams are slightly behind the real-time action, so if using for in-play betting, then please approach with caution.
