Quick links

A-League prediction - Who will win between Perth Glory v Melbourne City on 8th January?

Perth will be feeling the effects of not scoring in two games whilst conceding 9 goals in the same games. Those two results provide little impetus to back them to win this game at just $3.00. Melbourne City have not been in great recent form themselves and were probably thankful for the visit of Wellington Phoenix in Round 14, a game in which they scored an unconvincing 2-1 victory following three consecutive losses, two away from home. So by the same token, backing them to take three pioints at just $2.20 doesn't seem plausible either

The draw at $3.50 looks the only way to go

Goals Betting

If Perth have not shored up the defence after the last 2 rounds then one might think Melbourne City could land Over 2.50 goals on their own, it is hard to imagine Perth going yet another game without recording a score, so, despite being a shortish $1.70, Over 2.50 does seem reasonable prediction. Both teams to score at $1.60 does not at all, although you can improve that bet to $4.33 combining Both teams to score with the draw prediction
