Sydney FC v Melbourne City Betting Tips – 1st April 2017
Sydney FC had secured the A-League Premier’s Plate before last weekend’s game against Perth Glory but there was not even a hint of complacency from Graham Arnold’s men. They ran our comfortable 3-0 winners over the Glory to move them an incredible 14 points clear at the top of the table.
That win made the Sky Blues record breakers. Their tally of 59 points is already a record for a 27-round A-League season and things can continue to get better on Saturday when they host Melbourne City at Allianz Stadium.
While things are going as well as possible for Sydney FC, Melbourne City continue to frustrate. City were well beaten by Western Sydney Wanderers last time out which means they require major improvements ahead of the Finals Series.
Melbourne City fans have every right to be upset with the way that their team have performed this season. They have the sort of advantages (money, talented players, a huge scouting network, connections with other clubs around the world) that every other A-League team would love. And yet, the players only raise their game every now and then suggesting there are some motivation issues at the club.
Michael Valkanis knows that City’s ambitious owners will not tolerate mediocrity for much longer. He must get the best out his players in the run up to the play-offs or else they risk a very tough draw. That means raising their game for their visit to the Allianz Stadium and proving that they can get the job done against the toughest opposition.
That, as City fans well know, is much easier said than done. Sydney FC are not only the best side in the A-League right now but their mental fortitude suggests they will be very difficult to stop going into the Finals.
Sydney FC have failed to win just six matches all season. They are very much used to winning and should continue their dominant season in impressive style by beating Melbourne City at $1.75 with Sportsbet.
Melbourne City have thrown away some strong positions this season. There’s no question that they must improve defensively in the future but they do at least know exactly how to score goals. You have to go back 20 games for the last time that City failed to score in a league game and they should be able to find the net at Allianz Stadium.
Of course, City will find it almost impossible to stop Sydney FC from scoring themselves so make sure you have a bet on both teams to score at a best price of $1.62 with Bet365.
The A-League is always looking for ways to attract quality players to Australian shores and one ex-Brazil legend believes the form of Bobo for Sydney FC will attract more Brazilians to the league.
Gilberto Silva was full of praise for the 32-year-old who has scored a goal every two games for the Sky Blues and he looks the man to back in the First Goalscorer market at $4.60 with Unibet.
