Sydney and Melbourne City will meet in the final match of the championship on August 30 – in the forecast, we have identified the favorite. Who will be stronger?
Sydney has a very high level of the season – Steve Corica’s team from the very start of the season captured the podium and eventually finished in first place. In the semifinals of the playoffs, the “sky-blue” got into rivals “Perth Glory”, which did not manage to offer serious resistance.
A 2-0 win propelled Sydney into the final of the tournament and became their first in six matches.
Melbourne City also had a powerful first part of the season – Eric Momberts’ team failed to impose a fight on Sydney for the first place , but they defended the second line without any problems. The townspeople were six points ahead of the third Wellington Phoenix, allowing themselves to relax at the end of the season.
In the semi-finals, Melbourne City met with Western United and had some problems. In the first half of the meeting, the opponents played reliably in defense, but due to the standards in the second half, the “townspeople” achieved their goal, scoring two goals.
Sydney was absolutely the best team in the first part of the championship in all respects, but when it became clear that the first line was not going anywhere, the team began to allow themselves to make mistakes. Nevertheless, in the playoffs, the “sky blue” once again demonstrated their superiority over the competitors, with a margin they beat “Perth Glory”, not including the maximum revs.
Melbourne City are inferior to their rivals in the selection of players, and in recent years they have taken points from Sydney only on major holidays, it is unlikely that a sensation will happen in the decisive match of the season.
We believe that nominal hosts have a better chance of winning. Forecast – Asian handicap (0) at Sydney . In 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.87
