Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory A-League Semi-Final Match Preview and Predictions - Big Blue battle for Grand Final spot

Gary Emmerson 26 Apr 2018
  • Sydney FC are unbeaten in the last eight Big Blue clashes
  • Melbourne Victory lost all three meetings between the sides this season
  • Both sides have been crowned A-League champions a record three times

Big Blue rivals Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory clash for a place in the A-League Grand Final when they lock horns at Allianz Stadium in the Semi-Finals on Saturday night.

Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory kicks off at 7.50pm AEST. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction  


Match Preview


Twelve months after battling it out in the Grand Final, only one side can make it to the big dance this year with Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory meeting in the semi-finals this time around.

Sydney created history this season by winning a second successive Premiers Plate and are are now eyeing another Grand Final victory 12 months after beating Victory on penalties. 

The Sky Blues won all three meetings this season, a 1-0 win on the opening weekend, a 3-1 success in January and a 1-0 win earlier this month. Their unbeaten run in the Big Blue now stands at eight games.

Graham Arnold's Sydney enter the semi-final on the back of four straight wins and a week off, while Victory have won three of their last four including Besart Berisha's late winner last week to secure a 2-1 win over Adelaide United in the Elimination Final.

Can Kevin Muscat's Victory side end the stretch without a win against Sydney or will it be the Sky Blues who progress to the Grand Final? I can only go with one outcome and that is a win for the reigning premiers.

Stats


  • Sydney FC are unbeaten in the last eight Big Blue clashes
