Sydney FC vs Melbourne City A-League Preview and Team News - Sydney aiming for seventh straight win over City

  • Sydney FC face Melbourne City in Round 17 of the A-League on Sunday
  • Sydney have won their last six encounters
Sydney host City on Sunday

A top four blockbuster closes out A-League Round 17 action on Sunday as Sydney FC and Melbourne City collide at Jubilee Stadium.

Third faces fourth as Sydney FC and Melbourne City look to maintain pace with the top two as Round 17 concludes on Sunday.

Both teams are aiming to bounce back from last-start defeats, with Sydney losing 2-1 to Victory on Australia Day and City falling at home 1-0 to Wellington.

Another loss to either team will act as a big blow in regards to their top two aspirations, making this clash a vital one.

City are the team with the most to lose. They are five points behind Sydney on the ladder and are still battling with the likes of Adelaide and Phoenix in five and sixth, with a top four spot still up for grabs between all three clubs.

City have also lost their last two away matches to go with last week’s home loss, so they don’t exactly bring winning form into a showdown against one of the competition’s elite teams.

Sydney meanwhile could count themselves a bit unlucky in their defeat to Victory, but they were on a three-match winning streak before that contest, so Steve Corica has no real reason to panic.

The Sky Blues also ran out comfortable 3-0 winners the last time these two teams met back in Round 3, when Adam Le Fondre bagged himself a double. Sydney have also won the last six games between the sides, and at home, I suspect they will make it a lucky seven on Sunday.

Stats


  • Sydney have won the last six games between the sides
  • Sydney prevailed 3-0 back in Round 3
  • City have won just one of their last nine away games vs Sydney
