Match Preview: Melbourne Derby

This is the one you’ve been waiting for; our home Melbourne Derby is just one sleep away and it couldn’t arrive any sooner!

Melbourne City will be looking not only to bounce back from its 1-1 draw with Sydney FC but to do so emphatically when it comes up against a Melbourne Victory side still licking its wounds from that unforgettable 6-0 drubbing at Marvel Stadium last month.

The Victory were fortunate to pick up their third win of the season last round when they played literally the only team in the competition (marginally) worse than them in the form of the Newcastle Jets, who they narrowly downed 2-1 on Saturday.
