Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory Predictions: Hosts to Kick Off with a Win

09:50 Friday 20 October 2017
Simon Harrison
  • Adelaide haven’t lost during their last four home league fixtures (Adelaide United to Win ) — 17/11 Ladbrokes
  • The visitors have failed to score in three of their last four A-League away games (Both Teams to Score (No)) — 5/4 Unibet

Match Preview

The home side have started their league campaign fairly well ahead of our Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory preview and free soccer tips, and are unbeaten during their first two games. Both of those came on the road, with it now an opportunity to settle in at home too.

Adelaide United have gone unbeaten during their last four consecutive home games in the A-League and will want to kick off the new season in the same vein. After doing well on the road, it should be easier to maintain those performance levels at home.

Our Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory predictions do not back the away side to cause too many problems on their travels, which makes Adelaide look like a team to back to win comfortably this week with the available A-League odds.

Melbourne Victory lack an edge up top and this should be something that enables the home side to look quite tight at the back, which is fairly rare so far this season.

Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory Prediction and Betting Advice

Ladbrokes have the best value available on a home win, which should be fairly routine given that Adelaide have started the season brilliantly and they’re yet to even play on home soil. They may have finished last campaign with consecutive draws at the Adelaide Oval, but Melbourne have been struggling of late.

Melbourne Victory managed to take a 2-0 victory here last season, but the same isn’t likely to occur again. Since that win, they have managed just one other, which came in February. But for a comfortable victory over Central Coast Mariners, their confidence has dried up in front of goal too.

The hosts have lost just two Australian top-flight games in 2017 and will be confident of starting this new campaign with a home victory. They’re unbeaten heading into this clash, while Melbourne Victory are utterly pointless. These themes look set to continue on Friday evening.

Our Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory bets are based heavily on the away side’s awful goalscoring record of late. Just one goal in their last four league games on the road is an inexcusable tally, with only Sydney FC conceding against the visitors since March.

Unibet’s offer of both teams not scoring, therefore, seems like an excellent value. While the hosts have scored in their last four consecutive home ties in the A-League, their opponents have been regularly falling short of the mark. In one game in February, they scored more times than they’ve managed in the eight months since then.

Our Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory picks suggest that the hosts will be settling into their last campaign with a victory in their first home contest of the season. Melbourne Victory just haven’t hit the ground running after the summer and could be in for a long, high-pressure start to the campaign.
