A-League Tipping – Saturday August 1
Melbourne City FC v Sydney FC
ANZ Stadium | 5:00 PM AEST (AEST)
This is certainly the match of the round, with 1st place Sydney FC taking on 3rd place Melbourne City. Melbourne City actually opens as slight $2.50 favourites here, with Sydney at $2.63 and the Draw at $3.75.
Despite a loss to Newcastle last time out, Sydney has secured themselves 1st place, currently 11 points ahead of Wellington. They’ve put up a very strong record of 16 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses this season, coupled with a +27-goal difference.
Melbourne is actually yet to play since the season was suspended and are the last side to get back to action. They’ve probably got the motivational edge here, but they aren’t the more talented side and I’d expect them to be rusty here.
I think instilling them as favourites is a bit optimistic, with the Draw at $3.75 looking like good value. If I had to put a scorecast on it, 1-1 at $6.50 currently looks like the best bet. I can see both sides getting on the scoresheet here, but wouldn’t necessarily go over 2.5.
