Who will win Melbourne City vs Western United?
It's hard to get a reliable read on the current form of both sides heading into this contest. Western United have only played a single match so far in a 0-0 draw with Adelaide way back in the season opener on 28 December last year.
While for Melbourne City their record reads a loss and a win from 2 fixtures, but they've finished both matches with just 10 men. Scott Jamieson will miss this clash for Melbourne City after receiving a red card last time out.
Combining his absence with Western United's hunger to notch their first win against Melbourne City we're favouring them by a goal 2-1.
