Gauci; Marrone, Timotheou, Elsey, Cavallo; D'Arrigo, Juande, Mauk; Halloran, Juric, Goodwin
We say: Melbourne Victory 1-2 Adelaide United
Melbourne Victory will be desperate to end the campaign after their poor performances this season. They have picked up just four wins so far and are second-bottom in the league standings. While the visitors have stumbled in recent weeks, they are on course to secure a top-half finish thanks to their impressive start to the campaign. We predict Adelaide United will claim all three points as they have a stronger and more experienced squad.
