The A-League is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Macarthur FC take on Melbourne Victory on Friday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win this game.

Melbourne Victory are in third place in the A-League standings and have exceeded expectations so far this season. The away side edged Newcastle Jets to a 2-1 victory last week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

Macarthur FC, on the other hand, are in sixth place in the league table at the moment and have been inconsistent this year. The Bulls slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Western United in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.
