The A-League features another edition of the Melbourne Derby this weekend as Melbourne City take on Melbourne Victory on Saturday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win this game.

Melbourne City are at the top of the A-League standings and have been in impressive form this season. The reigning champions stunned Sydney FC with a 4-0 victory in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.

Melbourne Victory, on the other hand, are in third place in the league table at the moment and have punched above their weight so far. The home side edged Perth Glory to a 1-0 victory last week and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.

Melbourne Victory vs Melbourne City Prediction

Melbourne City are back at the top of the league table but will need to work hard to stay ahead of an in-form Western United side. The hosts have lethal attacking players in their ranks and have a point to prove in this fixture.

Melbourne Victory have punched above their weight this season and will be confident of another positive result this weekend. Melbourne City are the better team on paper, however, and hold a slight upper hand in this game.
