The A-League returns to the fold with another round of matches this week as Melbourne City take on Perth Glory on Wednesday. The two teams find themselves at opposite ends of the league table and have a point to prove in this fixture.

Melbourne City are currently at the top of the A-League standings and have excelled this season. The reigning champions eased past United City by a 3-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week.

Perth Glory, on the other hand, are rooted to the bottom of the league table and have endured a dismal season. The Western Australian outfit held Western Sydney Wanderers to a 1-1 draw last week and will need to take it up a notch in this match.
