Odds: 1.95

Western United

In three previous face-to-face meetings, Melbourne won by goal margin or more and it is looking good at home this season. Reaching the final will not be easy. Western can give a fight and, probably, draw in regulation time, as it was in the recent match with Adelaide

Melbourne City

Melbourne City finished second in the regular season and therefore got a place in the semifinals automatically. A few extra days of rest in comparison with the opponent can play a role in determining the finalist of the tournament.

The team finished the championship with shock, having won five victories in eight matches. In the last game of the championship, Western United was defeated 3:1. We also note the winnings against the leader “Sydney” 2:0 and the fourth place “Brisbane Roar” 1:0. The only defeat happened on a visit to Newcastle Jets 1:2.

Western United

Western United are fellow countrymen of Melbourne City. To reach the semifinals, the fifth-placed club had to overcome the resistance of Brisbane Roar in the quarterfinals - 1:0.

The team secured a place in the playoffs thanks to the shock final segment of the championship: seven victories were won in nine matches. It is especially worth highlighting the away victory over the regular season winner Sydney, which happened away - 2:1, as well as the defeat of Adelaide 5:1 and Central Coast Mariners 6:2.


Even in spite of a brilliant finish in the championship, we do not see Western as the favorite of this meeting. Bookmakers agree with this. However, we will not dare to predict a clear victory for Melbourne, but we advise you to bet on its unbeatenness. At the same time, despite the statistics of personal meetings, it is unlikely that we will see a shower of balls in the playoffs.

Our forecast is a double chance of Melbourne + total goals under (3.5), for which 1XBet offers odds of 1.95
