Western United will welcome Melbourne Victory FC to AAMI Park for a matchday 23 fixture in Australia A-League. The last meeting on 27th February 2021 ended in a Western United 4-3 win. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. Western United has won 4 matches, and Melbourne Victory FC failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 3.80 goals, while both teams score 80% of the time.

Western United's latest fixture against Wellington Phoenix ended in an away 3-0 loss. I expected more from Western United. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.

Melbourne Victory FC's recent game against Adelaide United ended in a home 0-1 loss. Dark Blues's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.

Since the start of the season, Western United is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 13 games on home soil. Western United's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 38% of home games.

Melbourne Victory FC has picked up 4 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Melbourne Victory FC wins 0.62 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Melbourne Victory FC kept a clean sheet in just 8% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Western United lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 46% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.

Dark Blues got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Friday.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Western United wins on average 1.62 points per home game, compared to 0.62 points per away game for Melbourne Victory FC. My prediction is Western United to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.68 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 39% of Western United's home and Melbourne Victory FC's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don't think this one on Friday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 43% of Western United's home and Melbourne Victory FC's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
