Both sides come into this match following losses to Brisbane Roar and Sydney FC respectively. Neither side will be playing finals this season meaning Victory have missed the last three finals series and Adelaide extends their run of never having played past the regular season.  

Despite this, the last five meetings between these two sides have been high scoring with an average of over four goals being scored.

Adelaide has yet to keep a clean sheet and have conceded the second most goals in the league. Down the other end of the park, the Reds have scored the second fewest goals in the league and only one less than their opponents.

Victory’s defence has performed better than Adelaide’s on paper this season and this may just give them the advantage in this clash.

Melbourne and Adelaide have showed glimpses this season and finishing on a high will be important to both sides.

Player to watch: Natasha Dowie will be the one to watch as she often is for the Victory. Last time these sides met she was able to score a double. If she is allowed to play her game, Victory look good.

Last time they met: Victory ran out 4-0 winners over the Reds last time they met with a Natasha Dowie double and goals to Lia Privitelli and Jeon Ga-Eul.
