The Scout: A-League Semi-Finals

Melbourne Victory vs Western United

Melbourne Victory scored a 1-0 win in the first leg against Western United off the back of a Jake Brimmer goal. Western United must now push the pace of the game and look for goals in this elimination semi-final.

Western United will implement a similar game plan as they did in game one, leaning on their defensive structure to control the game. Tony Popovic will also have his men focused on defense meaning we could be set for another hard-fought slog.

Suggested Bet: Melbourne Victory to Win @ $1.90*

Melbourne City vs Adelaide United

Melbourne City threw everything but the kitchen sink at Adelaide United in their opening leg and despite having 13 attempts at goal, they were unable to score, with the game ending 0-0.

Despite having a very stingy and stubborn defense, Adelaide United will be put to the ultimate test by Melbourne City who only had two goalless games in the entire A-League season.

Melbourne City striker Jamie Maclaren ended the A League season with 15 goals winning the Golden Boot. Although he was not at his clinical best in the first leg, I’m expecting he will be more precise in this fixture.

Suggested Bet: Jamie Maclaren First Goal Scorer @ $3.65*

*Odds correct as at 1pm, 20th May 2022.
