Isuzu UTE A-League Match Preview | Victory v Adelaide

Match Details

Melbourne Victory v Adelaide United
Date: Saturday 4 November
Kick-off Time: 7:45pm
Venue: AAMI Park


It’s two wins from two games for Victory who head into a huge Saturday night clash with Adelaide United brimming with confidence.

The last and only previous time the Men’s team began a season with more consecutive wins was in 2006/08 when the Club won their first eight games in a row.

Bruno Fornaroli stole the show last week after scoring four goals as Tony Popovic’s side romped to a 5-3 win over Newcastle Jets in their first game at AAMI Park for the season.

The boys in blue now face a rampant Adelaide United who have started the season in similar fashion having won their opening two matches of the season.

The Reds are coming off a 6-0 thumping of Melbourne City with young gun Nestory Irankunda the star once again.

Three of the last five A-League Men games between the Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United have ended in a 1-all draw including each of our last two encounters.

It’s an Original Rivalry top-of-the-table clash at what is expected to be a packed-out AAMI Park.
