NPL preview: Victory v Box Hill

NPL preview: Victory v Box Hill

Melbourne Victory is out to bounce back in the NPL 3 Victoria when it hosts Box Hill United at Epping Stadium on Saturday.

Preview

Victory suffered a 4-2 loss away to City at Parade College in the Melbourne Derby in Round 2.

Anthony Leban scored a second-half penalty for Victory, while Alexander Tsimopoulos was also on the scoresheet in the defeat.

Victory trailed 2-0 and 3-1 against City and was unable to find a way back into the encounter.

After opening the campaign with a draw against the Whittlesea Ranges, Victory has one point from two matches.

Goalkeeper Marko Bulic missed the clash against City through suspension, but is set to return on Saturday.

Victory welcomes the unbeaten Box Hill to Epping Stadium in Round 3.

The last meeting between the Clubs was in May 2019, when they played out a 2-2 draw.

Player in focus

After his heroics for Victory on the way to the Club’s Australia Cup title, Leban has made a decent start to the NPL 3 Victoria season. The midfielder was on the scoresheet with a spot-kick against City.
