Team News: ACL Play-Off / Women’s Semi-Final

Melbourne Victory’s Men and Women teams are preparing for two huge matches with strong squads to select from.

Tony Popovic had a full list of players available to fly to Japan to face Vissel Kobe for a place in the AFC Champions League and opted for a 22-man squad.

Rai Marchan and Matt Spiranovic haven’t featured in recent weeks through injury but haven’t been ruled out for Tuesday night.

It puts the team in a strong position to challenge the J-League club and continue their resurgent form.

Kyra Cooney-Cross will miss the Women’s Semi-Final through suspension.

Amy Jackson is a chance to return while Melina Ayres could play an expanded role after featuring late in her return last week.
