In their most recent match, Melbourne Victory played against Macarthur, with the final score of the game being a 0:1 away victory. Performing at home was of little help throughout the last ten Melbourne Victory meetings, as the hosts won three times and the guests won six times. Only one of the side’s last 10 outings resulted in a draw. Looking at the team’s previous five encounters, it becomes apparent that two featured over 2.5 goals and none witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these, Melbourne Victory’s efforts paid off, as the team managed to prevent goals in their net three times and failed to score on their own also in three encounters. During the team’s recent five outings, the goalkeepers had to pull the ball out of the nets 10 times altogether.
