Melbourne City manager Rado Vidošić will be looking for a better result in this game following a disappointing 0-0 draw in his team's last league outing against Brisbane Roar. In that game they had 66% possession and managed 13 attempts on goal, with 3 on target, compared to Brisbane Roar who had 12 attempts and 4 on target.
It's fair to say that Vidošić will be pretty happy with his squad's ability to find the net of late, having scored 10 goals in their last 6 matches. That said, he will also be aware there is still work to do at the back, where they have shipped 4 goals in those same matches as well as some valuable points. Their goal scoring streak at home now stands at 16 games in a row. With 6 clean sheets so far this season, they have one of the best shut out records in the league.
Their strong run of form at home now gives them an unbeaten streak of 12 games in a row.
On an individual basis, Jamie Maclaren will be looking to celebrate a goal with the home fans again and continue his hot scoring streak having scored in each of Melbourne City's last 7 league games at AAMI Park.
Having taken all 3 points, with a crucial 1-0 home win over Macarthur FC in their last league game, Adelaide United will undoubtedly be very satisfied with their work. In that game they recorded 38 of the possession, with 11 attempts on goal, 4 on target. Their opponents found the target on 8 of their 21 shots on goal.
When it comes to attacking power Carl Veart will be justly satisfied with his squad's performances of late, which has seen them chalk up 5 goals in their last 6 matches. However, it hasn't all been going well, and questions remain about their defence with 9 goals lost in those 6 matches resulting in some crucial points dropped. Away goals have been high on their agenda recently, having scored in 4 of their last 6 away league games.
They're experiencing a disappointing spell of form, having lost 3 of their last 6 games and picking up only 2 wins.
With 2 goals scored in his last 6 away games for Adelaide United, Craig Goodwin will be looking to add more goals against Melbourne City in this match.
