Melbourne Victory vs Adelaide United match information

Time: 16:30 (GMT+8) on February 29th

Venue: Marvel Stadium

Competition: A-League 2020

Victory now haven’t won any of their last six Hyundai A-League matches following last weekend’s 1-1 draw with the Jets in Newcastle.

It has left the 2018 Champions in ninth spot and nine points adrift of the top six, and another loss to their fierce rivals would be a shattering blow to their chances of moving up the ladder.

The Reds will love nothing more than to rub salt into Victory’s wounds with a third win over their Original Rivals this season, having won 3-1 and 1-0 in both previous clashes at Coopers Stadium.

But Gertjan Verbeek’s Adelaide have a few questions of their own to answer following a shock 5-2 drubbing at the hands of Western Sydney Wanderers last Friday.

There have been 3 or more goals scored in total in each of Adelaide United's last 14 away games. Adelaide United have won just one of their last 5 A-League away games, while Melbourne Victory have only won one of their last 5 games against Adelaide United.
