Time: 16:30 (GMT+8) on March 7th

Venue: Marvel Stadium

Competition: 2019/20 A-League

Sydney FC is witnessing one of the best seasons in the club's history when they won 14 of 17 matches at the A-League, losing just two of them. They are also the team scoring most goals (37) while conceding just 14 times, fewer than any other clubs.

Consequently, it is not a surprise when Sydney FC is dominating the league with 43 points, 10-point higher than that of the second-position team Melbourne City.

One of the key players in Sydney FC's squad is Adam le Fondre, the veteran who used to play at the English Premier League. This season, the 33-year-old forward scored 15 goals in 17 matches he played, including a hat-trick against Brisbane Roar in December.

Meanwhile, despite winning over Adelaide United last week, Melbourne Victory sill did not find any possible ways to escape from the bottom zone of the league table. They are sinking at the 9th place and their opponent is the top team, which is very easy to predict the result of this match.

Even though Melbourne Victory has the advantage to play at the home venue, the chance for them to win this game is very small. Beating the home team will help Sydney FC go on fortifying its leading position.
