Competition: 2019/2020 W-League

After a devastating defeat in the Derby to City, Melbourne Victory Women have come back strongly in the previous round with a thrashing victory of 7-0 over Newcastle Jets Women, which is the match having the biggest deficit in the W-League history.

With this win, Melbourne Victory Women secured their 3rd position, being a point more than Western Sydney Wanderers Women, who is holding the last spot in the Finals Series, and three points away from Brisbane Roar Women at the 5th place.

Natasha Dowie continued to demonstrate a stellar form and added another goal to her name, which is reigning at the first place in the league’s top scorer rankings.

Sydney Women have not been performing well in recent ties with two losses in the last five matches. One of them is the 1-2 defeat on home ground to Perth Glory in the previous round. However, Sydney Women are still ranking 2nd and surely progressing to the Finals Series to continue their journey of defending the title.

Their star striker Remy Siemsen is also ranking 1st in the top scorer list along with Natasha Dowie with 7 goals, thus the Melbourne Victory Women’s defence will surely have to keep a close eye on her.

In the last meeting between the two early on in the season, Sydney Women prevailed with a 3-0 win. Nevertheless, the upcoming fixture is expected to be much more intense since Melbourne Victory need at least a draw to make sure their berth in the Finals Series.

Melbourne Victory vs Sydney Women potential lineups: 

Melbourne Victory: C. Dumont, L. Alleway, J. McCormick, E. Menges, A. Beard, A. Longo, A. Jackson, H. Hanson, N. Dowie, D. Jenkins, M. Ayres
