The inconsistency of both Melbourne City and Perth was summed up in their last match-up on Sunday afternoon. Perth should have shut the game down at 4-1 entering into the last 10 minutes. Instead Melbourne City fired up and scored 3 goals in 10 minutes and it finished 5-4.
All of the matches between City and Glory have been high scoring this season and whilst both teams will not want to concede an early goal they have given up goals to Andy Keogh, Tim Cahill and Diego Castro in the first 10 minutes in each game they have played.
When: 19:07 | Sunday 23/04/2017
Where: AAMI Park
Watch: Fox Sports
FINAL SAY: Both teams showed patches of form and weakness on the weekend. Perth has already demonstrated this season that they are not intimidated by playing at AAMI Stadium which is hardly a home ground fortress for Melbourne City with a crowd of 13,000 expected and hardly any of the top tier of the stadium full.
The Glory have conceded the equal most goals of any team in the competition (level with wooden spoon winners Newcastle Jets) and have scored the second most goals behind ladder leader Sydney FC. Expect both teams to score.
Perth will have a much better chance of winning if goal keeper Liam Reddy plays inside the penalty box this week instead of journeying through the midfield like a FIFA 2017 character.
