The Victory are comfortable sitting in 2nd on the A-League table, 6 points and +10 goal difference ahead of the Roar in 3rd. Despite being the ‘second’ best team in the competition Melbourne were absolutely putrid on Sunday against the Phoenix.
If that was what a team looks like that is building towards a crack at one of the better teams the A-League has ever produced, you might as well start engraving the grand final trophy now. Slow, tired and lifeless the Victory were pushed around by a motivated Phoenix team, led by Roly Bonevacia who scored two excellent goals from long range.
The Victory have been all over the Wanderers in their two previous encounters this season, but the Wanderers at home and in their current form will give the Victory a hiding if they don’t improve on last week’s performance.
