We take a look at Saturday afternoons (13/4/2019) A-League match which is between the Melbourne City and Adelaide United. Melbourne City go into the match as favourites but we think there is a bit of value in this game.
When: Saturday 13 April, 5:35pm
Where: AAMI Park

Another game with plenty on implications on the makeup of the A-League top six as fifth visits six with one point between them.
The winner will leap up to fourth place (at least temporarily) and City will be looking to build on a positive if not perfect win over Brisbane last weekend.
Adelaide had a huge win over Wellington on Sunday but will have to go into this game with their striking force further depleted after the red card picked up by Apostolos Stamatelopoulos in that victory.
On their day City is still a tough out for any team, it’s just hard to know when that day will come but this pick is more based on the available talent they have at their disposal.
