Betting suggests that the most one-sided match of the round will materialise in Melbourne on Sunday afternoon and I am more than happy to agree with the market. We take a look at Sunday’s (03/11/2019) A-League Round 4 match which is between the Melbourne City and Wellington Phoenix.
When: Sunday 3rd November, 4:00PM
Where: AAMI Park

Melbourne City have returned to action in excellent form this time and the acquisition of Jamie Maclaren genuinely looks as though it could be the difference in winning a championship. The twenty-six-year-old is in career-best form and was simply outstanding against Western United last week, netting both of his side’s goals.
The Phoenix meanwhile have struggled to get off the ground and are anchored to the bottom of the ladder following three-consecutive losses. They’ve only lost by one goal on all three occasions, but two matches were played at home and they face another step up in class on Sunday.
Tip: Melbourne City at $1.67
