Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
A top of the table clash closes out Round 18 of the A-League with the Victory hosting Perth and what a game this is shaping up to be.
If the Glory pick up all three points here it would put a huge dent in the Victory’s title hopes extending the gap out to seven points with nine games remaining.
That is why it is imperative for the Victory to ensure that they come out of this game with all three points and close the gap with a trip to Perth on the cards for later this season.
AAMI Park is a fortress for the Victory with nine wins and three draws from their last 13 at the venue, however their only loss came to the Glory in October.
A high scoring Victory win is the play here with plenty of value on offer for this game.
