It’s the A-League’s Light Blue Derby… since City continue to insist they are City Blue which is different to Sydney’s Sky Blue… it’s all light blue to me anyway. We take a look at Sunday (29/12/2019) A-League Round 12 match which is between the Sydney FC and Melbourne City.
When: Sunday 29th December, 6:30PM
Where: Netstrata Jubilee Stadium

Anyway, City still has just enough of that Melbourne Heart DNA in them to make you wary of backing them on a big stage, just look at their Derby no-show.
Plus Sydney will be smarting after dropping two points in Wellington last time out.
I’m expecting a big Sydney bounce back game here and they increase the gap between themselves and City by three points.
