Round 4 preview: Melbourne Victory v Melbourne City
Lisa De Vanna produced the moment of the season as Melbourne Victory issued a statement of intent by dismantling Melbourne City last week and the local rivals square off again at Epping Stadium on Sunday.
De Vanna’s sensational solo goal lit up the Melbourne Derby as Big V romped to a stunning 6-0 win at CB Smith Reserve last Sunday and signalled a possible changing of the guard in the Victorian capital for the 2020/21 campaign.
Rado Vidosic’s defending Westfield W-League Premiers and Champions have collected a single point from their opening three games and will be desperate to issue a more positive response when they face the Navy Blue on Sunday.
Jeff Hopkins side, on the other hand, will aim to plunge the dagger further into City, and build on their four points collected from two games as their bid for a second Premiership in three years begins to take shape.
