WWL Preview: Melbourne Victory v Perth Glory
Melbourne Victory host Perth Glory this weekend
The stakes are higher than ever for this highly anticipated thriller between the Melbourne Victory and Perth Glory!
The winner of this match will take the fourth spot and set themselves up for a genuine crack at the title, as we move into the business end of the season.
Sitting in 6th place, the Victory girls will be feeling the pinch as the pressure is on more than ever to secure a win and collect the three points.
A massive crowd can be expected at Saturday-s match at AAMI Park, given that fans will be spoilt with an exclusive double header. The women-s match will feature as curtain raiser to the Hyundai A-League fixture between Melbourne Victory FC and Perth Glory FC.
Captain Melissa Barbieri (Bubs) will lead her team into the game fresh following a bye last week, and the team will need every advantage, including that sea of blue in the stands, in order to overcome fourth-placed Glory!
The Glory was defeated by Sydney last week 2-0, but will take confidence from the loss and the fact that the final score was not indicative of how the match actually played out.
Westfield Matilda Collette McCallum dominated in the midfield, but found it difficult to produce effective plays that resulted in goals.
Both Perth and Melbourne needs the precious three points, so this match will undoubtedly be fiercely competitive and great to watch!
