Melbourne Victory v Perth Glory Saturday 14th August 7:30pm Venue : AAMI Park
Strap yourself in… we-re bringing the Victory home! AAMI Park is set to become a blue-and-white fortress this Saturday night. It-s Melbourne Victory v Robbie Fowler-s Perth Glory. Let-s make it a sell out!…
…If last weekend-s results are anything to go by, entertainment is guaranteed at AAMI Park this Saturday night.
In their respective opening fixtures, both teams scored and conceded three goals, boasted three different goal-scorers, were, at some stage, behind and in front, and both succumbed to late equalisers which denied them a winning start.
Perth Glory midfielder Adriano Pellegrino is set to make his 50th Hyundai A-League appearance at AAMI Park, while former Liverpool and England striker Robbie Fowler looks to open his account for his new side, and get his overall Hyundai A-League goal tally into double figures following the nine goals he bagged for last weekend-s opponents, North Queensland Fury, last season.
While, in the 15 Hyundai A-League encounters between the two sides, honours have proved fairly even (Victory have won six times, Glory five times with four draws), Glory have never won an away game against Melbourne Victory. Ominously for the visitors, the last time the sides met in Melbourne, at the Etihad Stadium, Victory smashed Glory 6-2, with Robbie Kruse helping himself to a hat-trick.
