Melbourne City Are In Great Form

Melbourne City are playing great this season. With their last victory over Western Sydney Wanderers, they just set a club record with sic wins in a row for the first time in the team’s history. Therefore, it is not surprising that City are climbing higher and higher on the ladder. They are currently standing in 2nd place in the A-League standings but they have every chance to take 1st place very soon.

This season City played a total of 12 matches until now and gathered 24 points compared to Central Coast Mariners who are the 1st on the list. Melbourne City won eight of the 12 matches and suffered altogether four defeats.

Regarding the players, Jamie Maclaren is amongst the top scorers this season. We can mark 12 goals to his name which is incredible considering that the team made a total of 26 goals.

While nothing in football is a guarantee, it would be a pretty safe bet on any of the several sports betting apps available in Australia to say that Melbourne City will be making finals this season.

City’s Performance in March

City’s performance is outstanding this month, their players just continue scoring goals after goals. They didn’t only win all the five matches they played, but they conceded only one goal to their opponents during the matches. However, they scored not less than 17 goals!

Western Sydney Wanderers – Melbourne City (2 March)

Melbourne City had a good start this month, on 2 March they had a victory over Western Sydney Wanderers. Unfortunately, Andrian Luna had to miss out on the match due to an injury but this didn’t stop City from winning. Jamie Maclaren scored two goals, one in the 6th minute and for the other stunning goal, we had to wait until the second half (54’).

While Western Sydney tried their best to score a goal, Andrew Nabbout’s shot was the closest they got to it who finally could only hit the post. The match ended with 2-0.

Melbourne Victory – Melbourne City (6 March)

During the Melbourne Victory – Melbourne City match on 6 March, City had the opportunity to show everyone that they can easily beat Melbourne Victory. They clearly showed no mercy: the team scored altogether six goals during the match (five of them in the second half) while Victory couldn’t kick the ball into the net even once.

Melbourne City – Macarthur FC (12 March)

The third match City played in March was against Macarthur FC. Perhaps not surprisingly, City stormed past Macarthur FC very quickly. They scored two goals in just three minutes (23’ and 25’) and in the case of both goals, the credit goes to Jamie Maclaren. Later Craig Noone managed to score a goal (35’) too. As there were no goals in the second half, the match ended with City’s 3-0 victory.

Melbourne City – Central Coast Mariners (22 March)

On 22 March Melbourne City played against Central Coast Mariners at AAMI Park where they had a fantastic two-goal win. For this match, Adrian Luna could finally return from his former hamstring injury.

Due to the goals scored by Jamie Maclaren (31’) and Nathaniel Atkinson (56’), City were able to report their fifth win in a row.

Melbourne City – Western Sydney Wanderers (26 March)

The last game City had was against Western Sydney Wanderers last Friday.

Interestingly, Melbourne City ended all their above-mentioned matches with a clean sheet. But this time the consecutive clean sheets came to an end due to Western Sydney’s goal (Bernie Ibini 21’).

After this goal, City didn’t give up. They got back to work and 12 minutes later they had already scored a goal (Craig Noone 33’). Then they added three more goals (Andrew Nabbout 52’, Craig Noone 55’, Jamie Maclaren 90+2’) to it just to be sure they got fair revenge on Western Sydney because of their goal.

We can’t wait to see how long Melbourne City can go with their victories. But one thing is sure: with their current winning streak, they became the team to beat. Their next match will be played against Western United on 1st April who didn’t perform very well until now, so City have a good chance to win again.
