Round 3 Preview: Melbourne City v Melbourne Victory

The stakes are high as Westfield W-League Premiers, Melbourne City, and last year’s league runners-up, Melbourne Victory both go searching for their first win of the new season in Sunday’s Melbourne Derby.

Rado Vidosic’s Champions recorded a 0-0 draw with Brisbane Roar to open the 2020/21 campaign before their much-changed side slipped to a 2-1 loss against Canberra United, with captain Jenna McCormick scoring her first goal for her new club.

That defeat halted a 17-game undefeated streak for City and Jeff Hopkins’ Navy Blue will seek to take advantage of their neighbours’  early-season malaise when the Victorian clubs square off on Sunday afternoon at Frank Holohan Soccer Complex.

Big V opened their campaign with a goalless draw against Brisbane Roar in Round 2 as Lisa De Vanna made her Westfield W-League return, and the Westfield Matildas all-time record goalscorer will be determined to open her account for 2020/21 against Victory’s bitter rivals, City.
