IT’S been a quiet month for me and he’s still in a double digit loss for October won’t be going in too heavily over the next couple of days.
He says: Before the season started I posted a couple times saying how Melbourne City should be good for goals in the A League again this year and they haven’t disappointed.
Like last year though they were always good for a consolation and that’s the trend so far conceding three at home to Perth last week and once against their rivals Victory prior.
Their only clean sheet was in Wellington but Phoenix had multiple efforts and couldn’t get their goal. Adelaide lost star man Bruce Djite to a Korean side in the summer but still have the firepower to get goals here.
They have scored in seven of their eight visits in their history and scored twice or more in six. Their early-season form may not be anything to shout about but Melbourne’s defence will give opposition chances no matter who it is and I fancy BTTS here with an extra goal for either side likely.

DC United host Montreal Impact tonight in the second East conference playoff game in the MLS. Montreal have struggled without Didier Drogba as they are relying mostly on Piatti to carry their weight. DC United have only kept one clean sheet since August 14 but have been able to score plenty of goals, 27 in their last 10.
Patrick Mullins is DC’s top scorer this season and was rested on the final day in their loss in Orlando. He scored in the home tie this year and I’m on him to net.
