First vs second: Victory vs Sydney
In round 20 of the A-League, league leaders Melbourne Victory will take on second placed Sydney FC in a battle of the top two teams.
Victory is on a good run at the moment having won 13 points from its last six matches compared to only 9 for Sydney but Sydney has won its last two matches.
In their last match at the Etihad Stadium Sydney came out victors with a 3-nil win over their rivals and it was then Victory's biggest loss at home.
