The Big Blue is always a glorious occasion, but Sunday evening’s showdown between Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory will have a bit more spice in it than normal after the pair’s most recent A-League encounter in last season’s preliminary finals.
Sydney have been more consistent and are once again well-positioned to dominate the regular season, with two wins and two draws making them one of just two unbeaten teams (alongside Perth) over the first four games.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing for the Sky Blues however, with Steve Corica’s team losing the FFA Cup final to Adelaide and also finding it tough to put away a struggling Jets side in their last outing – and they were made to pay as Newcastle secured a late draw.
Sydney have lost just three of their last 18 home games against Victory, but this will be their first hit-out at Jubilee Oval.
Victory have won their last three away games, but they have traditionally come up short against Sydney, especially on the road.
Sydney weren’t at their best two weeks ago, but they should lift for this showdown and I think they will secure all three points.
Sydney appeared headed for the double after gliding to the Premiers Plate, but they came undone in a dramatic preliminary final with Victory.

He bounced back immediately to run from inside his own half and fire home the winner for Victory in the 117th minute to fire his side into the Grand Final, which they ultimately won for a record fourth time.
Sydney FC’s march towards back-to-back titles were brought to a sudden halt in a controversial extra-time epic by the Victory in April’s semi-final.
Having won the premiers’ plate by a mammoth 14 points, their campaign ended in uproar when coaches and players cleared their bench in a post-match melee.
Victory endured a slow start to their title defence as they were defeated by City and Perth in their first two games
But they’ve responded nicely in two recent triumphs over Newcastle and Central Coast, propelling them back up to fourth on the ladder.
Two of the most exciting teams go head-to-head on Sunday with goals almost a certainty.
Melbourne Victory are the joint hightest scorers in the league while Sydney FC are just one goal behind.
However coach Graham Arnold is gone, while Sydney have been forced to adopt three new homes as Allianz Stadium undergoes reconstruction.
