Melbourne Victory were going through a string of matches where they just couldn’t seal a single triumph but on March 6, the team of Kevin Muscat faced off with Central Coast Mariners and came out on top with a 2-0 victory.
This victory is crucial for Melbourne Victory as the Australian club wants to secure a finals spot and as long as Kevin Muscat is able to keep his team in the top 6 spots of the league, then this mission can certainly be achieved.
Besart Berisha and Fahid Ben Khalfallah scored the goals of Melbourne Victory’s triumph over Central Coast. This triumph was the 9th of Kevin Muscat and his team as they added 3 more points to their total tally which reached 33 and solidified the 5th position of the Australian League.
There only are 4 league matches remaining before the A-League reaches it’s end and every single point or win that is secured from any club can make a huge difference upon the end of the season.
According to the head coach of Melbourne Victory, Kevin Muscat stated that even though the season is reaching it’s final stages it still is very hard to predict which club is going to snatch the top spot as well as which ones will be hanging on to a final spot in the A-League. He said he fancied his chances of picking the winner of the Derby with StanJames more than picking the Championship winners.
“It’s very very tight at this point in time, which is great for the competition. Every time everyone puts their mortgage on someone pulling away, it becomes a bad bet and when someone you think’s excluded and not in the race they come knocking on the door. Keep your money in your pocket.” Melbourne Victory’s Kevin Muscat said.
The upcoming match of Melbourne Victory is against Suwon Bluewings and Kevin Muscat is hoping that his squad can continue their recent rise in form and collect a 2nd successive triumph.
