MLV vs ADL Dream11: Melbourne Victory will be looking for a much-improved performance against rivals Adelaide United on Saturday night after their embarrassing six-goal loss to Melbourne City. Victory have it all to do to put their humiliating loss to local rivals Melbourne City behind them after they were on the end of a thrashing in their derby last week. That is now ten goals conceded in their last two outings while they have lost five of their last six. That is a worrying run of form, especially as Adelaide United have won their last three matches. They edged Newcastle Jets last week and with the hosts on such a low, Adelaide can keep their good run going with another success.
