ADS vs MLS: Melbourne Stars have lost more games they have won so far in the competition after nine round of games. They cannot afford any further slip-up with only five games remaining before the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, Adelaide Strikers have not had favourable results lately and come into the fixture after two losses on the bounce. They must putt a better show, particularly with the ball, to not end up like the last encounter.
