Melbourne Victory v Newcastle Jets at AAMI Park, 6.30pm

Head to head: Victory 17, Jets 17, drawn 9

Last clash: Round 21, 2018-19, Jets 2-0 at GMHBA Stadium

Victory arrested their poor start to the season with a superb performance in the Melbourne derby against City. Fresh off the bye, they will want to kick off 2020 in style against Ernie Merrick's Jets, who are coming off a draw with Brisbane. They'll be without skipper Ola Toivonen, who is suspended.

Key: Robbie Kruse has been a masterful inclusion for Victory this season, and with Ola Toivonen missing, he and former Jet Andrew Nabbout will need to be at their freewheeling best.

Tip: Victory

BYE: Perth Glory
