MLS vs SYS Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21
Melbourne Stars face Sydney Sixers in the final group game of the 2020-21 Big Bash League, in a repeat of last year’s final, but the two teams have fared very differently this time around. The Stars need a win in this game to stand any chance of qualifying for the play-offs after just five wins from their first 12 completed games. The match takes place on January 26 and the live action starts at 19:50 local time.
Sydney Sixers, by contrast, start the final round of fixtures in second place with eight wins so far. Defeat last time out could prove costly in terms of finishing top but they can sign off with a win that ensures they go into the Qualifier play-off in a good place. Sean Abbott’s 100th BBL wicket and Jordan Silk’s 78 could not prevent a seven-run defeat, despite hitting 181/6, against Hobart Hurricanes last time out.
Melbourne Stars have been unable to hit their past heights though. They suffered an 11-run defeat to Perth Scorchers most recently, despite Nick Larkin’s 70 from 44 balls, and go into the final round of fixtures in seventh place.

After electing to field last time out and losing, the Sixers may prefer to bat first this time.
There were runs aplenty in the most recent match at the MCG.
Rain earlier in the day will hopefully have passed on an otherwise cool evening in Melbourne.
