Perth Glory to Win

In their recent competitive engagements, both Perth Glory and Western Sydney Wanderers entertained Western United. Both matches ended in defeats for United, the Wanderers hammering five while Glory making the goalkeeper pick out the ball from the net thrice. Perth will be playing at home, while Sydney are on the road, where they are winless in four attempts. The odds and history are in Perth's favour, who have favourites after winning three of the last four duels between them.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

The last three successive fixtures at the HBF Park have seen three or more goals. The Wanderers last match on the road was roughly a month ago, the nine-goal thriller with Melbourne Victory. The Sydney-based outfit also succumbed to a 4-1 defeat to Melbourne City on the road. Couple this with Perth's record of 75 per cent of their A-League fixtures seeing three or more goals, the Over 2.5 should come to fruition.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

In the ten matches Glory have played at home, only two have seen them keep a clean sheet. In the same amount of away games, the Wanderers have not failed once in making the scoreboard tick. Like Glory, they have two clean sheets in this period. With both sides showing equal capability in front of the goal, there should be goals on either side of the pitch. This is further aided by Bruno Fornaroli and Bruce Kamau coming into the fixture with goals in successive fixtures.

Perth Glory vs Western Sydney Wanderers: Team News and Match Preview

Perth Glory

Entering in the final third of the 2020/21 A-League campaign, Perth have the form on their side and can make a concerted push for a top-six placement. They are six points off the pace but have a game in hand. However, to progress further, they need to address the defensive issues that has let them down this season. While Bruno Fornaroli has continued to score regularly, they have conceded 36 goals, more than the bottom-placed Newcastle Jets.

Western Sydney Wanderers

While Melbourne City claims the top slot, Western Sydney Wanderers are one of six teams vying for second place. Despite a third of the season yet to play, each fixture is a cup final for the teams in consideration. Kenny Miller's men have impressed at home but their form on the road remains precarious. They are winless in four away trips, conceding eleven goals in the process. The defence needs to account for its presence as Bruce Kamau and co. perform their tasks at the tip of the attack.
