Sydney FC to Win
After four successive fixtures on the road, Western United finally return to the comforts of the GMHBA Stadium. With just a single point to show from their away trips, manager Mark Rudan has a tough task on his hands to change their fortunes. Rudan's task is made complicated by the visit of reigning champions Sydney FC. The visitors are winless in their last three away trips but have enough in the tank to claim the three points on offer. History is on Sydney's side, the Sky Blues winning the last meeting in Victoria.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
In their last three fixtures, Western United have conceded ten goals with just one in reply. While all those fixtures were on the road, their form in familiar surroundings improve. They have scored four goals whilst conceding just once across the same number of games. Sydney have been prolific on the road, scoring eight goals in their last four away trips. With both sides showing the tendency to score and concede, more of the same should be expected.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
During their goal-laden away form, Sydney have only kept a clean sheet once. Western United have been more apt in defence in the same amount of home games, allowing their rivals to get past their defences twice in four matches. However, the hosts have been shambolic in their last three successive fixtures, conceding ten goals. With the defence of both outfits struggling to keep up with their respective rivals, goalkeepers will be picking the balls out of their nets on either side of the pitch.
Western United vs Sydney: Team News and Match Preview
The Victorians finished in fifth place last season but are looking from the outside for their last competitive fixture of the regular season. They need the three points on offer to dislodge Brisbane Roar from the final Play-Off Quarter-Final slot. Mark Rudan will have to find a solution to his attacking woes if they are to capitalize on the outside chance. With Besart Berisha failing to score in his last seven outings, the onus will be on the supporting cast to deliver the goals.
With the 0-0 draw with Brisbane Roar, Central Coast Mariners dislodged Sydney FC from the second spot. Sydney needs to regain their placement or else risk the longer route to the A-League Play-Off Semi-Finals. The Sky Blues have been let down by their recent slump, conceding goals at untimely intervals to lose points. Head Coach Steve Corica will have to address their issues at the back while confidence remains in the abilities of Bobo and Kosta Barbarouses to deliver at the front.
