Western Sydney Wanderers FC vs Sydney FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Western Sydney Wanderers suffered a second consecutive loss as Brisbane Roar were able to get a 2-0 win during the weekend. Massimo Maccarone came up with the crucial goal just before half-time, as Brisbane took advantage of Western Sydney being wasteful with their chances. In the second half, the away team secured a sizeable advantage with Ivan Franjic’s second goal. Sydney made it four consecutive wins in all competitions after beating Adelaide 1-0 on Friday. It was a tight game, settled by Bobo's 45th minute goal. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The rivalry between the two Sydney outfits resumes with this game. Sydney were unable to get the better of Western Sydney earlier in the campaign. The two teams were involved in a third consecutive stalemate at Sydney’s home, while Sydney have a much better record away against Western Sydney with three wins in the last four. After having found a sweet spot with four consecutive wins, Sydney’s confidence will be high. I would bet on a victory for Sydney FC in this game. Western Sydney may be bottom of the table in terms of scoring goals, but the club’s best outcome has been at the back with only 12 goals conceded so far. Sydney may be pragmatic in their approach and there will be little to separate to rival teams in an intense derby. I see a strong reason behind going with less than 2.5 goals in the game.

Western Sydney Wanderers FC Preview

Western Sydney have been struggling at the other end of the table compared to their local rivals, as the inability to convert chances into goals has led the team down on several occasions. After a string of draws, Western Sydney have now suffered back-to-back 2-0 defeats. These results have highlighted the biggest problem for the club – scoring goals. Eight matches into the season, Western Sydney have the worst offensive record with only nine goals scored. At the back, however, the team have been quite good with 12 goals conceded. Oriol Riera is the top scorer at WSW with four goals in eight appearances.

Sydney FC Preview

After a couple of setbacks in the first few months of the season, it appears that Sydney are starting to hit the sweet spot in terms of form. The 1-0 win over Adelaide was a trademark result for the team last season, as they had the best defence by a significant margin. For the 2017-18 A-league campaign, however, Sydney have been quite mediocre at the back with eight goals conceded in nine matches. Yet, the club are on a strong run of form with five wins in the last six. This has helped establish a five-point advantage over Newcastle Jets. Bobo remains the crucial player for Sydney and also the top scorer at the club by a significant distance. He has netted six goals in nine appearances so far.
