Western Sydney Wanderers to Win

This A-League fixture witnesses two of the least performing sides come face to face. Combined together, they have shipped in 26 goals in their past five games, with only ten to show for themselves. While Victory are playing for honours, Wanderers can still make the play-off spots. They need points to add distance between themselves and the chasing pack, who have played three games less.

Total Goals Over 2.5

In their eight home fixtures, Victory average 3.8 goals per home game. By the Melbourne-based outfit’s standards, the Wanderers pale in comparison but their 2.8 goals make for good reading. With both sides struggling to keep clean sheets with a plethora of mistakes at the back, chances will be created on the night. This should give their attackers plenty of opportunities to get on the scoreboard and get out of their scoring rut.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The hosts are underdogs in this fixture and with good reason. They have been unable to stem the flow of goals with sixteen goals shipped in their last five home games. However, they have only been kept silent in two of these meetings. With the Wanderers conceding in all but one of their five away trips, expect scorers to be troubled by both attackers.

Melbourne Victory vs Western Sydney Wanderers Fixture Preview

Melbourne Victory

While Melbourne City are leading the A-League with a game in hand, crosstown rivals Melbourne Victory are on the other end of the spectrum. Belying their name, Victory are rooted to the bottom of the points table and only have four points from their last five competitive outings at home. This run has seen them concede an embarrassing 16 goals. They were hammered 7-0 by Melbourne City last time out and will Steve Kean will be looking to avoid a repeat against their much-fancied rivals.

Western Sydney Wanderers

The difference between Melbourne Victory and Western Sydney Wanderers seems to be huge on paper but there is more to what meets the eye. WSW’s recent form is worse than their peers, accumulating three points from the available fifteen. This run has seen their title challenge fizzle out as they have slid down the points table. However, Kenny Miller and Co. can still revive their season as the season enters its final stretch. Bruce Kamau will have to step up his game, with the Wanderers faithful hoping he continues his rich vein of form that has seen him score three in three games.
