Sydney Win 

Sydney FC are the crème de la crème of the A-League and have won the joint-most premierships in the league’s history. They are the current premiers (best regular-season record) and champions (won the finals series after the regular season). Historically, Sydney FC have won more of the faceoffs between the two teams with 46% of the wins whilst the Wanderers have half that with 23%.  Sydney are also unbeaten in their last 5 games, as opposed to Western Sydney being winless in their last 5.

Both Teams to Score 

 In the last 5 games between the teams, both sides scored in 3 of them with no bore draws in any. Also, Western Sydney and their namesake both have over 1 goal per game in the league this season so have no issues in the goalscoring department. None of the recent face-offs had over 2 goals total so it won’t be a goal-fest, but a bore draw is unlikely as well.

Double Chance: Western Sydney Wanderers or Sydney 

Sydney FC are likely to win the tie due to their pedigree in the A-League as well as their current 5-game unbeaten run. However, 3 of their last 5 games ended in draws, with two of those seeing them concede 2 goals each. History, recency and pedigree favor Sydney FC but Western Wanderers could pull a surprise with Syndey’s defence being so porous in the last few games.
