It’s first up against third to launch A-League Round 7 action on Friday night as Western Sydney Wanderers play host to competition leaders Melbourne City.

Wanderers vs City kicks off at 7.30pm AEDT at Bankwest Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


Western Sydney will be looking to continue their dominant home record over City when the two top four sides clash on Friday night at Bankwest.

City have won just one of their last 11 games away from home against the Wanderers, losing seven and drawing three.

Both these teams are coming off last-start defeats, despite occupying two of the top three positions on the ladder, with the Wanderers losing 2-1 to Western United a fortnight ago before last week’s bye, while City went down in a 4-3 thriller to Brisbane last week in Redcliffe.



Although they would have been disappointed with their first A-League loss of the season, City will be delighted with how Jamie Maclaren performed after missing the last few weeks due to a hamstring injury, with the Socceroos striker netting a hat-trick.

Maclaren has now scored seven goals in three games this season and is without doubt the deadliest striker in the A-League at the moment.

The Wanderers will be out to maintain their unbeaten record at Bankwest, with Markus Babbel’s team winning two and drawing one in their three games at the venue so far.

It promises to be a great game between two sides that have made great starts to the campaign, but the Wanderers tend to lift at home, and after a week off, they are great value to come away with the three points.

Western Sydney Wanderers - $3.00
