Prediction

Match Preview


Can the Wanderers extend their unbeaten start to the season when they travel to Geelong to face a confident United outfit on Saturday night?

Western Sydney are unbeaten across their first four matches of the season, including registering a memorable derby triumph over rivals Sydney FC, but they relinquished top spot on the ladder last week after a 0-0 stalemate with Brisbane.

The Wanderers would have been expecting to beat the winless Roar at Bankwest, but they couldn’t find a way to break down Brisbane’s defence and had to be content with a share of the spoils.



Markus Babbel will be determined to return to the winners circle this week, but the Wanderers will have their work cut out against a United side brimming with confidence.

After going down 2-0 inside the first 10 minutes, United mounted a superb comeback, scoring three goals from the 16th minute to the 51st to beat Melbourne Victory 3-2 and secure the best win of the club’s short history.

Scott McDonald opened his account in the A-League by netting the winner, lifting United to fourth spot on the ladder and further establishing themselves as genuine title contenders this season.

It will be United’s first A-League match against NSW opposition, and it promises to be a cracking encounter. Both sides are in good form and boast exciting players all over the field. I’m not sure I can split them at this stage of the season.

Western United - $2.00
