Macarthur FC vs Western United Preview & Prediction
Macarthur FC and Western United have been up-and-down all season and will each be looking to build up some consistent form over the next month, starting with Friday’s clash in Campbelltown.
United are the team that come into this clash in winning form after defeating Brisbane Roar 1-0 last weekend. Midfielder Dylan Pierias’ strike in the 72nd minute was the difference between the sides.
Before that match, United had suffered back-to-back defeats to Sydney FC and the Wanderers – results that followed 4-1 and 4-3 wins over Macarthur and Melbourne Victory.
As you can see, United are all over the place at the moment – at their best they can beat anyone, but they struggle from week to week when it comes to producing their top form.
The same can be said for Macarthur. It wasn’t long go that the A-League’s newest club were in second spot on the ladder, but three losses from their last four games has seen them slip to sixth.
Macarthur have failed to score in their last two games, going down 2-0 to Central Coast and 3-0 to Melbourne City. Their last win came against reigning premiers Sydney FC on February 28, proving they can topple the best when they’re on.
It’s a tough match to predict as a result of both sides’ inconsistency, but Western United have looked marginally better for me this season and prevailed 4-1 in the only previous meeting between these teams on February 20.
