Sydney FC vs Macarthur FC Preview & Prediction
Sydney FC and Macarthur FC clash for the second time in a month on Sunday afternoon with the Sky Blues hoping to repeat their 3-0 demolition of their new rivals from January.
That match was not without controversy, with Mark Milligan getting sent off in the 20th minute for tripping and Matt Derbyshire seeing a goal disallowed by VAR in the 57th. From there, Sydney scoed three unanswered goals for what was ultimately a comfortable victory.
However, it hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing for the reigning A-League champions to start the season. Sydney are currently sitting in fifth spot with just three wins from their seven games and come into this clash on the back of a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Melbourne City mid-week.
City surged to a 3-0 lead after 53 minutes before the Sky Blues managed to claim two consolation goals in the last 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, Macarthur saw their two-match winning streak snapped in emphatic fashion by Western United last week.
Macarthur were full of confidence following a 2-0 win over Brisbane and 4-0 triumph over Adelaide coming into that match, but they were no match for Western United as they went down by a 4-1 scoreline.
Both sides have been inconsistent to start this season, which makes this match a tough one to predict. Macarthur have so far performed better away from Campbelltown this season, while Sydney have won just one of their four home matches. The Bulls are looking like the value bet on Sunday.
