Western United vs Sydney FC Preview & Prediction
Sydney FC will be aiming to climb into second spot on the ladder when they come up against a struggling Western United outfit on Saturday in the A-League.
Reigning premiers Sydney are starting to click into gear after a solid but unspectacular season, with the side going undefeated in 11 of their last 13 games.
Brazilian striker Bobo has scored four goals in his last four games and with Adam Le Fondre not far from a return, the Sky Blues are looking good to challenge runaway Melbourne City in the finals.
However, Sydney first must stamp their ticket to the finals. Only one point separates Sydney in third and the Wanderers in seventh, so Steve Corica’s side must keep winning in order to ease some pressure.
After a last-start draw with the bottom-placed Newcastle Jets, Sydney will be keen to make a statement in Ballarat.
Western United have hit a wall in recent weeks and head into this encounter on the back of three consecutive defeats.
United were looking good to break into the top six and continue their push up the ladder, but they’ve gone in the opposite direction, losing 2-1 to Brisbane, 5-0 to the Wanderers and 3-0 to Perth.
Mark Rudan’s side have conceded 10 goals and scored just one in their current losing streak and will need considerable improvement to upset Sydney and get their finals charge back on track.
Sydney haven’t been setting the world on fire, but they are proving hard to beat. United are in terrible form right now and don’t have the best record in Ballarat. Sydney should be able to come away with all three points on Saturday.
