Macarthur FC vs Western Sydney Wanderers Preview & Prediction
Macarthur experienced a dream start to life in the A-League when they toppled new rivals the Wanderers by a 1-0 scoreline in the opening round, but it hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing for the new boys since that night.
Indeed, Macarthur have failed to win at home and have generally struggled to create in the final third, scoring just three goals after opening night, with two of them coming against the last-placed Newcastle Jets.
Macarthur’s best result at home was a 1-1 draw with Wellington, while they were comprehensively outplayed by Sydney FC in their last outing, going down 3-0 on their own turf.
Truth be told, Macarthur were fortunate to beat the Wanderers on their opening night, with Adam Federici making a number of magnificent saves to keep his side in the game.
Western Sydney have also been involved in low-scoring games this season, netting just five goals and conceding only four.
The Wanderers are unbeaten since that defeat to Macarthur, beating and drawing with the Jets, along with toppling first-placed Central Coast and drawing 1-1 with Sydney in the derby.
Carl Robinson has got his side playing disciplined football and they were unlucky not to beat Newcastle in their last outing after Bernie Ibini opened the scoring, with the Wanderers conceding a late penalty as the sides shared the spoils.
Overall, the Wanderers have been playing the more consistent football, while Macarthur look to still be finding their feet in the A-League. I’m backing the Wanderers to avenge their loss on opening night in another low-scoring affair.
