Perth Glory vs Western United Preview & Prediction
Western United are tasked with a must-win clash against Perth if they want to keep pace with the top six when the two sides face off on Wednesday night.
United are currently languishing in eighth spot on the ladder after suffering back-to-back defeat against the Wanderers and Brisbane.
Having played one more game than Brisbane in seventh, United won’t want to drop any more points as the race for a finals spot heats up.
However, United will need to improve considerably from their 5-0 loss to the Wanderers in their last outing if they want to return to the winners circle here.
Meanwhile, Perth grabbed just their second win from 13 matches when they edged Melbourne Victory 2-1 at home on Sunday night.
It was a much-needed win for Glory, but the fact remains that they haven’t defeated a side above them on the ladder since February and are nine points off the finals.
Defence is still a major issue for Perth, with the team failing to keep a clean sheet in 18 of their 19 matches this season.
United have won the last two games between the teams and that will give them confidence here. We can expect a high-scoring game given the 5-4 result in the last meeting, Perth’s wobbly defence and United conceding five goals in their last match.
