Western United and Adelaide United will attempt to make it a winning Australia Day when they meet in the final game of A-League Round 16 at Whitten Oval on Sunday.
Western United v Adelaide United kicks off at 6.00pm AEDT at Whitten Oval. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.
Both sides scored important victories last weekend to bring losing runs to an end, and they break new ground on Australia Day when Western United stage their first-ever match at Whitten Oval.
Western United brought a run of two straight defeats – and three games without a win – to an end with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Central Coast Mariners last weekend with all goals coming inside the opening 21 minutes.
Adelaide United, meanwhile, avoided a fifth successive defeat when finally getting things back on track with a 1-0 home win against Melbourne Victory.
What will unfold when these two sides meet for the first time? Despite the wins in Round 15, both have been unpredictable over the last month of A-League action and it may pay to sit on the fence in this one.
There is just two points between the two sides sitting in fifth and seventh respectively with the Reds able to jump above their opponents if claiming all three points in this one.
What looks assured is that there should be goals. Adelaide have failed to score in only one of their previous 13 games this season and Western United also have goals in that.
Western United – $2.94
Adelaide United – $2.32
Draw – $3.50
