Macarthur vs Western Sydney Wanderers Predictions 


Neither side have been particularly high scoring this season. Macarthur’s poor record at home is also worth noting, as is Western Sydney’s away form. I’m tipping under 2.5 goals with this one ending in a draw.

  • Macarthur have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Western Sydney have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Western Sydney have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 6 away matches (A-League).
  • Western Sydney are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 away matches (A-League).

Head to Head


These two sides have only met on the one previous occasion back in the opening round. 

Playing in their inaugural match, Macarthur FC picked up a 1-0 win away from home with captain Mark Milligan scoring the decisive goal.

Macarthur Form


Macarthur have had a mixed bag of results across their opening five matches. 

The Bulls are yet to win at home this season, with their best result at Campbelltown stadium coming in a 1-1 draw with the Wellington Phoenix three weeks ago. 

Macarthur picked up their second win the following week away to the Newcastle Jets. First half-goals from French import Loic Puyo and striker Matt Derbyshire helped the Bulls to a 2-1 win. 

Although they were quickly brought back down to earth after a 3-0 defeat at home to Sydney FC. While Macarthur dominated the first half, a red card to Milligan and an hour half-time delay saw momentum turn Sydney’s way.

Macarthur Injuries & Team News


Milligan will serve his one-match ban after he was sent off in the side’s loss to Sydney FC. 

Defender Aleksander Susnjar should come in for the former Socceroo, with Susnjar starting in the opening four matches of the season before being dropped.

Western Sydney Wanderers Form


Western Sydney come into this derby unbeaten in their last four matches.

The Wanderers picked up their second win of the season when they narrowly beat the Central Coast Mariners 1-0 away from home. A Nicolai Muller goal in the 83rd minute saw the Wanderers see off a Central Coast who were unbeaten at the time.

A 1-1 draw with Sydney FC in the derby followed before another stalemate against the Jets in their second meeting of the season. 

The match finished 1-1 with the Wanderers scoring first through forward Bernie Ibini early in the match, before the Jets equalised late.

Western Sydney Wanderers Injuries & Team News


Captain Dylan McGowan is out with a foot injury and could be sidelined for up to six weeks. 

Goalkeeper Vedran Janjetovic is still on the side’s long-term injury list as he recovers from a shoulder injury.

Ex-Cardiff City midfielder Jordon Mutch is yet to feature for the Wanderers since signing. The 29-year-old has finished his quarantine period and will be in contention to make his debut.
