Perth Glory vs Western United Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Perth Glory host a red hot Western United at HBF Park in the A-League in what should be an attacking encounter. Both clubs have strength in attack with the BTTS and total goals markets in play.

Perth Glory Form


Perth Glory are on a poor run of form that began with a 1-0 defeat at FC Tokyo in the AFC Champions League. Tony Popovic’s side have failed to win in their four A-League games since.

A 1-1 draw at Brisbane was followed by a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle. Perth returned home and found themselves 3-0 down against Melbourne City after 34 minutes. Two second half goals to Joel Chianese and Bruno Fornaroli got Glory back in the game but they couldn’t find an equaliser.

Perth’s last match was a 0-0 draw at A-League leaders Sydney FC. Glory created chances but were wasteful in front of goal.

Perth Glory Team News


Perth Glory goalkeeper Liam Reddy will become the fourth player to reach the 300-game mark in the A-League if he lines up against Western United. Reddy has kept a league-high seven clean sheets this season.

Tony Popovic is unlikely to hit the panic button just yet. He has few options to alter his attack with Christopher Oikonomidis injured, which means the trio of Diego Castro, Joel Chianese and Bruno Fornaroli should continue up front with Nick D'Agostino an option off the bench.

Perth Glory Predicted Line Up


Perth Glory's predicted line-up vs Western United is: Reddy; Wuthrich, Mrcela, Grant; Franjic, Kilkenny, Juande, Meredith; Castro, Chianese, Fornaroli.

Western United Form


Western United have won their last two matches in impressive fashion to move into the play-off positions. A 6-2 home win against Central Coast Mariners was followed by a 5-1 win at Adelaide United.

Besart Berisha bagged a brace against the Mariners with Max Burgess hitting a hat-trick and Andrew Durante on target. Berisha was at it again in Adelaide, scoring another two goals with Alessandro Diamanti, Max Burgess and Connor Pain completing the rout.

Western United Team News


Western United goalkeeper Filip Kurto was taken off last week but is expected to start in Perth. 

Manager Mark Rudan has little reason to make any changes in Perth. 20-year-old central midfielder Jerry Skotadis returns from suspension and will hope to return to the starting side at Sebastian Pasquali’s expense.

Western United Predicted Line Up


Western United’s predicted line-up vs Perth Glory is: Kurto; Imai, Durante, Uskok; Risdon, Pasquali, Lustica, Pain; Burgess, Diamanti; Berisha.

Perth Glory vs Western United Head to Head


Perth Glory have met Western United on one occasion, a 1-1 draw in Sydney in October. Panagiotis Kone opened the scoring for Western United with Perth Glory’s Kristian Popovic equalising in the closing stages.

Perth Glory vs Western United Betting Odds


Perth Glory are 1.55 favourites at bet365 with Western United priced at 5.50 for an away win. A draw can be backed at 4.33. 

I am focusing on goals in this one. Perth Glory have seen BTTS in their last three home matches in the A-League which is listed at 1.70.

Perth Glory have seen over 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 home matches in the A-League and over 3.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 at home. Western United have seen over 5.5 goals in their last 2 A-League matches.

Over 2.5 goals is an option at 1.61 with over 3.5 goals certainly in play at 2.62. BTTS and over 2.5 goals is on my betslip at 2.00.

Perth Glory vs Western United Match Up


Perth Glory’s Diego Castro creating 49 chances in 18 A-League matches this season. The Spaniard has provided seven assists, the most in the A-League this season. 

Striker Bruno Fornaroli has scored 12 goals this season and is likely to get opportunities to add to that tally.

Western United striker Besart Berisha has hit form at the right time. The 34-year-old has scored 14 goals in the A-League this season and is supported by Alessandro Diamanti with seven assists and Max Burgess with four goals in his last two matches.
