  • Sydney FC have seen over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


These two sides have only met on two occasions with the head-to-head sitting at 1-1. 

Their last meeting saw Western United come away with a 2-1 win after midfielder Steven Lustica’s dramatic 90th minute goal stole the points.

Sydney FC Form


Sydney FC are in desperate need of points after finding themselves winless in their last four matches. 

The Sky Blues lost 3-2 against Melbourne City after trailing 3-0 midway through the second half. Substitutes Milos Ninkovic and Patrick Wood scored late to set up a grandstand finish but it was too little too late. 

Sydney were then defeated 1-0 at home to Macarthur before being held to a 1-1 draw by Brisbane Roar. In a positive for the Sky Blues, Brazilian forward Bobo scored his first goal of the season in his third appearance since returning. 

Sydney FC Injuries & Team News


Left-back Michael Zullo is a chance to return from a calf injury which has seen him miss the opening ten weeks. Forward Trent Buhagiar will also be sidelined with a knee injury. 

Bobo’s playing time has increased each week, with the Brazilian playing 45 minutes against the Roar. He will be in contention to start against Western United.

Western United Form


Western United have established themselves as the league’s entertainers. Mark Rudan’s side sent an ominous warning to rivals in a 4-1 win over Macarthur. 

Spanish import Iker Guarrotxena scored his first for the club, while Kosovan international Besart Berisha netted a brace. 

The following week saw Western escape with an emphatic 4-3 win against Melbourne Victory. While Berisha scored a brace for the second straight week, it was Spanish midfielder Victor Sanchez’s 95th minute effort which won the match. 

Though this goalscoring run would come to an end against Western Sydney. The Green-and-black were left scoreless in a 1-0 defeat at home against the Wanderers.

Western United Injuries & Team News


The recent loss to the Wanderers was exacerbated by goalkeeper Fillip Kurto suffering a concussion. He will miss the match against Sydney FC and will be replaced by reserve goalkeeper Ryan Scott. 

Right-back Josh Risdon is still out with a fractured tibia, while midfielder Seb Pasquali will spend another week sidelined due to a hip injury. 

Centre-back Tomislav Uskok will slot back in after returning from suspension.
