Western United vs Macarthur Predictions 


Western United host Macarthur in Sydney due to Victoria entering a seven day lockdown. The green-and-black have lost their last six, while Macarthur are hitting some impressive form late in the season. 

I’m tipping over 2.5 goals and Macarthur to win with Matt Derbyshire to score.

  • Western United have lost their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Western United have lost their last 4 matches outside Victoria (A-League).
  • Macarthur have seen over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches (A-League).
  • Macarthur’s Matt Derbyshire has scored 14 goals in his last 21 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Both sides have won a game each in the head-to-head with no draws in two encounters. 

Western United picked up a 4-1 win in their last meeting. Basque midfielder Iker Guarrotxena opened the scoring, while striker Besart Berisha starred with a brace.

Western United Form


The end cannot come sooner for Western United, who have lost their last six matches. 

Following a 3-0 defeat to Perth, Mark Rudan’s side were narrowly defeated at home against Sydney FC. The Sky Blues converted a controversial penalty which saw them escape with a 1-0 win. 

A trip to Wellington followed where Western were humbled by the Phoenix in a 3-0 defeat. Despite a promising start, the visitors were dominated in the second half and punished for mistakes. 

But the worst was yet to come, as Western suffered their greatest ever defeat at the hands of the struggling Melbourne Victory. Western United had no answers in the 6-1 defeat, with the green-and-black conceding four first half goals.

Western United Injuries & Team News


Defender Josh Risdon remains sidelined with a foot injury, while Spanish midfielder Victor Sanchez is also unavailable with a calf problem. 

Striker Besart Berisha will be in contention to return after he was rested against the Victory.

Macarthur Form


A win for the Bulls could all but secure their place in this year’s finals series. 

Striker Matt Derbyshire scored a brace as Macarthur made light work of Melbourne Victory at home in a 3-1 win. Defender James Meredith also popped up with a rare goal on the night. 

A hard fought 1-1 draw away to Perth followed, with Derbyshire finding an equaliser in the 30th minute to earn his side an important point. 

The Bulls then opened the scoring in their next match against Central Coast through Spaniard Markel Susaeta. But a strong second half showing from the Mariners saw them score twice and take the points in a 2-1 win.

Macarthur Injuries & Team News


Defender Aleksander Jovanovic is in contention to return from a calf injury, while striker Charles M’Mombwa is also in line to return after recovering from an ankle problem.
