Head to Head


Western United have a 2-0 record over Western Sydney in the head-to-head with no draws in the two meetings. 

The two sides played out an eight goal thriller the last time they met. Western United came out 5-3 victors with ex-West Ham midfielder Alessandro Diamanti starring with a brace.

Western United Form


Western United have solidified themselves as the league’s entertainers. 

Following their 3-2 defeat against Central Coast, the green-and-black sent a strong message in a 4-1 win over Macarthur. Midfielder Iker Guarrotxena scored his first goal for the club, while Besart Berisha returned to form with a brace. 

Western backed this up with a thrilling 4-3 win against Melbourne Victory. Berisha’s second half brace saw Western lead 3-1 before centre back Tomislav Uskok’s sending off. 

With the score tied at 3-3, Spanish midfielder Victor Sanchez won the match in dramatic fashion with a 95th minute goal.

Western United Injuries & Team News


Western United will be without vice-captain Tomislav Uskok who will serve a one-match suspension. Right back Josh Risdon is still recovering from a fractured tibia, while fellow defender Brendan Hamill is doubtful with a foot injury. 

Midfielder Seb Pasquali will also remain sidelined as he recovers from a hip injury.

Berisha has returned to his devastating best with the Kosovan slotting five goals in his three matches – including two braces.

Striker Mitchell Duke scored his first goal on return while winger Bruce Kamau also contributed to the scoresheet. 

Sloppy turnovers then cost them in their next match against Melbourne City. The Wanderers went down 2-0 with City’s Jamie Maclaren netting a brace.
