Western Sydney Wanderers vs Perth Glory: Predictions

Both teams will like to start the New Year with a win to move up further on the table.

The Glory have never played at ANZ Stadium before so that could prove to be a disadvantage.

On the other hand, the Wanderers have not registered a win at the stadium so maybe not a big disadvantage for the Glory.

Western Sydney will be looking to take their chances when they get them and at the same time, be solid in defence. Perth showed plenty of character in their last game and if they can bring that fight to this match, a win could be coming their way.

This is an important game for both sides and given so much to play for, they will cancel each other out and this fixture will end in a draw.
