Melbourne City vs Western Sydney Wanderers
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 08:50 UK
Venue: AAMI Park (Melbourne)
Melbourne City and WS Wanderers are going to close the Saturday’s action in the 24th round of Australian A-League. The hosts are searching for a way out from the negative streak, while the visitors want to secure their spot in the playoffs.
Home side’s performances declined a lot recently and in the last four matches they’ve managed to pick up only a point. They are currently sitting on the 4th position, however their rivals may catch them up if they continue playing like this. Warren Joyce’s guys have been doing fairly well in front of the oppositions’ goal, but their defence lost the focus lately. Melbourne City have been performing very well at home pitch prior to this winless run and in the last three games I front of their fans, they’ve took only a point. If they want to remain on the current position, the hosts need to break this bad run and start winning as soon as possible.
WS Wanderers are on the last place which secures participation in the playoffs, however they are only two points ahead of Brisbane Roar, who are in a pretty fine form. The visitors have been defeated in one occasion in the last five matches, but they need to improve their defensive work if they want to be competitive for the final battles. Oriol Riera has been very efficient this season, however his teammates need to keep up and back him up so they can remain on the 6th place. WS Wanderers have been pretty good when playing at away pitches and they’ve suffered only four defeats away from home.
Melbourne City vs WS Wanderers: Head-to-head
The visiting team haven’t celebrated a win since 2015 and in the last three matches WS Wanderers booked two wins. Their head to head lashes are usually very efficient and seven times in the last eight occasions, both teams were able to find the net.
Melbourne City vs WS Wanderers: Prediction
Although they have been in a poor form, we are going to follow the tradition of their head to head clashes and try with a home win.
Similar to the previous statement, since the crowd is able to see goals in both nets on a regular basis, this one shouldn’t be much different.
