Venue: Bankwest Stadium (Sydney)
The current premiers of the competition are in a bad position with just a handful of games to go. They are fifth in the table with 10 wins and eight defeats from 25 games. Even though they are in a playoff spot they still need to win the remaining matches to stay there till the end.
Western United has impressed everyone in their debut season. The team based on the western suburbs of Melbourne still has hope of reaching the playoffs. They are just two points behind Adelaide United who occupy the last playoff seat. The recent win over Western Sydney Wanderers has given them hope coming into this match.

Perth Glory vs Western United FC: Prediction
The past few matchdays was terrible for the Glory as they lost back to back games. In their last five games, they lost to teams like Melbourne Victory, Adelaide United, and the Nix. But when we look at the other side we can see the stark distinction in the present form. The visitors have picked up four wins in their five previous league fixtures both home and away. The only match they lost was against the Newcastle Jets away from home. So there is a high chance that they can be a handful for the home defenders.
Even though Perth has lost the majority of their recent fixtures, they are god attacking side. With 43 goals from 25 games, they are the third-highest scorers in this season. But at the same time, the defeats were caused by silly mistakes at the back. So I think we will see them share points like their last meeting.
