Always a fiery contest these derbies and it looks like that will continue in front of a big crowd.

Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold has added some spice to this match by stating Western Sydney will not have a shot on target.

Western Sydney will want to prove him wrong and get some early shots at the keeper to put them on the back foot early. If they can do that, it should create goals.

All about continuing their form for Sydney FC as they do not want to slip up, especially in the derby.

A win for the Sky Blues will extend their lead on top of the table while a Wanderers win will move them into the top 6.

It is hard not to go past Sydney FC and they should get the win against Western Sydney Wanderers in this fixture.
