Western Sydney Wanderers vs Perth Glory
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 08:00 UK
Venue: Spotless Stadium (Sydney).
The 20th round of Australian A-League is going to be closed with the clash between Western Sydney Wanderers and Perth Glory.
Home side cannot be content of their campaign as they are positioned in the bottom half of the table being 12 points behind the nearest playoff spot.
Western Sydney Wanderers celebrated only four times this season, however they have tied two straight wins lately. Although Markus Babbel’s side has been pretty productive, their very poor defending prevented them of being more competitive in the playoffs race.
Their home performances are terrible as the hosts suffered seven defeats when playing in front of their fans.
On the other hand, Perth Glory are enjoying an excellent season as they are sitting on the top of the table. They are nine points ahead of Melbourne Victory and the visitors managed to celebrate four times in a row.
They failed to just one defeat so far in the season and their defending is the best in the competition. Andrew Keogh and the lads are clinical in front of the oppositions’ goal as they have scored 42 times so far in the season.
Perth Glory still haven’t lost at away grounds and they’ve allowed only two points to their hosts.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Perth Glory: Head-to-head
The visitors have been more successful in their latest head to head clashes as they managed to beat their opponents three times in the last six encounters.
Their clashes are very efficient and one of the sides managed to keep the clean sheet only once in the past ten games.
The latest away victory we saw back in 2015 when Perth Glory celebrated a 2-1 win.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Perth Glory: Prediction
Home side wants to forget this campaign and although they improved their game a bit, the visitors are strong favourites in this one. Perth Glory should be more than capable of snatching all three points from this one.
The visitors have been involved in a lot of high scoring matches this season and they should be able to continue in the same fashion. Since Western Sydney Wanderers are conceding a lot, this one should easily go over 2.5 margin.
