Western United vs Adelaide United Head-to-head

  • Either team has 1 win in their 4 h2h games.
  • An average of 3.25 goals have been scored in those 4 fixtures.
  • The preceding 2 matches ended in goalless draws.
  • The hosts have not defeated this foe at home.

Analysis

John Aloisi’s men have kept it tight in defence this season and have conceded just once in 4 league games. This has secured the team 3 wins in succession despite being able to score just thrice in the season.

The club is currently 3rd in the league table, with 9 points. They are a point behind league leaders Macarthur and level on points with Melbourne Victory.

Things are yet to fall in the way of the Reds this season as they are yet to register a win this season and have gone 5 league matches without a win. They are 10th in the table with 3 points.

Western United vs Adelaide United Prediction

Despite suffering a loss against Melbourne Victory on matchday 1 of this season, the hosts have pulled 3 consecutive wins. With such a form they should be able to seal all 3 points against a side that is winless this season.

The total goals involved in WUFC’s fixtures this season is 4. To add to that the average combined score line involved in Adelaide’s fixtures is 2.25. Since both attacks have struggled to produce goals with the defences doing fairly well it makes sense to back under 2.5 goals in this fixture.
