Western United vs Western Sydney Wanderers
Australia – A-League
Date: Friday, 7 August 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: Jubilee Oval.
Mark Rudan’s men are placed just outside of the playoff zone, and they need to shift gears up if they are to make the cut-off, as the season is approaching its end. They do have games in hand, compared to Adelaide United (whom they hope to replace as the final entrant in the post-season).
On top of that, Adelaide also are taking on the best team in the league this match-day, Sydney. As such, a win this weekend will be doubly beneficial for Rudan’s men.
Considering their 100% unbeaten h2h record against the Wanderers, and the 100% h2h winning record at this venue, expect Western United to post the three points this Friday.
Western United vs Western Sydney: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- Not once have Jean-Paul de Marigny’s men won against this rival.
- Not once have they kept a clean sheet against this foe as well.
- At this venue, the hosts have a 100% winning record.
Western United vs Western Sydney: Prediction
Rudan’s men have won three of their former four match-ups, and they had scored five or more goals in two of these four games. At home, they had won their latest appearance 6-2, and had scored three or more goals in four of their preceding six clashes here.
On the other hand, their counterparts had a single win from their last five fixtures, and were winless in eight of their preceding eleven road trips. Also keep note that they had conceded two or more goals in seven of their former eleven away fixtures.
In addition, they have never once won an h2h match-up against this opponent, and have lost all of their games against them at this venue.
Moreover, Rudan’s men could make serious inroads into playoff territory with a win this Friday. As such, expect Western United to post a victory at the Jubilee Oval this weekend.
