Melbourne City vs Western Sydney - Rd 6 A-League Preview & Betting Tips

This could be a game where each side will neutralise the other. City will be without Tim Cahill here but they were found out by Sydney FC last week and while the Wanderers are a different outfit altogether, they could trouble them in certain stages.

Win-Draw-Win

Draw

  • This could be a game where each side will neutralise the other. Both are playing well with a concern from a Wanderers perspective being their second half fade outs, which have cost them a number of wins this season. It is important to note that this is the first match that Josep Gombau takes charge and if anything, his discipline and influence will ensure that conceding an equalizer against 10-men, like they did last week, won’t be happening again anytime soon. City will be without Tim Cahill here but they were found out by Sydney FC last week and while the Wanderers are a different outfit altogether, they could trouble them in certain stages.

 

HALF-FULL DOUBLE
WESTERN SYDNEY / DRAW

  • The Wanderers should jump out of the blocks early but expect City to finish the stronger

 

FIRST GOALSCORER

Oriol Riera

  • The Spaniard has been a money machine in this market so far this season, scoring the first goal three times in the first five rounds
     

TOTAL GOALS OVER OR UNDER

UNDER 2.5

  • This will be a tight affair
