MATCH SUMMARY

Under siege Wanderers need to lift. The Red and Black were humbled 4-nil by Newcastle last week, just a fortnight after suffering a humiliating 5-nil thumping in the Sydney Derby. They will be hoping that the start of 2018 will bring a change in fortune as they host a Melbourne City team that is reeling after suffering a last-minute loss in the Melbourne Derby.

 

3 KEY POINTS

  • WANDERERS have lost four of five matches

 

  • CITY have dropped four of their past six games

 

  • WESTERN SYDNEY has the worst attack in the competition (one goal per game on average)

 

THE HISTORY

Win or lose

  • Melbourne City has never won away to the Wanderers
     
  • The away team in this fixture hasn’t won in the past six encounters
     
  • Brendon Santalab scored a hat-trick the last time Western Sydney hosted City

 

 

Win-Draw-Win

WESTERN SYDNEY

  • You would have to expect some bounce back from the Wanderers after getting smashed in round 12. They responded accordingly after the loss to Sydney FC with a win against Central Coast, so on that basis alone, we are giving them the benefit of the doubt. City will give them a run for their money and the return of Ross McCormack will give them every chance of snaring a valuable three points on the road, however, we are leaning to the home side – but only just!

 

HALF-FULL DOUBLE
WESTERN SYDNEY / WESTERN SYDNEY

  • If they are going to win then we expect them to come out all guns blazing and scoring early

 

FIRST GOALSCORER

BRENDON SANTALAB

  • Has a good history of scoring against City
     

TOTAL GOALS OVER OR UNDER

UNDER 2.5

  • We think defence will be top of mind for both managers heading into this game so scoring could be at a premium
