Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers will face off at Stadium Australia on Saturday at 6.05am (UK Time), with both teams looking for a second consecutive win in the A-League.
Sydney FC kicked off the new A-League campaign in a positive manner, winning 2-1 on the road at Wellington Phoenix a fortnight ago. They were involved in the AFC Champions League towards the end of 2020, but they finished bottom of their qualifying group with just one victory to their name in six games.
However, their recent form reads two wins and one draw in their last three competitive matches and this will definitely give them a morale boost ahead of a clash with the Wanderers. Worryingly for Sydney FC, they have endured a poor run of form on home soil over the past couple of months, having won just three of their last ten competitive ‘home’ games.
Meanwhile, WS Wanderers have already played two games throughout this new season, having registered a 0-1 home loss against Macarthur FC and a 2-1 victory at Newcastle Jets. This leaves them sixth in the league table, tied on points with Saturday’s opponents. Overall, WS Wanderers have won just three of their last ten games across all competitions, although two of these have been recorded in their most recent three matches. Away from home, WS Wanderers were on a four-game winless streak in the A-League prior to their win at Newcastle Jets a week ago.
Can Sydney FC extend their unbeaten streak to four games? Or will WS Wanderers secure their second consecutive away win in the A-League?

Sydney FC and WS Wanderers’s previous line-ups:
- Sydney FC (vs Wellington Phoenix): Redmayne; Grant, Wilkinson, Warland, King; Caceres, Nieuwenhof, Brattan, Ninkovic; Barbarouses, Buhagiar.
- WS Wanderers (vs Newcastle Jets): Margush; Gordon, McGowan, Mourdoukoutas; Russell, Dorrans, Baccus, Aquilina, Troisi; Muller, Cox.
There are no new injury concerns for Sydney FC as the new season just kicked off, with Adam Pavlesic a continued absentee from the previous campaign. Sydney FC did well against Wellington Phoenix last time out in the A-League, so it’s unlikely to see any changes to the starting line-up. Nieuwenhof and Brattan both got on the scoresheet in that match so they should feature once again in midfield.
The same can be said about WS Wanderers as they’re coming into this match on the back of a win over Newcastle Jets. However, there might be some rotation in attack as their two forwards fired a blank, but head coach Carl Robinson may be reluctant to tinker with a winning formula.
