Key Stats

  • The Bulls won three consecutive games against this opponent.
  • Sydney lost more games than Macarthur this season.
  • Coach Mile Sterjovski has a perfect 2-0-0 record against the 2023 Australian Cup Winners.
  • Coach Talay, on the other hand, has a negative 4-2-5 record in games versus the Bulls.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Sydney will get shell-shocked

  • HOME: 13/25 (1.52) – 64.4%
  • DRAW: 71/20 (4.55) – 20.6%
  • AWAY: 24/5 (5.80) – 15.0%

*These Sydney vs Macarthur odds are subject to change

There is a 58.82% chance we will see BTTS at Allianz Stadium, according to the odds, which stand at 7/10 (1.70). We understand why the bookmakers consider Sydney the expected winners, but we believe giving coach Talay’s team a massive 64.4% win probability is a bet excessive.

We’d like to beat the odds with a bet on the visitors. The Bulls’ odds are priced at 24/5 (5.80), but considering their solid run against the 2023 Australian Cup Winners, we believe our Sydney vs Macarthur predictions just might succeed.

Check out these Sydney vs Macarthur head-to-head statistics. You’ll find out why we favor the visitors.

Sydney team news and form: Shacky display by Talay’s boys

So far, Sydney didn’t impress anyone with their display. There wasn’t a point in the season when the team was enjoying a strong moment. Sure, Sydney score goals on a regular basis, but the team’s leaky backline is the root of all troubles for Talay, and we are sure this will help our Sydney vs Macarthur predictions plenty.

Predicted lineup: Redmayne (GK), Grant, Matthews, Girdwood-Reich, Courtney-Perkins, Hollman, Brattan, Lolley, Caceres, Kucharski & Mak

Macarthur team news and form: Impressive Bulls to beat the odds

Sure, Macarthur got thrashed by top-of-the-table Wellington last week via a brutal 3-0 defeat, but the result doesn’t do justice to the visitors at Wellington Regional Stadium. They had just as many shots as Wellington and surely deserved to get a point.

Predicted lineup: Kurto (GK), Vujica, Jurman, Uskok, Adamson, Popovic, Lewis, Davila, Drew, M’Mombwa & Germain

Player to watch: Joe Lolley

We often give Lolley a shoutout in our articles, but that’s only because the English winger is in such good shape. The 31-year-old player is undoubtedly one of A-League’s finest, and it goes without saying that the spotlight will be his on the 5th of May.

Lolley scoring for fun

Joe scored two of the goals for his team in last week’s brutal 7-1 victory over Perth Glory at Allianz Stadium.
