Sydney odds: 18/25 (1.72) – 57.2%

Draw odds: 67/20 (4.35) – 20.0%

Macarthur odds: 16/5 (4.20) – 22.8%

We believe the bookies were right to pick Sydney as the expected winners and supply them with an impressive 57.2% win probability. Despite a shaky start to their A-League campaign, coach Talay’s boys did win the Australian Cup this season. This is partially the reason we have Macarthur as the underdogs in this race, with a 22.8% win probability at 16/5 (4.20). Furthermore, we also think that we will see over 2.5 goals this week. The bookies say our chief Sydney vs Macarthur prediction stands at a whopping 56.9% of success.

Sydney vs Macarthur Lineups & Team News

Sydney

The result on the scoreboard at Allianz Stadium on the 2nd of December was 3-2 in favor of Sydney, but honestly, coach Talay’s boys should’ve thrashed Perth Glory. Sydney had a shocking 33 shots at target, and they surely deserved a more expressive win. However, with such a sturdy display at home in their previous A-League outing, how could we possibly not favor the Australian Cup winners in our Sydney vs Macarthur prediction?

Predicted lineup – Redmayne (GK), Grant, Lacerda, Girdwood-Reich, King, Hollman, Brattan, Lolley, Mak, Gomes & Wood

Macarthur

The Bulls are one of the four undefeated teams in the A-League this season. The other ones are Melbourne Victory, Wellington Phoenix, and Western Sydney Wanderers. However, the Bulls’ luck will run out on the 9th of December, as our Sydney vs Macarthur predictions anticipate a victory for coach Talay’s players.

Predicted lineup – Kurto (GK), Nikolau, Aspropotamitis, Jurman, Vujica, Millar, Baccus, Lewis, Rodrigues, Germain & Davila

Player to Watch: Joe Lolley

Not only did Joe score in Sydney’s last match against Perth Glory, but he was an ever-present danger in front of the Glory’s goalkeeper. We are adamant that Lolley deserves a shoutout in our Sydney vs Macarthur prediction, as he’s also the top goalscorer at coach Talay’s disposal this season.

Sure, with only three goals to his name in the 2023/24 A-League campaign, Lolley will likely not partake in the Top Goalscorer Award at the end of the campaign, but he’s still a lovely player to observe.
