Western Sydney Wanderers vs Macarthur – Top Two Tips

Two of the A-League current top three go head-to-head this weekend and with just a point separating the pair ahead of kick-off, we're expecting a tight and tense 90-minutes at the CommBank Stadium.

Draw

Two of the last four league meetings between these two sides have ended in draws and with the pair playing to such a similarly high standard so far this season, we're predicting another stalemate on New Year's Day. Two of WSW's last three outings in the A-League have ended all square and Macarthur have been inconsistent of late with three wins and three defeats from their last six league games.

Under 2.5 Goals

There is a good chance that Sunday's clash will end up being a low-scoring game with both teams cancelling one another out. Three of the last five league meetings between the two clubs have ended with under 2.5 goals being scored, including a 1-1 draw back in May. Four of WSW's last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals, while two of Macarthur's last three league games have witnessed just one goal scored.

Predicted Lineups, Team News & Last Result

Western Sydney Wanderers

WSW made the trip to Brisbane Roar before Christmas but only managed to come away with a share of the spoils. Bozanic had put the visitors in front after 18-minutes, following good work from Borello who claimed an assist, but Brisbane equalised just after the hour mark and the game ended in a stalemate. WSW didn't pick up any fresh injury concerns during that game and could go with the same starting lineup for the Macarthur clash.

Predicted Lineup – Thomas (GK), Marcelo, Traoré, Mrčela, Cléùr, Bozanic, Amalfitano, Nieuwenhof, N'Gbakoto, Krpić & Borello

Macarthur

Macarthur were in top form when they took on Sydney at the Allianz Stadium. The visitors took the lead in first-half stoppage-time through Arabuli and never looked back from that point on. Sydney were reduced to 10-men early in the second half when Lolley picked up a straight red card and in the 71st-minute, Davila made it 2-0. Arabuli scored his second goal to wrap up a 3-0 victory in the 89th-minute, a result that takes Macarthur to within a point of WSW.

Predicted Lineup – Kurto (GK), Aspropotamitis, Vujica, Millar, Uskok, Noone, Dávila, De Silva, Hollman, Arabuli & Toure

Player to Watch: Bachana Arabuli

Macarthur's 28-year-old Georgian striker has scored 3-goals in three games this season and could be the man to lead his new club to A-League glory.

Arabuli left Georgia for Hungary in 2017 but soon moved to Greece for the start of the 2019/20 season with Panionios. Arabuli stayed in Greece for another two seasons with Lamia before making the move to Macarthur at the start of this season.

The left-footed striker has only hit double figures in one of his previous campaigns, back in 2017 for Dinamo Tbilisi, but already looks like a great signing for Macarthur and might well hit double figures in his debut season in the A-League.

Arabuli scored twice against Sydney last time out and with his confidence high, the WSW's defence will have to keep a sharp eye on him this weekend.
