Western United odds: 3/1 (4.00) – 24.7%

Draw odds: 13/4 (4.25) – 23.3%

Sydney odds: 39/20 (1.78) – 52.0%

Western United are less likely to win this, as they have a 24.7% win probability at 3/1 (4.00), while Sydney are considered to be the expected winners, with a staggering 52.0% win probability. The 2023 Australian Cup winners’ odds are priced at 39/20 (1.78), which is quite tempting indeed. We believe we will see over 1.5 Sydney goals this week, as the odds at 23/20 (2.15) imply a solid 46.51% success chance.

Western United vs Sydney Lineups & Team News

Western United

It’s hardly a surprise that our Western United vs Sydney predictions favor the visitors when coach Aloisi’s players have lost four of their last five A-League matches. With only two wins in 13 league appearances, Western United’s odds of getting the three points against the 2023 Australian Cup winners seem nonexistent.

Predicted lineup – Heward-Belle (GK), Risdon, Imai, Vidmar, Garuccio, Penha, Lustica, Thurgate, Wales, Ruhs & Botic

Sydney

Sydney’s 2023/24 A-League campaign began a bit rocky, but the team is picking up the pace. In the last five A-League matches, coach Talay’s players recorded three wins, one draw, and only one loss.

Predicted lineup – Redmayne (GK), Courtney-Perkins, Lacerda, Girdwood-Reich, Grant, Hollman, Brattan, Burgess, Caceres, Lolley & Gomes

Player to Watch: Fabio Gomes

We have Fabio Gomes down as the player to watch in our Western United vs Sydney prediction for one key reason – he is usually on the bench for Sydney. Now that goalscorer-in-chief Wood will miss out on a couple of games for the team due to his red-card suspension, it will be up to Fabio Gomes to lead Sydney forward.

With five goals to his name in the 2023/24 A-League campaign, he is already one of the best finishers that coach Talay has under his guidance. Surely, this is a huge opportunity for him to book a starting position on the team.
