Western United team news and form: Aloisi needs a win

If coach John Aloisi wants to keep his job, he better start getting results. The team is at the bottom of the table, and seeing as Tom Heward-Belle won’t partake in this event, we are sure that the visitors won’t have issues scoring against Western United.

Predicted lineup: Sutton (GK), Risdon, Imai, Vidmar, Garrucio, Wales, Pasquali, Thurgate, Grimaldi, Botic & Ruhs

Player to watch: Bruno Fornaroli

Bruno Fornaroli is the player to watch in our Western United vs Melbourne Victory prediction, as he’s by far the best player under coach Anthony Popovic’s guidance. Moreover, Fornaorli is not only the best finisher for Melbourne Victory but the most influential A-League goalscorer this season.

Fornaroli scoring for fun in the A-League

Since the start of the 2023/24 A-league season, Bruno bagged a total of 14 goals. Which is the same amount as Newcastle Jets’ Stamatelopoulos. However, Bruno had to miss a couple of games for Melbourne Victory.
