Football – Australia – A-League Betting Tips
Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers face off in the derby clash this weekend in the A-League with hosts Sydney FC holding a commanding seven-point lead at the top of the division, and they’ll be looking to extend this lead at the expense of their western city rivals on Saturday night.
Sydney secured a fourth consecutive league win last weekend with a 3-2 win away at Central Coast Mariners which preserved their unbeaten status in this amazing campaign so far, and with a solid home record of 4-2-0 13/3 behind them on home turf here, they look a good bet to continue their run regardless of this being a local derby.
Their three clean sheets may come under some pressure though this evening as they look to get the upper hand once again over the Wanderers in what is likely to be a fiery affair.
Onto Western Sydney Wanderers and Tony Popovic’s side sit in a disappointing 7th place ahead of this derby clash having failed to win any of their last five A-League matches with defeats suffered against Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City along with stalemates against Wellington Phoenix, Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory.
Western Sydney hold an okay away record which currently stands at 2-3-2 11/11 and they’ll certainly have revenge on their minds after losing their opening game of the new campaign 4-0 at home to Sydney FC at home which would have been a pretty stern wake-up call for the Wanderers!
I’m anticipating a hard-fought, spiteful local derby here, but I do think Sydney FC will come out on top, but not before receiving a scare for their western Sydney rivals.
