Perth Glory Preview – Can Perth recover from recent poor run to win their first match in five?

It’s been a really disappointing run of form for Perth in recent weeks which has seen Glory fall down the A-League standings. Two defeats and two draws in their last four matches now mean they sit in fifth spot and 17 points behind leaders Sydney. In their defence three of those games have been away from home but it’s still been a frustrating time for Tony Popovic’s men.
Glory also lost their first home game in their last six league games in Perth when going down 3-2 against Melbourne City, an opponent they are now nine points behind but whom they have two games in hand over.
Our betting prediction:
Bruno Fornaroli to score anytime

Bet at 888Sport

Whilst Glory know they need to get back to winning ways soon to ensure they’re not sweating for a finish in the playoffs, they will take heart from the fact they held runaway leaders and current champions Sydney away from home last week. Coincidentally, the same result of last year’s final which they then went on to lose out on penalties.
If Popovic is to lead his team back to that stage this season then Bruno Fornaroli is going to be key. The Uruguayan has 12 goals for the season – eight more than any other play in the team.

Western United Preview – Are newcomers Western United set to make it three A-League wins for the first time?

For a team competing in their first season at this level, Western United can be very happy with their efforts so far. It’s not always been easy but they have been able to show real desire to always be in and around the playoffs which would have been an aspiration of theirs. United come into this game on the back of two remarkable victories against Central Coast Mariners and Adelaide United. A 6-2 home win was followed by an excellent 5-1 success on the road.

The win in Adelaide was vital as well due to the fact it meant they leapfrogged that rival into sixth spot.

Those 11 goals scored over the last two games are just under a third of Western United’s total goals for the season and the hope will be they can continue that sort of form into the next few games.

The battle for the top six is going to go to the wire with United level on points with Adelaide and one ahead of Western Sydney Wanderers. United also have the advantage of having a game in hand over those teams whilst a win here would put them to within a point of Perth Glory.


Perth Glory vs Western United Betting Advice

This game is going to have an impact on the top six as teams look to establish themselves in the playoff positions. Glory can take a big step to ensuring they move clear of the chasing pack whilst the visitors are hoping they can give themselves something of a cushion following their excellent recent results. Western United are looking to win three consecutive games for the first time in the league.
It was a share of the points earlier in the season between the teams following a 1-1 draw.

Key Facts – Perth Glory vs Western United Betting Tip

  • Perth lost their first home game in six when going down 3-2 at the hands of Melbourne City
  • Western United come into this game on the back of two wins, scoring 11 goals in the process
  • The sides drew 1-1 when they met earlier in the season in Geelong


Perth do have the extra experience and quality but are not in the best of form. With Western United’s recent goal scoring splurge this is a game which could be plenty open. Perth Glory’s home games average over four goals which five further support to seeing a few here.

Over 2.5 goals looks appealing but at the odds, the selection is over 3.5. This would be a winning bet in five of Perth’s last six home matches.
