Competition: A-League

Market: Lachlan Brook to score anytime

Odds: 2/1 @ 1xBet

Seeking a welcomed A-League boost on Friday morning, Western Sydney will welcome Western United to the CommBank Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, making an immediate return to losing ways last week as they fell to a 4-1 drumming at the hands of bitter local rivals Sydney, the Wanderers are desperate to claim some much-needed stability. Although Marko Rudan’s men might have secured a 2-1 victory away at Adelaide on February 24th, that is the only win that they have collected from their previous five appearances. Opening this weekend’s fixtures holding just a three-point buffer from slipping out of the play-off places, the former Wellington boss will also be concerned by his side’s glaring defensive issues. Including an action-packed 4-3 loss against Macarthur last month, Westerns Sydney have failed to muster a single clean sheet at the CommBank Stadium since opening up the New Year. However, facing what is a must-win showdown here, attacking talisman Lachlan Brook could have a leading role to play. It should be highlighted, the former Brentford starlet has notched five goals in his previous six A-League outings.

As for the visitors, while Western United might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign with their sights set on punching a play-off ticket, John Aloisi’s men have endured a public A-League nightmare this time around. Although the Victoria-based outfit might have claimed a much-welcomed 1-0 victory against Perth last week, they still sit rock-bottom of the table having collected just 15 points from their 19 A-League appearances this year. Tipped as a standout contender to claim Australia’s wooden spoon in 2024, Friday’s guests have also continued to show a host of issues on the road. In fact, Western United have claimed just a pair of points from any of their last nine straight contests away from AAMI Park – a run that stems all the way back to October 21st. It should also be highlighted, Aloisi’s struggling squad have conceded 25 goals in those nine connective away fixtures.
