Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 7/10 @ Bet 365
In a battle between two sides with a top-six finish on their agenda, a stalling Perth Glory will welcome Western United to HBF Park on Monday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while Perth may have managed to snatch a point against runaway leaders Sydney FC last week, it does no cover what has been a worrying run of form for last year’s champions. Including their 3-2 defeat against top-two contenders Melbourne City earlier in the month, Tony Popovic’s men have failed to land a single victory across any format since the 7th of February. With their chances of securing another AFC Champions League finish taking another major dent, fans around HBF Park will be most concerned by their side’s continued issues at the back, particularly on home soil. Despite recording a flattering clean sheet against the Blues last week, Monday’s hosts have now shipped at least a pair of goals in their last three home matchups on the bounce.
As for the visitors, putting in another rampant display and picking up a stunning 5-1 win away at Adelaide last week, Western United have really started to shine in the final third. Also opening the month with a 6-2 win over rock-bottom Central Coast, one man who has continued to lead United’s recent attacking resurge has been red-hot talisman, Besart Berisha. Bagging yet another brace on the road last week and now recording four strikes in back-to-back appearances, the Kosovo international has already recorded 15 A-League goals in his debut campaign in Australia’s top-tier. In a matchup that should produce a string of chances at both ends of HBF Park pitch, we’re backing both teams to find the net in what should be another lively contest.
