Market: Western United win
Odds: 13/5 @ 888sport
With a real chance to upset the odds and build off of what has been an eye-catching end to the year, a high-flying Western United will meet a struggling Perth at the Bankwest Stadium on Wednesday morning.
Starting with a downbeat Perth, really failing to build off of their stunning title-winning campaign last season, it has been an extremely worrying year this time around for the Purples. Putting in what some feel was a season-worst display last week and completely blown away in a 4-0 drumming against a Melbourne Victory side in the midst of their own crisis, Tony Popovic’s men have lost three of their last four A-League appearances and are a side really crawling over the finish line. With their most recent issues also highlighted by what was a dramatic 5-3 hammering away at Adelaide since returning from football’s enforced break, Perth have now managed to win just a pair of their last 10 matchups across all competitions, a run that stems back to the start of February.
As for Western United, while Perth might just be about crawling over the finish line, Mark Rudan’s men have really started to find their feet and are receiving a string of praise from across the A-League. Avoiding what would have been a famous comeback against the Western Sydney Wanderers last week and picking up what was a stunning 5-3 win, the Melbourne based outfit have skyrocketed into the top-seven and still know that they hold a fair few games in hand over the teams around them. Suddenly enjoying their brightest run of the season so far, United have now won four of their last five contests either side of the break and will be smelling a golden opportunity as they meet the former champions on Wednesday morning.
Bet: Western United 13/5 to beat Perth Glory in Wednesday’s A-League contest @ 888sport
