Reason For Melbourne City vs Western United Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in six of Melbourne City’s last seven games.
  • Both teams have scored in all three previous meetings between Melbourne City and Western United.
  • Melbourne City and Western United have averaged 1.88 and 1.77 goals per game respectively this season.

Melbourne City ended the regular season with a 3-1 thumping of Western United last week, and now they’ll be looking to do the same again as both sides vie for their first ever A-League Grand Final appearance.

City, who finished as runners up in the regular campaign, come into this having won five of their last eight and, while they did beat Western United last time out, they have to be on their toes against a side that has won seven of their last nine and made the top six in their first season in the A-League.

As if often the case in the A-League, goals are expected to flow freely on Wednesday. Melbourne City finished as joint top scorers in the table but conceded 37 in 26 games. Western United equalled this poor defensive record and scored just three fewer goals than Sydney FC and Melbourne City.

Both teams have scored in six of Melbourne City’s last seven games and in each of their three previous meetings with Western United, so backing that looks a solid option for Wednesday morning.

It’s hard to pick a winner from these fairly evenly matched sides, and a stalemate looks the most likely outcome. Melbourne City played out a 2-2 draw against Adelaide United earlier this month and with these teams averaging 1.88 and 1.77 goals per game respectively, a 2-2 correct score prediction is our choice.
