Western United vs Melbourne City Team News

Prior to the start of the campaign, Melbourne City were never considered potential title challengers with the likes of Wellington Phoenix and Melbourne Victory given the go-ahead to push for glory. However, Erick Mombaerts’ men have defied all odds to finish second on the standings.

Never really an easy campaign, City put forth a strong performance to challenge Sydney FC for the title. But for some lackluster performances along the way, Heart should be right up there on the log, giving defending champions Sydney FC a run for their money.

A second-place finish will go down well with the club supporters as it has afforded them a direct ticket to the playoff semifinals. Having slightly missed out on the Premiership, they stand a great chance of clinching the Championship to qualify for the AFC Champions League.

Last time out against Adelaide United, Mombaerts’ charges were deemed huge favorites for the win given their imperious run of form heading to the game. However, they managed to bottle their chances and were held to a thrilling 2-2 draw.

End-to-end piece of football it was at the ANZ Stadium, both sides went all out for the win. After Melbourne City roared to a two-goal first-half lead, they looked well on-course for a routine victory. But Adelaide United rallied around late-on to salvage a point.

Meanwhile, Western United will equally be delighted with their displays this season. They are currently fifth on the log with 39 points from 25 games, and are already guaranteed a spot in the playoff series. However, a win here will see them move up to third.

They have been in red-hot form in recent weeks with three wins on the bounce. Last time out, they recorded a famous 2-1 victory over Premiership champions Sydney FC, much to the delight of the club supporters. Rudan’s men seem extra-driven to end their season on a strong note.

For this fixture, it is worth noting that both sides have absolutely nothing to lose here. They have already realized their ambitions, and will be more focused on the playoffs coming up soon. However, they will fancy their chances of securing bragging rights here.
