Western Sydney Wanderers v Adelaide United A-League Match Preview and Predictions - Wanderers must win

Gary Emmerson 14 Apr 2018
  • Western Sydney Wanderers must win to make the finals
  • Adelaide United are unbeaten in the last five head to heads
  • Wanderers are unbeaten in their last five home games, Adelaide have lost their last three away games

Western Sydney Wanderers head into the final game of the regular A-League season knowing they must beat Adelaide United to make the finals.

Western Sydney v Adelaide kicks off at 5.00pm AEST at ANZ Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview


Brisbane Roar's win over Perth Glory on Saturday night has left Western Sydney Wanderers in must-win territory heading into the last game of the A-League season on Sunday.

Visitors Adelaide United are assured of a place in the finals but the Wanderers have to beat the Reds at ANZ Stadium. It was the scenario Western Sydney didn't want but the Roar's 3-2 victory pushed them into the crucial sixth spot, two points clear of the Wanderers.

Josep Gombau's side would now be out of finals contention had they not recorded a 3-0 win over Brisbane last week and they will need a similar performance if they are to overcome Adelaide.

The Reds were beaten 3-0 by Sydney FC last week but prior to that had enjoyed a three-game unbeaten run to move to secure their spot in the finals. 

A defeat by the same three-goal margin would actually see Adelaide drop down to sixth at the expense of Western Sydney on goal difference.

But I don't see Marco Kurz's side having to worry about that despite the Wanderers being unbeaten in their last five home games, and Adelaide having lost their last three on the road.

In head to heads between these two, Adelaide are unbeaten in the last five meetings with two wins and three draws. They can secure at least a share of the points in this one too and break Western Sydney hearts. 

Match Odds


Western Sydney Wanderers - $1.64
Adelaide United - $5.00 
Draw - $4.00
