Another five game of A-League fixtures to look forward to this weekend, kicking off on Friday night and continuing through Sunday evening. As usual, the SundayLeagueShark has you covered with a few of his best bets of the week below.
Friday Feb 26th 9.10pm (AEDT)
It’s been a bit hard to get a read on who will be the contending teams so far in this A-League season. The Mariners at the top of the ladder have played nine games already while the Perth Glory have played just five so far. The Glory will be at home on Friday night as they take on the Brisbane Roar. Perth had a slow start to the season but have won their last two games on the trot over Melbourne City and Adelaide United.
The Roar currently sit in second place on the ladder with a 4-2-2 record but don’t bring much form into this clash. They have played out 0-0 draws in their last two games following a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Macarthur. That means they are scoreless in their last three games and a trip to Perth certainly won’t boost their spirits.
Love the value of the Glory at home here. They are a great side when playing in Perth and have lost just one game at home to Brisbane since 2013. They have the form and history on their side here.
Saturday Feb 27th 7.15pm (AEDT)
An interesting Melbourne Derby headlines the Saturday night action in the A-League as the Victory host Western United from 7.15pm. The Victory sit in 11th place on the ladder with just a 2-1-5 record through their opening games. They have allowed 13 games through 8 games, second only to the Wellington Phoenix. They are coming off a win, but it was against the aforementioned Phoenix, the only team below them on the ladder.
The Victory will get a good chance to secure another win on Saturday night as they come up against the struggling Western United. United sit in 10th place on the table and have won just one of their last three games .They are coming off a solid win over Macarthur on the weekend, and could potentially jump as high as 5th with a win here.
Melbourne Victory start as underdogs at home, which is granted given their poor start to the season. Tough to pick a winner but I think this matchup will provide some goals. The two teams have played against each other four times since Western United entered the league and in those four games there has been 12 goals scored, which includes a 0-0 draw in their last meeting. They have both had leaky defences this season so back this one to be an up and down clash.
Over 2.5 Goals
Sunday Feb 28th 4.05pm (AEDT)
The Sunday evening clash between Sydney FC and Macarthur should be a good one. Macarthur have been one of the surprise packets of the season so far but will start as underdogs against the reigning champion Sydney FC. Macarthur have a 4-2-3 record and sit in third place on the ladder, but they are coming off a disappointing 4-1 loss at the hands of Western United in their last game.
Sydney FC have played just seven games this season, who less than their opponents on the weekend and currently sit in 5th place with a 3-2-2 record. They were defeated by Melbourne City in their last game but have shown glimpses of their dominance of last year at stages throughout the early parts of the season.
Given it’s Macarthur’s first year in the competition, the two sides have met just once before, back on the 30th of January. Sydney were comfortable winners on that night, taking a 3-0 victory on the back of goals from Wood and Ninkovic. Back them to win again on Sunday.
