Sydney form and stats

Sydney are returning here after visiting Wellington Phoenix in a A-League game and winning with a 2-1 scoreline. Luke Brattan and Calem Nieuwenhof scored the goal(s). The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a AFC Champions League home game that ended 1-1 versus Yokohama F. Marinos.

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from Sydney's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played five games, won four matches, drawn zero and lost one.

Last season, Sydney's league statistics were 16 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses, resulting in a 1st position in the A-League. Over these 26 matches they scored 49 goals and conceded 25. Playing at home last season Sydney managed 9-1-3 (win-draw-lost) with 24 goals and 12 conceded.

Western Sydney Wanderers form and stats

Only one away game in the A-League so far for Western Sydney Wanderers and it resulted in three points. Last season the statistics for their away games were 4 victories, 2 draws and 7 losses from 13 travels.

Wanderers play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 2-1 victory visiting Newcastle Jets (placed 12th). The game before that, was lost at home, a 0-1 defeat against Macarthur.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Wanderers playing away, we found eight games. Results were one away win, one draw and six home wins.

The schedule is very tough for Wanderers now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A A-League game at Central Coast Mariners is waiting in only three days.

As for goals scored and conceded in the league games away so far, Western Sydney Wanderers has managed 2 goals and let in 1 from 1 match.

Head 2 Head
