Our prediction for this A League match:
A place in the A-League playoffs final will be at stake when Melbourne City and Western United face each other at Bankwest Stadium. Melbourne City booked their place in the semis thanks to a top-two finish, but they can’t afford any complacency in Wednesday’s football game. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Jamie MacLaren, who has netted 22 goals in the Australian top flight so far this term.
Western United, on the other hand, are eager to get their revenge on Melbourne City for the defeat at Jubilee Oval. Italian veteran, who scored the winner in the quarter-final clash against Brisbane Roar, is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Melbourne City do not suit Western United. Erick Mombaerts’ troops are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over Mark Rudan’s team.
