It will be a battle of red-hot West teams as Kenny Lowe‘s Perth Glory of Perth, Western Australia host Tony Popovic‘s Western Sydney Wanderers of Blacktown, Western Sydney.

nib Stadium is set to see a number of traveling Wanderers fans make the journey to the land of the sandgropers to see if their Wanderers side can continue their red-hot win streak and put the pressure on Brisbane Roar. The Wanderers are currently 7-1-2 (22 points), while the Glory are 3-1-6 (10 points) but are on a winning streak of their own, having shut down Central Coast and Melbourne Victory.

“We feel really good…to win the last seven games is not normal, it doesn’t matter whether you’re in Spain or Australia,” Andreu Mayoral told reporters on Tuesday. “Always you need time [to gel as a new team], not just to know your team-mates, the coach, the staff but also the league and to know about the life [in Australia].

“Now after four or five months you can see the results. We feel good, not just the foreigners but the new players from Australia that have come into the club. We are a really good family in the team and if we keep working like that we have many chances to win the league.”

Kickoff is scheduled for 2:40 a.m. PT/5:40 a.m. ET. Here’s what we think will happen in this contest between Perth Glory and Western Sydney Wanderers.

  • At least four goals will be scored.
  • Diego Castro will score for Perth Glory.
  • Jamal Reiners will score for Perth Glory.
  • Mark Bridge will score for Western Sydney Wanderers.
  • Mitch Nichols will score for Western Sydney Wanderers.
  • Andrew Redmayne will make at least five saves.
  • Ante Covic will make at least four saves.
  • At least 30 fouls will be whistled.
  • At least three cards will be issued.
  • “Who Do We Sing For?” will be chanted at least five times.
  • The Poznan will be on showcase.

Western Sydney’s winning streak will end here, but the unbeaten run will go on, as the Wanderers get a vital away point in the West. As for Perth, this will be a critical two points dropped, and they will need every point they can get to claw their way to the middle of the table.

Perth Glory 2, Western Sydney Wanderers 2
