Premiers Plate winners Sydney FC get a chance to rediscover their best form in the final game of the regular season against Western United at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday.

Western United have all but wrapped up a finals spot with two games still to play. They need a point to be mathematically certain, although a vastly superior goal difference already has them in sixth spot.

Sydney FC Form & Team News


Sydney FC have really hit the buffers in the run to the finals. Since the minor premiership was confirmed after a 3-1 win over Wellington Phoenix in the first game back in action, the Sky Blues have picked up just two points from four games.

Sydney lost 2-1 to Newcastle Jets and were defeated 2-0 by second-placed Melbourne City. Two 1-1 draws have followed against Adelaide United and Brisbane Roar, but can they boost morale and head into the finals with a win?

Western United Form & Team News


Western United moved into the top six after Wednesday's 2-0 win over Perth Glory, which was a fifth victory in their last six games. 

They have beaten Central Coast Mariners (6-2), Adelaide United (5-1), Melbourne Victory (2-1) and Western Sydney Wanderers (5-3) in that run, with the only blemish a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle Jets. Only the win over Perth was against a top six side.

While a point is still needed to officially wrap up a finals spot in their debut season, United's goal difference is 15 better than Adelaide United. They are bound for the elimination finals and could finish as high as third.

Sydney FC vs Western United Head to Head


Sydney FC won the only previous meeting between the sides 2-0 in December with Adam Le Fondre's first-half double sealing the points.

Sydney FC vs Western United Odds
