Western United and Western Sydney Wanderers meet at Jubilee Oval in a game that is crucial to their hopes of making the A-League finals. Both sit four points outside the top six and need a win to boost their chances of going beyond the regular season.

Western United Form


Western United's hopes of making the finals in their debut season in the A-League suffered a blow when they lost 1-0 to Newcastle Jets on Sunday. But with four games still to play, their fate is in their own hands.

They trail sixth-placed Adelaide United by four points, although the Reds could extend that gap as they face Sydney FC on Thursday.

Prior to the defeat to the Jets, Western United had won three straight including a 2-1 win over Melbourne Victory on their return to action after the season was suspended. 

Western Sydney Wanderers Form


Western Sydney Wanderers' four-game unbeaten run came to an end when they lost 3-1 to Perth Glory on Tuesday. That result may have signalled an end to any finals hopes, although they aren't dead just yet.

Wanderers sit in ninth spot on 30 points - the same number as Western United. But, significantly, they have played two games more and must now realisitically win both remaining fixtures and hope other results go their way.

Western United vs Western Sydney Wanderers Head to Head


There have been only two previous meetings between these sides. Western United won the inaugural fixture 2-1 at home in November before the most recent clash ended in a 1-1 draw. 

Western United's Aaron Calver scored three minutes from time to cancel out Patrick Ziegler's goal and earn his side a point.
