A-League Preview: Western United vs Macarthur FC


Western United will look to break its winless streak on Monday night when it takes on Macarthur FC in Sydney.

Form Guide

Western United: LLLLL

Macarthur FC: DWWDL

United come into the game without a win from its past eight matches.

The Green and Black broke their goalscoring drought on Friday night when Alessandro Diamanti fired from the spot, but it meant little in a 6-1 loss to Melbourne Victory.

Macarthur has had a mixed run of results, winning two matches from their past five as they look to secure a finals berth in their inaugural season.

Previous meetings

It’s one win apiece in the short history between these two sides.

United was too good in Ballarat earlier in the season, winning 4-1 at Mars Stadium.

The Bulls took all three points a few match weeks later, coming from behind to defeat United 2-1 in Campbelltown.
