Form guide

Western United is coming off a break after its clash with Sydney FC was postponed last week due to Victoria’s five-day lockdown.

The matchweek prior saw United fall to a red-hot Central Coast Mariners side, who turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead in just four minutes.

The Green and Black has had a sluggish start to the season, winning one game while drawing and losing twice each.

An immense performance is required from Mark Rudan’s side if they are to defeat Macarthur, who are currently one of the league’s in-form teams.

Macarthur currently sit second on the A-League table, with four wins and two draws from eight matches.

The team from South-West Sydney showed their ruthlessness on Friday night as they demolished Adelaide United 4-0.

Last time they met

Saturday’s match will be the first-ever meeting between these clubs.
