Monday night football stat zone: Besart Berisha


A cracking Monday night of A-League football awaits as Western United head west to face Glory. And for the family of Green and Black fans in these self-isolation times, it’s a perfect time to come together – albeit online – to watch the team.

There won’t be any fans at Perth’s HBF Park, due to the restrictions in place to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

This means the Green and Black family will be together – albeit online – cheering the boys on from homes around the west and the rest of Australia.

On the back of two bumper wins in the A-League – a 6-2 and a 5-1 – United and Berisha are on fire.

And to help add to your Monday Night Football pleasure, we’ve prepared a stat deck for Western United’s deadly striker, the A-League legend himself Besart Berisha.
