The A-League is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Sydney FC take on Macarthur FC on Saturday. Both teams made unflattering starts to their campaigns and will need to step up this weekend.

Macarthur FC are in fifth place in the A-League standings and have blown hot and cold for much of the past year. The Bulls played out a 1-1 draw against Wellington Phoenix in their previous game and have a point to prove in this game.

Sydney FC are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and were held to a 0-0 stalemate by their local rivals last week. The home side reached the A-League Grand Final earlier this year and will want to go a step further this season.

Sydney FC vs Macarthur FC Prediction

Sydney FC have been impressive in the A-League in recent years and have not made many changes to their squad this season. The likes of Trent Buhagiar and Adam Le Fondre have delivered for the hosts in the past and will look to make an impact this weekend.

Macarthur FC have endured a tumultuous period off the pitch and will need sporting success to bring some stability to the club. Sydney FC are the better team at the moment, however, and should be able to win this game.

Prediction: Sydney FC 2-1 Macarthur FC
