A-League Men
Sydney and Macarthur will meet in the A-League on Saturday

Sydney will entertain New South Wales-based rivals Macarthur at the Allianz Stadium in the A-League on Saturday.

The hosts resumed their league campaign with an impressive 2-1 win over the reigning champions Melbourne City a fortnight ago but fell to a 2-1 defeat to the Central Coast Mariners last week.

Paulo Retre opened the scoring for them in the 11th minute, but Central Coast overturned the deficit in the first half, thanks to goals from Marco Tรบlio and Dan Hall in three minutes.

Macarthur returned to winning ways last time around as a goal from Bachana Arabuli helped them to a 1-0 win over Perth Glory last Sunday. Macarthur are in fifth place in the league table with 11 points to their name. The hosts are in ninth place in the league table, though only a point separates the two teams in the standings.
