The A-League is back in action with its 2021-22 edition this weekend as Sydney FC take on Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday. Both teams have impressive squads this season and will be intent on winning the Sydney Derby this weekend.

Western Sydney Wanderers secured an eighth-placed finish last season and have been inconsistent for the better part of the year. The Wanderers eased past Broadmeadow Magic by a 3-0 margin in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.

Sydney FC, on the other hand, lost out to Melbourne City in the A-League Grand Final last season and will want to go a step further this season. The away side has been a dominant force in recent years and has a point to prove in this match.

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Sydney 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 Bobo and Adam Le Fondre have delivered for the away side in the past and will look to make an impact this weekend.

Western Sydney Wanderers failed to meet expectations last season and have a point to prove in the coming weeks. Sydney FC are the better team on paper, however, and hold the upper hand going into this game.

Prediction: Western Sydney Wanderers 1-2 Sydney FC
