ANALYST

The A-League is back in action with another round of matches this week as Western United take on Macarthur FC at the Leichhardt Oval on Monday. The two teams have experienced contrasting fortunes this season and have a point to prove this season.

Macarthur FC are in sixth place in the A-League standings at the moment and have been fairly impressive this season. The Bulls suffered a 2-1 defeat against Central Coast Mariners in their previous game and will want to bounce back in this match.

Western United, on the other hand, have been shockingly poor this season and find themselves in 10th place in the league table. The home side was stunned by Melbourne Victory by a 6-1 margin last week and cannot afford another debacle this season.


Western United vs Macarthur FC Head-to-Head

Western United and Macarthur FC are on an even footing as far as the head-to-head record is concerned and have won one game apiece out of a total of two games played between the two teams.

The previous meeting between the two A-League sides took place in March earlier this year and ended in a 2-1 victory for Macarthur FC. Western United were not at their best on the day and have a point to prove this week.
