Melbourne City FC will welcome Western Sydney Wanderers to AAMI Park for a matchday 26 fixture in Australia A-League. The last meeting on 26th March 2021 ended in a Melbourne City FC 4-1 win. Both sides have met twenty-six times in the most recent seasons. Melbourne City FC has won 10 matches, and Western Sydney Wanderers triumphed in 11. Recent outings average 3.27 goals, while both teams score 65% of the time.

Melbourne City FC's last game in the Australia A-League against Melbourne Victory FC at home ended in a 2-2 draw. They had more ball possession and created more goal-scoring opportunities but didn't benefit from it. Melbourne City FC was dangerous in both halves and scored in the 60th and 63rd minute.

Western Sydney Wanderers's previous game in the competition versus Central Coast Mariners ended in an away 2-0 loss. Western Sydney Wanderers didn't turn up and failed to create clear cut chances for most of the game.

So far, Melbourne City FC plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.67 points per away game on average compared to 1.60 points at home. Although Melbourne City FC is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 20% home clean sheets.

Western Sydney Wanderers has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Western Sydney Wanderers has collected 1.33 points on average per away game, compared to 0.67 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Western Sydney Wanderers kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Melbourne City FC is currently unbeaten at home in three games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.

Wanderers failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Sunday and win against Melbourne City FC.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Melbourne City FC wins on average 1.60 points per home game, compared to 1.33 points per away game for Western Sydney Wanderers. My prediction is Melbourne City FC to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.13 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 25% of Melbourne City FC's home and Western Sydney Wanderers's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don't think this one on Sunday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 25% of Melbourne City FC's home and Western Sydney Wanderers's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
