Western United FC (DLLLW)
In contrast to the highs of winning their first-ever league title the previous season, John Aloisi's squad has struggled mightily this season, and they are currently languishing in 11th place in the A-League table, just one point ahead of the club that is currently at the bottom of the table, Melbourne Victory.
A lack of defensive solidity has been a problem for the home team so far, as evidenced by the fact that they have the worst record in the division for goals allowed (34).
However, they were able to win a crucial victory in their most recent match, as Noah Botic's brace and Tongo Doumbia's goal supplied them with all three points. This has provided them with an opportunity to make a late championship playoff push, which was previously out of reach.
They have not kept a clean sheet in any of their past five matches, so it will be essential for them to maintain a strong foundation at the back as they go up against an opponent who has been in excellent scoring form as of late.
Perth Glory FC (DDLDL)
The away team comes into this match having failed to win any of their previous five matches. They will be doing everything in their power to secure three points, as doing so will provide them with the opportunity to advance to the next stage of the competition for the first time since the 2019-20 season.
In their most recent match, Perth were unable to hold onto the early lead that Jack Clisby provided for his team. Instead, Brisbane were able to come away with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals scored by Tom Aldred and Henry Hore.
Despite this, they have been in good scoring form as of late, as The Glory have scored at least one goal in each of their most recent nine matches, and they have scored two or more goals in seven of those contests.
However, the outcome of this match will once again be determined by their defensive prowess, as they have let in a plethora of goals in their most recent matches and have not kept a clean sheet in any of their most recent eight matches. This means that their defensive prowess will determine the outcome of this match.
The away team will enter this clash with the mindset that they can get a result against their opponents despite the fact that they were defeated by Western United in their most recent meeting against each other in this season's competition.
