Match preview: Wanderers vs City

After a circuit-breaking victory over Sydney FC, Melbourne City now have the opportunity to hopefully build momentum with another win when they take on Western Sydney Wanderers on Tuesday night.

The 3-2 result last Tuesday over the reigning A-League champions was crucial given that it snapped a three-game losing streak and saw the team return to its best attacking form. A Jamie Maclaren brace either side of Adrian Luna’s tap-in was enough to secure the result despite a late fightback from the visitors.

The Wanderers’ most recent result was a 2-3 defeat at the hands of Adelaide United. Despite dominating the encounter in terms of shots, possession and the quality of chances created, Western Sydney just couldn’t keep out a ruthlessly efficient Reds frontline up the other end.
