How much more can the Wanderers fans take of propping up the rest of the league? After a poor season last year the Red and Black look set for another season as the A-League whipping boys. On Sunday they face another test when Perth Glory visit Wanderland.
It was not supposed to be like this for the Wanderers. The squad underwent a huge renovation in the pre-season break and people new that the high number of new signings would need time to come together as a team but nobody planned on it taking this long or things going this badly. The Red and Black have just one point from their first three games and if they suffer yet another defeat on Sunday the fans will begin to turn as the pre-season optimism disappears.
The bookies think that things will improve for the home side on Sunday with every single book making them favourites. The biggest price available on Wanderers is with 10Bet who are offering them at 1.95. Glory are priced up at 4.75 with Bet365 but they have already beaten Wanderers this season in the Westfield FFA Cup, part of the run that has seen them reach the final.
It’s not only the cup run that has boosted Perth’s morale. Glory picked up their first win of the season in last week’s 3-1 win over Adelaide and they’ll make the trip to play Wanderers in good spirits. They have one of the best attacks in the league which is spurred on by Richard Garcia who loves his role as captain. While things should turn eventually for head coach Tony Popovic who is trying to go about things the right way with Western Sydney, those odds of 4.75 are too big to turn down.
One of the major problems for the Wanderers has been keeping goals out. In fact, it’s now 16 games without a clean sheet for Popovic’s men. They’ll know that if they are to get anything out of the game they’ll have to score, probably more than once. Popovic does have some talented players to call upon in the attacking positions but they’ll have to perform better than they have so far. With the backing of the fans you can expect the Wanderers to at least find the net on Sunday so make sure to add both teams to score to your betting which is a top price of 1.83 with BetVictor.
In a game that should guarantee goals it is always fun to have a bet on the first goalscorer. The favourites to score the opening goal of the game are Brendon Santalab (6.5 with Centrebet) and Federico Piovaccari (6.5 with William Hill). Both players certainly have chances to break the deadlock but we can’t overlook the inform Richard Garcia who is a 15 shot with Sportsbet. Garcia looked brilliant in Glory’s last game against Adelaide United and he’d dearly love to lead from example, coming up with the goods once again at a brilliant price.
