Western Sydney Wanderers vs Adelaide United match information

Time: 16:30 (GMT+8) on February 21st

Venue: Bankwest Stadium

Competition: 2020 A-League

Western Sydney Wanderers is currently standing at the 8th place at the table. The Wanderers have had a win and draw – 1-1 against Newcastle Jets on the weekend – since de Marigny took over the first-team from the sacked Markus Babbel. Their key player this season is Mitchell Duke. Until now, the striker has had 7 goals for the team.

Up against them at the next match will be Adelaide United. The team is staying at the 4th position, and potentially running for a ticket to the A-League Final Series Play-offs. Adelaide United are perched nicely inside the top four after a late 2-0 win over Central Coast Mariners in Round 19. That’s now four wins from the last five games for Gertjan Verbeek’s troops, who are getting results despite a lengthy injury list, although the emergence of teen sensation Mohamed Toure has been a major boost.

The Wanderers have won their last two clashes against Adelaide, including a thrilling and controversial match 3-2 at Coopers Stadium earlier this season.

Another surprise won't be ruled out as the result of the next match, but with the form Adelaide United is experiencing, a win is more favorable to them.
