The final game of this A-League weekend is a Sydney derby as Graham Arnold’s table-toppers play host to the Wanderers. Sydney FC are the runaway league leaders at present having lost just one of their first 20 regular seasons fixtures. They come into this clash off the back of a 14-game unbeaten streak and they will be heavy favourites to not only earn all three points on Sunday but also local bragging rights.

The last time these two sides met was back in December 2017 at the ANZ Stadium and it was a day to forget for the Western Sydney Wanderers. They would not only fail to earn supremacy in this local derby, but they were also hit for five by the current A-League leaders as Graham Arnold’s men strolled to a heavy victory.
