Western United vs Newcastle Jets Match Analysis & Prediction
15/01/2023 9:00 am
Western United and Newcastle Jets meet in A-League on Sunday, with both heading into the game off the back of defeats in their most recent matches and will be hoping to immediately get back on track.
Western United sit just one point above the foot of the table at the moment, showcasing the difficult start to the season they have endured.
With just three victories across their opening 11 games, there is plenty of room for improvement in the new year, which the team will have to start showing.
However, they kicked off the new year on a negative last weekend when they were beaten 4-0 by the current league leaders Melbourne City.
A victory on Sunday could take Western United as high as seventh in the table should other results go their way, which would help the club start moving closer third place, a spot in which they finished last year.
Meanwhile Newcastle Jets sit just one place above their opponents, which makes this a crucial game for both as far as the league standings are concerned.
However, Newcastle Jets enter the contest out of form after losing their previous two games without scoring a single goal, with their most recent defeat coming against Macarthur FC through a 2-0 scoreline.
With just three goals from their six away matches to start the season, there is certainly room for improvement, which is a pressure that the attacking players will be feeling.
Western United vs. Newcastle Jets Head to head
In the previous eight meetings between these two teams, Western United have claimed four victories while Newcastle Jets have won two, and they have drawn twice. Jets have scored five goals and conceded eight in the process.
