Macarthur vs. Sydney United preview and predicted lineups

  • The Aussie Cup has provided the ideal warm-up for Macarthur ahead of the new A-League season.
  • York has been given an invaluable look at his side and how some players have handled the pressure of the cup.
  • New signing Daniel Arzani scored a brace in the 5-2 semi-final win over Oakleigh Cannons and looks set to make the most of his return to Australia.
  • Mexican star Ulysses Davila is also in fine form and is hard to stop when he is at the top of his game.

Macarthur predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Kurto (GK) – McGing, Uskok, Aspropotamitis, Vujica – De Silva, Baccus – Toure, Davila, Arzani – Rose.

Unlike the Bulls, Sydney United finished eighth in the NPL NSW at the end of their season.

With one final game to play, coach Miro Vilastelka is likely to stick with the players who have led him to the Aussie Cup final.

Experienced Glen Treferro scored the semi-final winner off the bench and will likely be saved as a potential super sub.

Sydney United’s predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Ezek (GK) – Roberts, Perkatis, Villastelka, Gonzalez – Tomelek, Agamemnon – Kaneko, Maia, Bullock – Payne.

Australia Cup final betting odds and prediction

As A-League’s main opposition, Macarthur came into this match as heavy favorites and a strong squad on paper.

Sydney United cannot be underestimated though with a vocal crowd likely to support the underdogs.

Villastelka’s side has also already proven they are capable of beating A-League opposition and know how to grind out results when the pressure is on.

However, Macarthur has found form under new coach Yorke and appears to have too much star power for Sydney United to keep quiet.

Prediction: Macarthur win 2-1
