Sydney United beat another A-League side – Western United – in the Round of 16 on penalties before taking care of Peninsula Power by 1-0 in the last 8.
On the other hand, Macarthur Bulls have been unstoppable under their new manager and former Manchester United forward Dwight Yorke.
Macarthur scored 17 goals so far in the tournament and conceded just two. They took care of Newcastle Olympic by 6-0 and Modbury Jets by 4-0 to reach the last 8.
They performed another dominating performance to beat Wellington Phoenix by 2-0 before beating Oakleigh Cannons 5-2 in the semi-finals.
Both Sydney United and Macarthur will make history when they meet tonight as they look for their first silverware and a spot in the AFC tournament.
Macarthur FC Lineup and Team News
There are no reported injury concerns for Dwight Yorke’s side. Their new signing Daniel Arzani scored a brace in their 5-2 win over Oakleigh in the semi-finals. He would lead up front.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Kurto; McGing, Uskok, Aspropotamitis, Vujica; De Silva, Baccus; Toure, Davila, Arzani; Rose
Sydney United Lineup and Team News
It’s unlikely Miro Vlastelica would tinker with his winning combination. He would stick with the players that have got them to the Australia Cup final.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Nizic; Roberts, Perkatis, Vlastelica, Gonzalez; Tomelic, Agamemnonos; Kaneko, Maia, Bilic; Payne
It’s been a fairytale run for Sydney United to reach the Australia Cup final and be the first NPL club to do so. They took down two A-League clubs on their way to the final, a win on penalties against Western United in the Round of 16 and an extra-time victory over Brisbane Roar in the semi-finals. Macarthur will be their 3rd A-League opponent.
Sydney United scored 8 goals so far in the tournament and conceded 3. On the other hand, Macarthur Bulls have been dominating in the tournament. They scored 17 goals and conceded just 2 en route to the final.
After finishing 7th in the A-League last season, Dwight Yorke took over Macarthur as the new manager. Macarthur Bulls are unbeaten under him. They are looking for their first silverware in the club’s five-year history.
It would be a difficult night for Sydney United against a high-scoring opponent. The final is always intriguing. We predict Macarthur will clinch the title.
- Sydney United 1-2 Macarthur
