Western Sydney Wanderers v Melbourne Victory: match preview

Western Sydney Wanderers and Melbourne Victory will both be looking to end tumultuous campaigns on a high when they clash at Bankwest Stadium on Wednesday night.

Wanderers (ninth) and Victory (tenth) are both at the wrong end of the ladder and won’t feature in the finals, which is consider a failure for clubs of their size.

But the time to start rebuilding for the 2020/21 campaign has already begun and what better way to head into the next season than with a win.

And there could be goals in this one, with the Wanderers involved in an eight-goal thriller in their last outing (losing 5-3 to Western United FC), while Victory ran rampant against Perth Glory in their last match, winning 4-0.
