Match Preview: Sydney FC v Western Sydney Wanderers

CommBank Stadium in Parramatta is the venue once again for the second Sydney Derby of the 2021/2022 season.

Sydney FC take on the Wanderers after the two sides had to settle for a 0-0 draw in Round One earlier this season.

Both teams will have a different look about them when they take to the field on Saturday night. Sydney FC has welcomed back a number of players from injury since the contest as well as adding Mustafa Amini and Luciano Narsingh to their stocks.

The Wanderers have changed Coach since the first match with former Sydney FC defender Mark Rudan replacing Carl Robinson in the dugout.

Team news:

Sydney FC coach Steve Corica illuded to in his press conference that new signing Luciano Narsingh could feature from the substitutes bench against the Wanderers.

Adam Le Fondre could start the match as he nears a return to full fitness while the Englishman could be partnered up front with Bobô who came on as a substitute in Sydney’s last outing against Melbourne City.

Kosta Barbarouses is likely to see more action after featuring from the bench in Sydney FC’s previous two matches. Corica and his side will have benefited from having a full week of training without any mid-week disruptions.

The Wanderers haven’t featured since their 1-0 defeat by the Newcastle Jets which was almost two weeks ago. Tomer Hemed could return to the starting line-up after coming on as a substitute against the Jets.
