Macarthur will be hoping the Christmas turkey doesn't disrupt their momentum as they chase 5 wins in a row on Boxing Day.

Macarthur FC have been the early season pacesetters in the A-League, with 4 wins in a row launching them to the top of the table. Their latest win was full of merit as they came from behind to defeat Newcastle 2-1, despite being down to 10 men when they lost the lead.

Sydney finally kick started their season with a confident 2-1 victory over Wellington. It was their first win of this campaign, but they still sit 7th meaning they are within striking distance with plenty of football to be played.

Macarthur will host Sydney at 7:45pm AEDT on Sunday 26 December at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in NSW.

Paramount Plus was officially launched in August and has a 7-day free trial for new customers. After that it costs $8.99 a month or there is a discounted annual price of $89.99 which could be the smart option at this early stage of the season.

Who will win Macarthur FC vs Sydney FC?

This will be the third time these sides have met in the space of a month. They clashed in the A-League on 27 November, with Macarthur winning 1-0 in the first of 4 straight league wins. They also met 2 weeks ago in the FFA Cup, with Sydney prevailing 2-0 on that occasion. The Bulls are unbeaten in 2 A-League games against the Sky Blues.

Macarthur have been effective without always being pretty. Last week was a classic example when, despite having their keeper Filip Kurto sent off 18 minutes in, they still were able to come from behind and churn out a great victory.

Sydney FC are always lurking dangerously, despite failing to fire at any point so far this season. They must be respected and we feel that the momentum gained in last week's win over Wellington will serve them well here. We think they'll upset the league leaders and record a 1-0 win.
