How to watch Macarthur FC vs Western Sydney Wanderers A-League live and match preview
Macarthur FC and Western Sydney are both looking to bounce back from shaky form as they face off in a huge A-League clash this week.
Macarthur FC enters this clash sitting in 5th place, but they have gone win-less across their last 3 matches, including a heavy defeat to Melbourne City last week. They are within striking distance of 3rd, but also a chance to fall out of the 6 altogether.
Western Sydney are in the position of having games in hand on some rivals due to the COVID-interrupted schedule, but are coming from a long way back on the table. They will be buoyed by a very impressive display against Sydney FC in a 2-0 win last week.
When is Macarthur FC vs Western Sydney?
The match gets underway at 7:45PM AEDT on Saturday 12 March at the Campbelltown Sports Stadium in Sydney.

Who will win Macarthur FC vs Western Sydney Wanderers?
This is a fascinating match-up on paper. Trying to split this contest is tricky, given Macarthur's indifferent form in the new year and the Wanderers' mini resurgence last week.
For Western Sydney, it was another example of quirky things happening when they play Sydney FC. In a super display of football, they produced their best form of the season to topple their big brother again.
Macarthur's form-line over the entire season is stronger, but they are struggling to score and their fluency of ball movement has dropped away.
We sense the Wanderers might ride the wave from last week and claim another scalp in their quest to stay in touch with the top 6.
