Description: PG Vs WST Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: A win for Western United today sees them ease their way into the coveted top 6.
With Adelaide United only managing to scamper their way to a draw against Sydney yesterday, Western United’s path towards the quarter-finals has become clearer and easier. A win for them today would see them finally breach the top 6 of the A-League 2019-20, a position the side is completely worthy of at the moment.
The three month break did a world of good to Western United. The side was in horrendous touch way back in March with nothing clicking for the time, a predicament which saw the side fast losing relevance and seeing the curtains come down on their season.
However, given the side’s current form, it’s hard to believe that they found themselves in such an embargo earlier in the season. There’s not a speckle of that besmirched form to be found in the club at the moment with the team completely dismissing its aberrations to register three wins in four matches since the return.
PG Vs WST Dream11 Probable Winner
Where Western United are a ruthless juggernaut at the moment with their invigoration placing them on the cusp of qualification into the top 6, Perth Glory on the other hand have completely collapsed. With three defeats in their last four encounters, the club finds itself hanging onto the barest of margins to remain inside the top 6.
And with the club ascertained of a place inside the quarter-finals, we envision little from then come today. Western United mean business and in electric touch, they should manage to do more than enough to forage a win.

Dream 11 Picks
Hitting five goals in the bygone encounter, Western United saw their well functioning attack lead them to a 5-3 win on the day. This attack will batter Perth Glory today with Perth’s defensive vulnerabilities seeing the side in a pickle at the moment.
The only player who can rescue Perth Glory from an embarrassing scoreline is Liam Reddy. The goal-keeper has been in fine touch off late, pulling off a string of saves in the face of adversity to see him be enshrined in our side as the shot stopper.
With a cleansheet far from likely for either side today given both these teams paper thin defence, it was only rightful of us to limit ourselves to the three defenders. And all of them will be cheap picks with each one costing a frugal 8 credits as well look to open up funds to invest elsewhere in our Dream 11 side.
We begin with the partnership of Tomoki Imai and Tomislav Uslok from Western United. Uslok has been deployed into the CDM docket by his club, a new found role which makes him subliminal value given his ability to turnover possession from defence to attack.
Perth Glory will meanwhile see us repose faith in the services of the gritty and gusty Tarek Elrich for the impending outing.
Taking his tally to 7 goals and 7 assists for the season after scoring in the bygone encounter, Alessandro Diamanti once again showed why he’s the fulcrum of his side’s attacking slot. The player has been quiessential to his side’s revival in the league with his resplendent attacking performances spearheading his side into the top 6.
Connor Pain snagged an assist in the same fixture to see him make an advent into our side as well. Perth Glory will on the other hand see us opt for the services of Neil Kilkenny once again with the player having popped up with the 3 goals and 5 assists for his side.
With Western United shipping three goals the last time around to show that they are capable of being exploited defensively, we have both Juande Lopez and Jake Brimmer join us up for the day. The two myriad and guile filled names will move in tandem and spur the side in its aspirations of snapping out of its soup.
It not just the 16 goals which Besart Berisha have to his name which see us make him a must have pick for the encounter. The player has waged a lone battle for the club all across the season, helping the side squirm its way to positive results at a time when he found frugal support from his counterparts.
A goal for Max Burgess the last time he took to the middle see him come in alongside Besart to close out our set of picks for the impending scrimmage.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Western United’s top scorer in the league, Berisha will captain our side while Kilkenny is the vice-captain.
