Description: WST Vs MLC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Last league stage encounter dishes our way a ripper of a jaffer this Wednesday.
Western United have been the talk of the town ever since the A-League 2019-20 has resumed action. The side has not only been the most in form side since the league’s resumption but has scripted a turnaround few had given them a chance back in March.
In the fracas for the relegation zone before Coronavirus turned things upside down, Western United were constantly pushing their luck in the league. The side was scouring its way for an elusive win in a bid to avoid relegation with the side’s only concern at the moment being of veering clear of the drop this season.
However, the turn of COVID in the competition gave much needed breathing space to Western United. And the side ensured it made the most of the break it got to address the elephant in the room to snap out of its quagmire as the league restarted in July with the side torching its way into the top 6 with three wins on the spin.
WST Vs MLC Dream11 Probable Winner
Defeating Sydney 2-1 the last time around to rake up their fourth win in five encounters, Western United can now move as high as third in the points tally with a fourth successive win today. Gone is the side which was nothing but a sitting duck with the side having embedded in place all the nitty gritties needed to make leaps and bounds progress in the league.
Elsewhere, second placed Melbourne City have been on a persistent downward spiral since the league has begun again. The side’s 2-2 draw the last time around leaves the side with just two wins in its last five encounters.
However, there’s a reason why City find themselves in second place and we envision the team giving itself a good account today. This has the makings of an intoxicating brew, one where two sides will give it their all the day.
This will be a goals galore affair, one which should end with a point apiece for either side.

Dream 11 Picks
Attack has taken centrestage for Western United and rightfully after helping the side make massive headway in the league. However, it wouldn’t have been possible without a turnaround in the side’s defensive for, something which Filip Kurto assured with a slew of well versed strings of goal-keeping displays.
With both the sides being in imperious touch when it comes to the attacking docket, the likelihood of a cleansheet for either setup is extremely improbable. It’s a discourse which sees us opt for only three names in this facet with all the names being opted for given their attacking inclination.
It’s a narrative which sees us make Western United’s Dylan Pierias the first pick over here. The wingback torched his way into the side’s soirees to accrue an assist against Sydney to ma him a must have pick.
Melbourne City will elsewhere see us opt for a duo from the side. In between their stuttering form, the side has managed to squirm out a couple of cleansheets, ones solely responsible due to the acumen of Nathaniel Atkinson and Harrison Delbridge.
His assist against Sydney now sees Western United’s Alessandro Diamanti having registered the 7 goals and 7 assists for the club this season. He’s formed a daunting partnership alongside Steven Lustica who scored for the club in the same fixture, a partnership responsible for an uptick in the side’s form.
Now up to the 5 goals and 5 assists this season for his club, Adrian Luna has stepped up at a time when the team has struggled to find its footing in the league. We are pairing him up with Joshua Brillante with the two names capable of moving in tandem and sprucing the side’s ambitions of closing out the league stages with a win.
Melbourne City’s top scorer in the league with a behemoth 20 goals and 4 assists, Jamie Maclaren has never left our side and he won’t depart today as well. Breathing down his neck with 19 goals to his name is the opposition’s Besart Berisha to make him our go to man for this clash.
He’s partnered up with the enigmatic Max Burgess who has three goals and one assist to see the two make for a formidable duo.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With a goal to his name the last time around, Jamie will step into our side as the captain while Berisha is the vice-captain.
