W-League SF: Melbourne City vs Western Sydney

How to watch Melbourne City vs Western Sydney semis as W-League goes on despite COVID-19 Pandemic

March 14, 2020 By Juan Aguerrevere
Football Federation Australia decided the show must go on, giving the W-League semifinals the green light amid the spread of the Coronavirus.

On Friday night, third-seeded Sydney FC Women defeated second-seeded Melbourne Victory Women 1-0 and will face the winner of Melbourne City Women vs Western Sydney Women in the W-League Grand Final.

Veronica Latsko's 14th-minute goal from a tidy cross via fullback Ally Green separated the two sides early in the match. Sydney's compact defensive block forced several of Victory's shots to go wide for the remainder of the game, helping them secure their ticket to the final.

W-League semifinal: Melbourne City vs Western Sydney

Melbourne City watched its cross-town rival fall to the feet of a lower-seeded team at home on Friday night and will enter ABD Stadium on Saturday night with one goal in mind; to defend it and reach its fourth final in five years.

City will enter this match-up as a clear favorite being crowned invincible Premiers in February winning 11 and drawing one regular-season matches. A feat that they accomplished in their first W-league season. That time winning all its 12 matches.

Manager Rado Vidosic's team drew the first game of the season. As a result, the single point did not sit well with fans having missed playoffs last season by just a three-goal differential. But they went on to win the remaining 11 fixtures, including a 4-0 win over its upcoming rivals Western Sydney Wanderers FC.

However, six of Vidosic's 11 starters featured in Australia's Women's Olympic Qualifying Asia roster in their 2-1 win against Vietnam on Wednesday. This is something that might be a good thing for Western City Wanderers, who are known to be a rough opponent.

City are known for their goals and defensive soundness. On the other hand, the Wanderers have developed a violent personality on the pitch fouling more than any other team in the league this season (139). Also, no other team was booked more times than Western Sydney (22), and it was the only side to play a part of a match with 10 players on the field due to a red card.
