For the second year in a row, the Wanderers and Melbourne City will face off on New Years Day with the market picking this as an even contest.
Last year Western Sydney came away with all three points and depending on which City side decides to show up, will either cruise home or be in the fight of their lives.
At some point Oriol Riera is going to have a game where he really takes over and scores a hat-trick with the chances he is getting and this could just be it.
Tip: Melbourne City at $2.50
Correct Score: Melbourne City 1-0 at $8.50
