Western United scored a huge win in its Elimination Final on Saturday, with Aleksandar Prijovic’s early strike securing the ideal boost of confidence and momentum heading into the rest of the post-season.
The Green and Black ended the regular season without a win in the last three matches but has overall maintained a strong run of form ever since the turn of the year.
John Aloisi’s side will meet its match in Melbourne Victory, though, as they come into the match as the most in-form side in the competition.
Tony Popovic’s men went unbeaten in the final 15 matches of the season to rise to second on the table, but United will fancy its chances of matching its rivals on the pitch.
Western United and Melbourne Victory have had some classic battles in the past, including three tight affairs already this season.
The last meeting ended in a 1-1 draw as Victory netted a late equaliser but United fell to defeat in each of the three clashes before that.
The Green and Black had previously held the wood over its rivals with four wins and a draw in the first five fixtures between the pair.
Aloisi will be monitoring the fitness of a few first-team players coming into the clash and will hopeful of some key returns to the side.
Rene Krhin will need to be assessed after he was substituted against Wellington, while the likes of Dylan Pierias and Adisu Bayew will be looking to edge closer towards a return.
United vice-captain Josh Risdon made his return with 20 minutes off the bench and will be hoping to make his way into the starting line-up in this one.
