The Western Sydney Wanderers will look to turn Sydney Red & Black this Sunday when they take on cross-city rivals Sydney FC.
With both teams missing out on points in last week’s opening round of the season, three points will already be crucial in such a short competition.
You can watch the game live on ABC ONE and Fox Sports 505 from 2:30pm on Sunday.
Last week’s loss against Perth Glory wasn’t as clear cut as the score line made it appear with two late goals robbing the Wanderers of a deserved point.
Sydney FC are also coming off a loss with a red card to Caitlin Foord contributing to their 2-1 loss to Brisbane Roar. Foord will sit out the derby due to suspension.
The match will be played at Allianz Stadium on Sunday with kick-off at 2:30pm.
