Australia Cup Preview: Floreat Athena v Wanderers

Floreat Athena take on Western Sydney Wanderers at Kingsway Reserve, with their eyes set on causing the Wanderers another upset in the Cup.

The team have been struggling in the NPL WA in 2023 sitting just three points clear of last place.

Athena were involved in tight matches on their route to the Final Rounds, edging through by a single goal on three out of four occasions.

They’ll be looking to bounce back from their most recent defeat in the league with the welcome distraction of the Cup.

Western Sydney will want a fast start to this season as they build up for the new ALM campaign, having made the finals last season.

The Wanderers will be hoping to make a bigger impression in the Australian Cup than in recent years as they have failed to make the quarter finals since 2019.

Floreat Athena face a tough task here, but the Wanderers have been susceptible to an upset in the past.
