In this week-s stat attack we take a look at all the facts and numbers surrounding our clash against the Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday evening at AAMI Park.
Last week Melbourne Heart FC walked away from Coopers Stadium with a point following a 2-2 draw against Adelaide United, while the Wanderers drew 1-1 at home with Brisbane Roar.
The last time these two sides met it ended in a 1-1 draw at Pirtek Stadium, with Aaron Mooy cancelling out David Williams opener.
The Wanderers will be looking to hold on to second spot on the table but Melbourne Heart are determined to give retiring Club Captain Harry Kewell the best send-off possible.
