MLC-W vs SYD-W Dream11: It's “The FIxture” of the Westfield W-League 2020 as Melbourne City FC Women meet Sydney FC Women in the grand final at AAMI Park on Saturday morning (IST). This matchup is a fitting end to the season which has produced some remarkable moments, for both the teams have been cut above than the rest for the majority of the season, and not to mention that these two teams are also the tournament's most successful sides, having won the competition three times each in the past.
Melbourne City FC Women are the only team to remain undefeated throughout the whole regular-season, having won 12 times and drawing the other match. They also scored 32 times in those 13 games and conceded a meagre five times. Needless to say, Melbourne City have been near-about perfect this season, and are the team to beat going into the final.
Melbourne wrapped up the Premiership with one round to spare following a 4-0 win over Western Sydney Wanderers. Both the teams met again in the semi-final where Melbourne were again untouchable and relentless, winning 5-1 to set-up the final date with Sydney.
Sydney FC, on the other hand, have had a rollercoaster season, with some convincing wins, and odd days where they came out second-best. But they are an experienced side, that knows how to embrace the big moments. It was clear in the semi-final where they suffered in the game and yet came out 1-0 victors against Melbourne Victory to play in yet another final.

Melbourne City FC Women Team News:
Melbourne City FC Women key players:
Emily van Egmond: Missed two golden chances in the final round of the regular-season which, if she had converted, would have made her the leading goal scorer in a single campaign with eight goals. The 26-year-old scored seven times in the round-robin, and also scored in the semi-final.
Rebekah Stott: Yup, you may find her at the back, but she is one of the vital cogs in this team. Her towering presence at the back can out off any attacker, but it's not her mere presence which makes her a very good player, but her reading of the game and the calmness with which she goes about her business. The 26-year-old New Zealander scored one goal, made 23 tackles, 20 clearances, six blocks and 23 interceptions this season.
Ellie Carpenter: Making the tight noise in the Australian Women football circle. At only 19 years, she has become an indispensable part of this team. She was phenomenal in the semifinal. Goals: 02. Assists: 04.
