Westfield W-League final round scenarios

We’re heading into the final round of the Westfield W-League with everything still to play for this weekend.

Out of the four matches to be played in Round 14, three of them will have an effect on the Premiers’ Plate winner as well as the make-up of the top four.

We take a look at the final-round scenarios for each team still in the running to be there on grand final day.


Current position: 1st on 25 points (GD +6)

Best case scenario: Get a draw or win against Canberra United at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday and the Premiership is theirs. Will also claim top spot if Sydney FC fails to beat the Wanderers.

Worse case: Lose to Canberra and drop to second spot if the Sky Blues account for the Wanderers in the Sydney Derby.

Can finish: 1st or 2nd

Brisbane Roar


Current position: 2nd on 22 points (GD +7)

Best case scenario: Knock off the Wanderers on Sunday afternoon then sit back and watch Canberra United do them a favour by beating the Roar in Brisbane.

Worse case: Lose or draw in the Sydney Derby and Newcastle Jets defeat Melbourne City on Saturday.

Can finish: 1st, 2nd or 3rd

Sydney FC


Current position: 3rd on 20 points (GD +8)

Best case scenario: Beat Melbourne City on Saturday night and have Sydney FC fail to beat the Wanderers the next day.

Worse case: Lose to City by four goals or more and they will be leapfrogged by the defending champions.

Can finish: 2nd, 3rd or 4th

Emily van Egmond


Current position: 4th on 17 points (GD +2)

Best case scenario: Beat the Jets by four goals or more in the Hunter on Saturday.

Worse case: Lose heavily or draw against the Jets and Canberra United beat or draw against Brisbane on Sunday.

Can finish: 3rd, 4th or 5th

Melbourne City


Current position: 5th on 16 points (GD 0)

Best case scenario: Beat the league-leading Roar on Sunday afternoon after Melbourne City either lose or draw against the Jets 24 hours earlier.

Worse case: Lose to Roar and their chances are gone. A draw won’t be good enough either if City lose by just one goal against the Jets.

Can finish: 4th or 5th
