4 reasons to watch the Westfield W-League this weekend

It's Round 3 of the Westfield W-League with some eye-catching match-ups in store.

Here are your four reasons to watch the weekend's action...

CAN REDS STOP RED-HOT GLORY?

Perth Glory have rocketed out of the starting blocks, posting back-to-back 4-1 wins to start the new campaign.

It took Westfield Matildas star Sam Kerr just three minutes to open her account for the season, but it's US star Rachel Hill who's overshadowed her more illustrious team-mate, scoring five goals in the first two games.

Glory open the weekend against Adelaide United on Friday as they look to further flex their muscles at Marden.

HOW WILL BRISBANE BOUNCE BACK?

The Roar were on the receiving end against Glory last Sunday, going down 4-1 at home against a rampant Perth side.

However, Brisbane showed their quality on opening weekend with a 3-1 win at Sydney FC.

They'll look to repeat the dose against a buoyant Western Sydney Wanderers, who needed an injury-time goal to chalk up their first win of the season against Adelaide last weekend.

Wanderers are hoping to make it two from two at Marconi Stadium on Friday night.

WHO CLIMBS FROM THE CELLAR?

Canberra United and Sydney FC are stalled in the starting blocks.

Both sides are without a point after two rounds (although Canberra have played only once) and have scored just two goals between them.

The two meet at McKellar Park on Sunday afternoon, both desperate to get their seasons up and running.

ARE THE JETS THE REAL DEAL?

The Newcastle Jets have emulated their men's side by starting the season in impressive fashion.

Back-to-back victories and just one goal conceded have the side tucked into second place and looking every inch a competition dark horse.

They'll get a real litmus test this Sunday when they visit defending champions Melbourne City, fresh from their derby win over Victory last time out.

A W-League blockbuster awaits fans at AAMI Park.
