If Western Sydney maintain their recent standard of football in the A-League grand final they will be crowned champions, midfielder Andreu says.

The Wanderers prepare for Sunday's showpiece against Adelaide United with 11 goals in the last three matches, including five in their dramatic semi-final with Brisbane.

Punters are favouring the Reds as victors, with Guillermo Amor's consistent outfit having incredibly lost just once in their last 20 games and won 15 of those.

First-year Spanish import Andreu disagreed.

"Obviously the emotion will be high," he said.

"But the most important thing is trying to play calm, to play like we have been all season.

"If we play like we did in the last games we can get the trophy."

There'll be a distinct Catalan flavour to the contest, with three Spanish players apiece.

Adelaide, coached by Barcelona great Guillermo Amor, have Sergio Cirio, Isaias and Pablo Sanchez in their ranks while the Wanderers boast Andreu, Dimas and Alberto.

Andreu expected a low-scoring tactical battle between two sides similar in style and quality that have drawn three times this season.

"We try to play good football out from behind," the Barcelona youth product said.

"But the most important thing is to win the game.

"Always we want to dominate. The last game against Brisbane was like that, and with Adelaide also.

"But in the end we have to score more often than the opponent."
