Meanwhile, Victory's sole aim for the remainder of the season is to finish above bottom-of-the-table side Newcastle Jets.
Having failed to maintain their strong form from earlier in the season, supporters of Macarthur have recently been left somewhat disillusioned after losing ground on top spot.
However, the 2-1 win over Victory in their last fixture ended a run of five matches without success, putting the club on par with three other teams locked on 32 points.
While leaders Melbourne City have stormed clear of the chasing pack, Macarthur will now feel that they can finish as the best of the rest, particularly with another game against Victory to come next.
At a time when Susaeta is now second in the Macarthur scoring charts, leading marksman Matt Derbyshire has gone four games without finding the back of the net.
As far as Victory are concerned, interim manager Steve Kean is finding out why his group of players have spent the season at the bottom end of the table.
Despite their last three defeats all coming by a one-goal margin, Kean is not able to take the positives now that Perth Glory have moved seven points clear in 10th position.
With some difficult fixtures on the horizon, the former Blackburn Rovers boss will want to ensure that his side do not fall behind Newcastle Jets over the coming weeks.
Rudy Gestede netted Victory's consolation in the defeat to Glory, ending a run of six matches without a goal.
Macarthur will have to make do without Derbyshire as the veteran forward picked up his fifth yellow card of the season last time out.
Nicholas Ansell will be missing for Victory after the defender was dismissed in the second half against Glory.
Aaron Anderson is in line to come back into the team, but that could prove to be the one change to the starting lineup.
Macarthur possible starting lineup:
Federici; McGing, Milligan, Susnjar; L.Rose, Benat, Martis, Meredith; Susaeta, Najjar, M'Mombwa
Melbourne Victory possible starting lineup:
Acton; Roux, Anderson, Ryan, Broxham; Brimmer, Butterfield; Kamsoba, Kruse, Folami; Gestede
We say: Macarthur 2-1 Melbourne Victory
Having lost out to the same opponents eight days earlier, revenge will be fresh in the minds of Victory's players.
However, we expect the home side to complete the double, potentially replicating the scoreline from the reverse fixture.
