[plt-scheme] Problem with define-syntax

Good day

I miss something which is surely basic. 
How can I define a macro that will match a list ? 
Why the following is not working ? 

(define-syntax testListe
  (syntax-rules ()
    [(_ (1 3)) #t]
    [(_ xxx) #f])) 

(define x '(1 3))
(testListe  x) 

Thank you
