Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory
Australia A-League – Season 2017/18
Date: Friday, 20th October 2017
Kick-off at 9:50 UK/ 10:50 CET
Venue: Coopers Stadium (Adelaide).

Adelaide United continue to impress in the new A-League season. They came from behind to draw Wellington Phoenix in their season opener. While on match-day 2 it was an even better thriller as two late goals sunk a wasteful Brisbane Roar 2-1. Four points from two away games and the new manager Marco Kurz cannot wish for a better start to his life down under.
