Adelaide United vs Sydney FC
Australia – A-League
Date: Thursday, 6 August 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: ANZ Stadium (Sydney).
With just three more games remaining in the regular season of the campaign, Adelaide cannot afford to lose points or it will affect their position in the chance for the play-offs.
Sydney FC is the only team that has confirmed their berth in the playoffs, and that too straight to the semi-finals as they are leading the table. So, the visitors might be off the pressure and it has to be noted that they have lost the last two games in the schedule.
Losing to Newcastle Jets at home with a 1-2 scoreline and later a 2-0 clean sheet loss on the road to Melbourne City in the last game is not the type of Sydney FC that we have seen through the league.
Adelaide has been unbeaten in the last three matches with the remaining three contingents in the race for the playoffs within the top 6 spots in the table. They will visit after a 5-3 win at home against Perth Glory in the league.

Adelaide United vs Sydney FC Prediction
The three-game unbeaten streak and coming in the back of a massive 5-3 win in the league will probably have the Adelaide players in cloud nine prior to the upcoming match.
In their h2h clashes, the Reds have lost in the last attempt at home to a narrow lead. Besides, Sydney FC will visit on the back of two consecutive losses in the schedule.
It cannot be said that the host doesn’t stand a chance against the table toppers. So, a double chance favoring Adelaide United will be a suitable option for the encounter.
Furthermore, both teams have scored in four of their last five h2h meetings. And in the league, both their scoring average is over 2 goals per match. So, BTTS will be the best bet for the punters.
