Perth Glory vs Adelaide United
A-League – Playoff
Date: Friday, 10th May 2019
Kick-off at 11.30 UK/ 12.30 CET
Venue: HBF Park (Perth).
Adelaide held on to pass the test of the elimination finals. And it was really worthy of a final too. Both teams went back and forth the whole ninety minutes of regular time, before the game passed on to the extra half an hour.
Even then, Melbourne, their opposite number was not ready to let go. But the home team, at the end of an intense two hours of running, broke the visitors’ hearts with a sole goal, and the winner.
Perth finished the topper of the season in the A-League, and by quite a distance. They were the best team in almost every major statistic. The team won the most matches, lost less than half of any other squad, scored the most, and conceded the least.

Perth Glory vs Adelaide United Prediction
Perth has been the best team in the country this whole season, and the stats leave no doubt even to the sternest of doubters. They scored 56 goals from their regular season, while only another team managed to touch the 50-mark. The team posted more than double the goal difference of any other squad.
They were also unbeaten in 12 of their last 14 home ties and won five of their last six as well. They scored two or more goals in six of their last nine home fixtures and kept clean sheets in six of their last seven attempts at home. Since the team has the home advantage this weekend, they have a massive upper hand over the visitors, who were winless in five of their last seven road trips.
Finally, Perth recorded five of the last seven h2h wins, and scored two or more goals in two of the last three such encounters, while Adelaide failed to net a single goal in the last three ties. As such, expect a dominating performance from the hosts.
