Perth Glory vs Sydney FC
Australia – A-League Playoff
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 09.30 UK/ 10.30 CET
Venue: Optus Stadium (Perth).
After all the playoffs formality, at the end of the day, it’s the first two teams in league standings that are taking on each other for the title. Perth really was a revelation this season in the A-League, and they finished so far ahead of the rest in the points table. They scored the most number of goals, conceded the least, and recorded a GD that was double better than any other squad.
Sydney used to have the upper hand against this team in h2h ties, but this time around, that just might not count enough. Also, their recent struggles in away matches might be called to question, especially with the ominous form of Perth at home.
Perth Glory vs Sydney FC Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the last four matches had goals from both teams.
- The last three ties at this venue had the same stat as well.
- Perth won the last time these two met at this stadium.
- Sydney has a scoring streak going on for the last 13 ties in a row.
Perth Glory vs Sydney FC Prediction
Perth was by quite a margin the best team in the competition during the regular season. They finished atop the table with an eight-point lead. Every other squad had lost more than double than that of Perth, they had scored more goals than anyone, conceded fewer than anyone else, and posted a Goal Difference that was more than two times better than any other team.
On top of that, Sydney lost two of their last three matches, was winless in five of their last seven and avoided a win in eight of their last eleven games on the road. As things stand, Perth should come out the winner of this encounter. They had won four of their last five fixtures and were unbeaten in 24 of their last 27. At home, they won 11 of their last 14 appearances.
Going on, this is a one-off game for the title, and Sydney is a fierce competitor. Also, they have a scoring streak going on against Perth for the last 13 matches. They had also registered 21 of the last 26 wins against Perth. By all means, expect both teams to find the back of the net.
