Perth Glory vs Sydney: Preview and Predictions

Perth Glory vs Sydney
Australia – A-League
Date: Thursday, 29 March 2018
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK
Venue: nib Stadium (Perth).

Perth Glory look to have caught the last train in an attempt to reach the playoffs spots. They are just a single point below Western Sydney Wanderers in sixth place after a strong streak of three wins and a draw in last four league affairs. The problem is, however, that there are three games left to play until the end of the season, and the Glory need to play the top two sides in two following fixtures.

Can Kenny Lowe inspire a miracle and lead his side towards a massive upset on Thursday when Perth are set to host the reigning champions Sydney? The visitors have proven out to be vulnerable after all losing two in a row before bouncing back last time out 1-2 away at Central Cost Mariners. The Sky Blues are untouchable being eight points clear at the top of the A-League standing and they no doubts have the most talented squad in the competition.

It was the substitute striker Matt Simon who has brought Sydney three points in Gosford netting the match-winner late in the stoppage time. Interestingly, it was his first goal of the season. Bobo, who is league’s top scorer with 22 goals in 24 appearances, has not found the net in last three affairs and he will no doubts be highly motivated to regain the much needed confidence ahead of the playoffs.

Perth Glory vs Sydney: Head-to-head

Sydney have entirely dominated this match-up winning 24 and losing 9 of 42 encounters with the Glory.

The Sky Blues have won each of last eight encounters against Perth.

The hosts certainly still remember the painful 6-0 defeat they’ve suffered in late-December last year at Allianz Stadium.

The visitors are in a sort of crisis, while Kenny Lowe’s men have won four on the bounce in front of the home crowd.
