Sydney FC vs Perth Glory: Predictions
Winner of this match will move into the grand-final so there are no second chances for either team therefore, they need to make it count now.
Sydney have been the dominant team during the home and away season but they need to get to that level again to make in into the grand-final. They did have the week off which will help the side physically but it could potentially hinder their form given they didn’t play last week.
Perth showed last week that they are in great from at the right time and they could scare the Sky Blues. A couple of their players have indicated in interviews that they are ready for Sydney and that finals is a different ball game so it seems like their team is mentally ready for the challenge.
Key for this match will be which team can bring the intensity the longest and whichever team can produce that both attackingly and defensively will most likely get the win.
The Glory will compete well and will push the home side to the limit but the Sky Blues should prevail and get a spot in the grand-final.
Week off will benefit Sydney FC and in front of a home crowd, they should do enough to get the win against Perth Glory.
