Sydney FC vs Adelaide United Prediction
Sydney had taken on one of the best teams in the league the last match-day, Melbourne City. Still, the reigning champions managed to record a 2-1 scoreline, and thus the victory as well.
In the meantime, Adelaide were at home, and still lost against the WS Wanderers. The scorecard had read 2-3 at the end of the ninety minutes.
In regards to result this Saturday, Sydney are the clear-cut favorites. They are already the current title-holders, and are en route to defend their crown.
They are at the top of the table, and have recorded 28 points from their 11 fixtures. This means, they have dropped a total of just five points over the course of the season. Keep note that the next best return by a team is just 19 points.
Sydney have also scored the most number of goals, and conceded the least as well. At home, they hold a 100% winning record, and have once again scored the most, and conceded the least. It deserves mentioning that they have scored more than three times the goals they conceded, in front of the home crowd.
On the other hand, Adelaide lost three of their last four overall match-ups, and two of their prior four on the road.
Finally, Sydney are on a three-game winning run against this rival, and have conceded just two goals in total from the previous eight encounters at this venue combined.
By all means, expect the top-tier Sydney to keep their momentum going on with a comfortable win at home this weekend.
