Sydney vs Adelaide United
Australia – A-League
Date: Sunday, 8 April 2018
Kick-Off at 10:00 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Sydney).
The reigning champions have shown class once again, beating the in-form Perth Glory side 2-3 on the road last time out. Even though the Glory entered that match in high spirits, Sydney bagged three quick goals to remove all doubts about the winner and boost up the confidence ahead of the playoffs ties.
League’s top scorer Bobo has confirmed the amazing spell of form in this term of the competition by netting a brace, while the Polish midfielder Adrian Mierzejewski was the one who opened the scoring last weekend. This win was backed up on Tuesday when Sydney demolished Suwon Bluewings 1-4 in Korea Republic to regain the hope for the second-place finish in the Group H of the AFC Champions League.
We thus have to see Sydney as favourites in Sunday’s affair with Adelaide united even though the match has a much greater significance for the visitors. The Sky Blues have already secured the top spot at the end of the regular season, while Adelaide sit fifth and a win here might help them reach the fourth place at the end of the campaign.
The visitors have been red-hot in the final third recently, bagging eight goals in back-to-back wins over Newcastle Jets and Wellington Phoenix.
