Sydney FC vs Perth Glory: Predictions
These are the two highest scoring teams this season thus far so we expect some goals in this fixture. Sydney FC cannot do much wrong at the moment as their squad is currently fit and healthy and have the best depth of any squad in this league.
Perth Glory looks like the team that can match the Sky Blues in every position but they need to bring the intensity early. Sydney did start slow as they conceded first last game so that is somewhere Perth can exploit.
However, Perth have this season conceded a few goals and with the likes of Bobo, Alex Brosque and Filip Holosko up front, they could prove to be an attacking threat.
There should be goals and will be a great contest but Sydney should have enough depth to come away with a victory and continue their unbeaten start to this season.
