Sydney FC vs Adelaide United by Sors
Sydney FC is a team, whose style of play is based on open and attacking football, which is not a surprise, given the fact that the hosts can count on players like Marc Janko (forw. / 16 goals), Shane Smeltz (forw. / 8 goals), Alex Brosque (forw. / 7 goals), Bernie Ibini-Isei (forw. / 6 goals), etc.
On the other hand, there is something else that also makes impression: this team feels more comfortable when playing away from home (10-4-0 33/14), while the hosts had problems in most of their previous games on this stadium, having recorded only four wins in those thirteen encounters (4-4-5 19/21).
The guests took advantage from those weaknesses three times this season: once at the quarter-finals of FAA Cup (3-1 a.e.t.) and twice in the league (3-0 and 1-0).
Adelaide United is team with a solid defense, flexible midfield and very experienced players up front in the face of Marcelo Carrusca (midfielder / 7 goals), Bruce Djite (forw. / 6 goals), Sergio Cirio (forw. / 7 goals) and Pablo Sanchez (forw. / 8 goals), for whom doesn’t matter whether playing at home or away.
Sydney FC has a slight advantage due to home court advantage, but I think that the hosts will have problems against Adelaide United and in my view the winner from this match will be determined after extra time or even after penalty shoot-out.
Sasa Ognenovski (d / 6+1), Ali Abbas (m / 7+0), Nick Carle (m / 4+0), George Blackwood (f / 3+0) and Corey Gameiro (f / 5+2) will miss this match for the home team, while Jordan Elsey (d / 0+0) is out for Adelaide United.
