Sydney FC vs Adelaide United by Sors

The hosts, who will play at this stage of the playoffs for the first time since 2010 (when Sydney FC actually won its last league title), finished the regular season in a good shape, as this team won four of its last five games and scored twelve goals in this period (4-0-1 12/5).


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.
