Gary Emmerson 16 May 2019

Perth Glory and Sydney FC will battle it out to be crowned premiers when they go head-to-head in the 2019 A-League Grand Final at Optus Stadium on Sunday night.

Perth Glory v Sydney FC kicks off at 6.30pm AEST at Optus Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview


It is the top two teams from the A-League season who will contest the Grand Final when Premiers Plate winners Perth Glory host runners-up Sydney FC.

Glory are hosting their first A-League Grand Final having only appeared in one before when losing to Brisbane Roar in 2012.

Can Tony Popovic's side, who needed a penalty shootout to overcome Adelaide United in the semi-final last weekend, win a first-ever A-League title when they come up against three-time champions Sydney FC?

The Sky Blues cruised into the Grand Final after 6-1 demolition of Big Blue rivals Melbourne Victory in the semi-final, and they know what the big occasion is all about having played in four previous deciders and two of the last four.

Steve Corica's Sydney FC had the upper hand in head-to-heads during the regular season, winning two of the three games including inflicting a rare home defeat on Glory in Perth.

In fact, the one defeat to Glory this season was the only time Sydney have lost to Perth in the last 11 meetings.

It is also more than three years since these two sides finished level after 90 minutes with the last draw coming in November 2015, and that makes playing the 90-minute market the option here.

It isn't easy for away sides to win a Grand Final, but Sydney look to be entering prime form and can cause an upset.
