Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory square off in a top-of-the-table showdown in the pick of the A-League Round 18 matches this upcoming weekend.

Glory and Victory clash on Sunday at AAMI Park with both sides looking to back up last-start wins, with Perth easing past Wellington 3-0 and Victory coming from two goals down to edge the bottom-placed Mariners 3-2 in Gosford. Glory currently hold a four-point lead at the top of the ladder, and could go seven points clear with a win.

Round 18 kicks off in the Hunter as Newcastle Jets play host to Wellington Phoenix on Thursday night. It’s a crucial game for both teams - a win for Newcastle could see them close the gap to five points on Wellington in sixth, but a victory for the Kiwi club would propel them 11 points clear, making it near-impossible for the Jets to catch them.

After blowing a 3-0 lead against Adelaide last week, Brisbane Roar are now confronted with the challenge of Sydney FC at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night. Brisbane somehow went down 4-3 in the 97th minute to Adelaide last week, while Sydney cruised to a 2-0 home win over Melbourne City in their last outing.

Western Sydney Wanderers and Central Coast Mariners then aim to register a rare win this season when the struggling sides meet on Saturday at Spotless Stadium. The Wanderers were throttled 5-1 by the Jets last week, while the Mariners failed to capitalise on a 2-0 lead over Victory, going on to lose 3-2.

Adelaide United will be determined to continue their momentum from their stunning comeback against Brisbane when they face Melbourne City at AAMI Park on Saturday night. Adelaide leapfrogged City into fourth courtesy of their win last week and can increase that gap even more with another victory in Round 18.
