A-League Round 24 Fixtures and Tips - Sky Blues and Victory clash in Big Blue

Gary Emmerson 1 Apr 2019

Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory clash in the latest Big Blue at Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday in a game that could go a long way to deciding a place in the top two.

A 3-1 win over Brisbane Roar moved Sydney FC to within six point of ladder leaders Perth Glory, who in turn lost 2-0 at home to Melbourne Victory. That result kept Victory seven points adfrift of the leaders.

With four games left, both sides will now be eyeing up a possible Premiers Plate, but Saturday's Big Blue showdown could end the hopes of one while also putting a dent in the top two aspirations at the same time.

Glory, meanwhile, will not be in action until a day later when they bid to bounce back and move a step closer to the minor premiership when they visit bottom side Central Coast Mariners, who were beaten 1-0 by Adelaide United last weekend, in Gosford.

The Round 24 action begins with a meeting between sixth-placed Melbourne City, who remain seven points clear of Newcastle Jets in the race for the finals spots despite last week's 3-0 defeat at Western Sydney Wanderers, and second-from-bottom Brisbane Roar at AAMI Park on Friday night.

The Jets face eighth-placed Western Sydney in the early game on Saturday night at McDonald Jones Stadium with both sides looking increasingly likely to miss out on the finals.

On Sunday it is fifth plays fourth as Adelaide United host Wellington Phoenix, who smashed the Jets 4-1 at home in Round 23, at Coopers Stadium with both looking to secure a home final with a top four finish.
