Perth Glory v Adelaide United A-League Semi-Final Tips, Predictions and Preview - Glory set for the Grand Final

Minor premiers Perth Glory will look to seal at spot in the A-League Grand Final when they face Adelaide United in the first semi-final at HBF Park on Friday night.

Adelaide v Melbourne kicks off at 8.30pm AEST at HBF Park. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview


Adelaide United travel to Perth just five days after playing 120 minutes against Melbourne City in the Elimination Final, and they take on a Glory side that go into the semi-final on a massive high and fresh off a weekend off.

Only twice in A-League history has the Premiership winner not made the Grand Final, the first season with Adelaide United and last year with Sydney FC, so the numbers certainly favour the Glory to advance here after winning the Premiers Plate.

During the regular season, Adelaide did not score a single goal against Perth in three games - suffering two 2-0 defeats at Coopers Stadium and claiming a point from a 0-0 draw at HBF Park.

They did not exactly look too threatening against City in the Elimination Final, needing a 119th minute strike from Ben Halloran to eventually scraped into the semi-finals.

Reds coach Marco Kurz has always preached fitness for his team and they can take it to Perth, but if the Glory get on the scoreboard early this could get ugly.

This one looks set for a Perth win, a clean sheet and the Glory locking in a home grand final against either Sydney FC or Melbourne Victory.
