Sydney FC look to continue their dominant record over Perth Glory when the two sides clash in a Grand Final rematch on Saturday night in A-League Round 7 action.

Perth vs Sydney kicks off at 9.45pm AEDT at HBF Park. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


Sydney have won 11 of their last 12 matches against Perth as the reigning premiers and beaten grand finalists renew their rivalry on Saturday night.

It’s been a typically strong start to the season by Sydney, with Steve Corica’s side currently occupying second spot on the ladder after a 4-1 win over Newcastle and 2-1 come-from-behind triumph over Victory either side of a bye.

The Sky Blues have the best goal difference in the competition and have only lost one of their first six matches - and that came in the derby against Western Sydney at Bankwest.

Sydney showed great resilience last week as Adam Le Fondre and Kosta Barbarouses netted twice within seven minutes in the second half to conquer Victory.



Can they continue their blistering run of form against Perth?

Glory have put together an up-and-down start to the season, winning just one game but also suffering only one defeat, with Tony Popovic’s side drawing three other games to hold sixth position on the ladder.

It’s safe to say Perth haven’t really been able to get going so far this season, and it certainly doesn’t get any easier this week. Glory should be fresh after receiving the bye last week, with their last game resulting in a 1-1 draw away to Newcastle a fortnight ago.

As mentioned, Glory have struggled significantly against Sydney, losing 11 of their last 12 encounters, including last season’s Grand Final. With Sydney firing and Perth yet to hit their stride, it’s hard to see a different outcome this time around.

Match Odds


Sydney FC - $2.63
Perth Glory - $2.70
Draw - $3.50

Match Odds


  • Sydney have won 11 of their last 12 meetings
  • Glory haven’t scored in their last two games against Sydney
  • Perth are trying to avoid going winless in their last four games on home soil for the first time since 2015
