Prediction

Match Preview


Looking to maintain their newly-found top two status, Sydney FC set their sights on another successful night against Adelaide United as the two sides launch Round 21 action on Friday.

It hasn’t been the most prolific month for Sydney to say the least - they’ve lost against Brisbane Roar and drawn with the Central Coast Mariners, but a scrappy 1-0 win over Wellington last week propelled them into second spot on the ladder after Melbourne Victory were held to a draw with City in the derby.

Such is the nature of the A-League, you can rise up the ladder when playing poor football (relatively speaking for Sydney of course), and that’s exactly what’s happened for the Sky Blues over the last few weeks.

Adam La Fondre has had 10 more shots on target than any other player this season - and he was rewarded for his efforts again against Wellington as he fired home the winner in the 65 minute. Will he be on target against for Sydney on Friday night?

Adelaide are another team that haven’t been playing well lately, but find themselves in the top four and looking comfortable for at least a top six place.

Indeed, the Reds are winless in their last three games, losing to the Western Sydney Wanderers and being held to a 0-0 stalemate against the Newcastle Jets last week. In fact, there last win was that famous 4-3 victory over Brisbane Roar, where they came back from 3-0 down after the Roar were reduced to nine men.

Truth be told, both of these teams aren’t impressing at the moment, but at home, you’ve got to give the edge to Sydney. They’ve been dominant over Adelaide in these fixtures over the years, and with the Reds struggling to get on the scoresheet in Newcastle, I’m not sure they can manage it against a much better team and defence. Expect Sydney to grind out another scrappy win.
