Prediction

Match Preview

It’s turning into another dominant A-League season for Sydney as they look to increase their lead at the top of the table when they face Adelaide at home on Saturday night.

With seven wins from their last eight games, Sydney have once again set the benchmark as they look to claim back-to-back premierships in 2020.

Nine points ahead of second-placed Melbourne City, Sydney are already runaway leaders and it would take a big collapse for Steve Corica’s side to let slip of the minor premiership.

Even playing with 10 men didn’t weaken the Sky Blues in their last outing as they came from a goal down to conquer City 2-1.

Adelaide meanwhile have suffered a dip in form since having the bye in Round 10, slumping to consecutive losses against the Mariners and Wanderers.

The Reds had won five of their six matches heading into the bye, but it seems the week off squashed all of their momentum.

Slipping to fifth on the ladder as a result, Adelaide are now in a dogfight with a bunch of teams hanging around the lower echelons of the six.

Winless since 2016 against Sydney, it’s tough to see Adelaide snapping their losing run on Saturday night at Jubilee. The Sky Blues are rolling and should emerge triumphant once more.
