Adelaide United will host Sydney FC at Coopers Stadium on Saturday night in what is arguably the match of the weekend in the A-League.
The third-placed Adelaide return home after a 1-0 victory over their arch-rivals Melbourne Victory with thanks to a Craig Goodwin strike late in the first half. United will need to overcome their poor recent history against the Sky Blues, having won just once in their past six meetings.
Sydney FC, who sit in second place on the A-League table, took out the Sydney Derby last weekend when beating the Wanderers 1-0 after Bobo put them ahead in the second half. The Sky Blues look to be timing their run perfectly, having won four of their past six matches in the league.
The hosts are outsiders in this matchup, with online bookmakers offering $3.05 for Adelaide to upstage the title favourites. Sydney FC, meanwhile, are $2.20 to continue their winning form en route to another promising finals campaign.
Adelaide United vs Sydney FC match analysis
Sydney currently have a three-point cushion over Adelaide on the A-League ladder. Although Melbourne City have already claimed the premier’s plate, Saturday night’s matchup still has plenty of implications.
With both teams having two games left in the regular season, three points here will be imperative for Adelaide in particular. Sydney boast a far superior goal difference to United, so they wish to sneak into second place, Carl Veart’s side will need to win this weekend and hope the Sky Blues slip up against the Brisbane Roar in their final fixture.
Adelaide v Sydney FC betting predictions
Sydney FC to win
The reigning premiers are timing their run perfectly, and they should have no issue breaking down an Adelaide defence that has been tough to get through in recent weeks. Sydney have an attacking line-up which plenty of teams in the league would be envious of, and we expect them to make the most of their opportunities on Saturday night.
Sydney FC to win
Under 2.5 goals
Two of the last three matchups between these sides have gone under 2.5 goals, it could be a similar story this weekend. Adelaide have kept a clean sheet in each of their previous three home games, but we do expect Sydney to break that streak in a low-scoring affair.
Under 2.5 goals
Same game multi: 3 legs @ $11.03
Sydney FC are one of the form teams in the league, and with a finals campaign just around the corner, we expect them to keep that momentum going with a win against Adelaide. Led by Bobo, Kosta Barbarouses and Adam Le Fondre up front, with Alex Wilkinson, Ryan McGowan and Rhyan Grant in defence, Sydney should be sewing up second spot with a 1-0 win.
