Adelaide United Preview – Can faltering Adelaide boost their playoff hopes with just a second win in eight games?

It’s starting to get very nervous for Adelaide and their recently appointed coach Carl Veart. What seemed like a near certain playoff position at the beginning of the year is now much closer than they would have anticipated. United are in sixth spot just now which is the last position which gets a team into the A-League post season.

Western United – who have two games in hand and won their last three – sit just one point behind them and lead the chasing pack vying to reach the playoffs.

Our betting prediction:
Bruno Fornaroli to score in 90 minutes

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 28 July)


Adelaide’s season has been the epitome of inconsistency. Their 23 league games so far have seen them win 10, lose 12 and draw just one game. It’s all or nothing for United and they will have to hope they can win at least two of their final three games to ensure they finish in the top six.

Unsurprisingly with a record like that, Adelaide are the league’s entertainers. Their average goals per game of 3.43 is the highest in the league. That equates to 36 goals for and 43 conceded. The latter of those is the second highest in the league with only bottom club Central Coast Mariners having a worse record.


Perth Glory Preview – Will Glory take a big step towards securing a top six spot with a first away win in five?

Last year’s beaten Premiership finalists have work of their own to do in order to confirm their playoff spot. Perth are in a stronger position than their opponents being three points ahead and also having a game in hand. But their form will be causing some concern for coach Tony Popovic. Glory have won just one of their last six A-League games which has just created this uncertainty.

Their most recent game was a 2-1 loss at home to Wellington Phoenix. That was their second loss in three home games, both have which have come against teams above them in the table It doesn’t bode well should they finish in the top six and compete in the playoffs.

Popovic will be confident that his team can find the points they require with the games they have left. Glory play two of the current bottom three after this before finishing at home to Western United which could yet be a massive game in the race for the playoffs.

There will be no fears about travelling to face Adelaide either considering how resilient Perth have been on their travels this season. Glory have lost just two of their 11 away matches, a record only bettered by leaders Sydney FC.

Adelaide United vs Perth Glory Betting Advice

It was an emphatic win for Glory when the teams met in Perth earlier in the season and they will be looking to do the double over their opponents. Should they do that then it’s hard to see them not making the top six but a defeat would have them looking over their shoulders ahead of their final three games.

Adelaide know that anything less than a win and they are handing the initiative to the teams below them in the race for sixth.
