Adelaide United Preview – Can Adelaide find what would just be a second home win of the season?

Adelaide currently sit in third place in the table but it may not be as encouraging as that sounds. For a start, no team has played more than them and the 10 games they have played is more than any other in the current top five. And a loss in this weekend could see them drop to as low as sixth which indicates just how compact the top half of the table is in the early stages of the season.

Adelaide’s biggest problem so far is the number of draws they have accumulated – they have shared the spoils in exactly half their matches.

Adelaide United win/BTTS
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Thursday 3 February)

They come into this game on a positive run, though, and looking to continue it. It is now unbeaten in five in the league which is a star improvement. It took Adelaide until their sixth game to find a first win. Since the victory over Wellington (their only home win incidentally) they have taken 11 points from a possible 15. Contrast that with picking up just three from the same number of games.

Craig Goodwin has enjoyed a positive start to the season. He’s hit five in his last four matches in the A-League, looking to better his return of eight from the previous season.

Sydney FC Preview – Will Sydney follow up last weekend’s win to go above their opponents in league?

Syndey are not used to losing when they reach the Grand Final but that was the case last season as they went down 3-1 to Melbourne City. They have reached the showpiece occasion in each of the last five years, successful in three of them. Coach Steve Corcica will be hoping to use that disappointment as motivation for his players but it has been an inconsistent start to the campaign.

Sydney are currently sixth having played the same number of matches as their opponents. That said, a win here would put them level on points with the current leaders so there is plenty of scope for climbing the table in the coming weeks.

Last weekend’s win at home to Central Coast Mariners was their first in four games, although it is not just one defeat in their last six in the league. On their travels the only success so far came against Macarthur. Sydney have taken five points from four games on the road this term – conceding seven and scoring six.

Not normally known for his goal scoring ability, midfielder Anthony Caceres has four to his name already. It means it is his best return in his career and more league goals than in his last five seasons combined.

Adelaide United vs Sydney FC United Betting Advice

Neither coach will be overly happy with how this season has went as a whole but there’s no doubt Adelaide come into this game in better form as they look for a fourth win in six. It isn’t a fixture they have excelled in in recent times, though, with just one win in their last nine meetings against Sydney, who have won six of those clashes.

The added motivation for any potential victor is three points would take them top until the rest of the weekend action kicks off.


Key Facts –  Adelaide United vs Sydney FC Betting Tip

  • Adelaide United’s only win at home this season was a 4-0 success against Wellington Phoenix
  • Sydney have taken five points from their first four away games of the season
  • The last nine meetings between the two have seen Adelaide win just once, and Sydney on six occasions


Backing against Sydney is  not normally sensible considering how dominant they have been in recent years but Adelaide are improving and there has been enough issues with Sydney in the early part of the season to suggest they are not going to be the same force.
