Adelaide Utd Preview – Can Adelaide secure top six finish?

With just two matches of the regular A-League season remaining, 6th placed Adelaide United will be desperate to hold onto their top six spot in the Australian top flight with the likes of Newcastle Jets hot on their heels and waiting for a mistake.

Following a worrying four-match losing streak which saw the hosts condemned to defeats against Western Sydney Wanderes, Melbourne Victory, Western United and Newcastle Jets themselves, Adelaide United have since steadied the ship with a three-match unbeaten run which includes vital wins over Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory who sit 4th and 5th respectively.

An overall home record though of 7-0-5 23/22 suggests a fair amount of inconsistency at Coopers Stadium, but goals have been a regular fixture this season at home as nine of Adelaide Utd’s 12 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Sydney FC Preview – Can Sydney rekindle earlier form?

It’s just as well for Sydney FC that the visitors produced a purple-patch of form from the start of November through to the end of February which resulted in Steve Corica’s boys racking up a total of 12 wins from the 13 matches they played during that period, as they head into this clash against Adelaide United having suffered back-to-back defeats.

Sydney still possess an eight-point lead over 2nd placed Melbourne City but momentum has been lost in recent times following losses against Newcastle Jets 2-1 at home and a 2-0 defeat on the road at Melbourne City.

Indeed, Sydney have managed to pick up just two wins from their last seven matches overall so the prospect of an away win here may not be quite so cut-and-dried had this been played back in February; however, goals should feature here as seven of Sydney’s last 11 matches have also seen over 2.5 goals.
