Sydney Preview – Can Sydney pick up where they left off?

An impressive sequence of results in the Australian A-League saw Sydney FC lose just one of their 17 matches before the enforced break in the domestic season which had helped Sydney to the summit of the A-League and a useful eight-point cushion above their nearest rivals, 2nd placed Melbourne City.

That rare defeat came in the shape of their local Sydney derby against Western Sydney Wanderers, but aside from that and an earlier loss away from home to the same opponents back in October last year, Sydney have been virtually unbeatable.

13 of Sydney’s last 17 matches ended up in wins for Friday’s hosts while on home turf, Steve Corica’s boys have lost just one of their previous 17 matches also within an impressive home record which stands at 8-1-1 19/7, and includes winning seven of their last 10 matches with their chief destroyers being strikers Le Fondre (17 goals) and Barbarouses (8 goals).

Our betting suggestion:

Wellington Phoenix Preview – Can Wellington put pressure on Melbourne City?

Friday evening’s visitors, Wellington Phoenix, occupy 3rd place on the A-League ladder and just four points adrift of 2nd placed Melbourne City prior to this important clash across the ditch in Sydney, as the visitors look to pick up a fifth league win on the trot.

Victories over Melbourne City, Western United and Melbourne Victory (at home) along with a 3-1 win away at Central Coast Mariners before the extended break had helped the New Zealand outfit up into 3rd spot and it’ll be interesting to see if they can continue their momentum after such a lengthy break in proceedings.

In addition, Wellington Phoenix have never really been renowned travellers in the A-League and the bigger picture underlines this as The Phoenix have managed to pick up just nine wins from their last 46 matches on the road which is a pretty poor record indeed, along with losing six of their last eight encounters against Sydney FC.
