The reigning champions are one game away from reaching the Grand Final once again but Adelaide United will be boosted by their road win in Brisbane in last week’s elimination final.

Sydney Preview – Will Syndey’s big game experience come to the fore as they look to continue their title defence?

This is familiar territory for Sydney FC as they prepare for what will be a fifth straight semi-final. They have been dominant over the last few years and that experience is an obvious advantage as they look ahead to Saturday’s game. The club know how to win when the get here as well having gone on to win the final itself in three of the last four years and they will be hoping to extend that record by winning what would be their sixth title overall.

Steve Corica has been responsible for two of those (2018/29 and 2019/20) and will be looking to make history by becoming the first team to win three straight titles.


Our betting prediction
Sydney to win to nil

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 15 June)

Sydney could barely be in better form either having won their last five matches during the regular season. That was enough to guarantee a home semi-final after finishing second behind Melbourne City. They will now be hoping to take that form into this knockout match. The champions have also had the benefit of a two week break since their last game, a 2-0 win in Brisbane.

Perhaps most important for Sydney and most worrying for any opponents is they have kept four clean sheets in that run of five wins which is ominous for the rest.

Adelaide United Preview – Will Adelaide provide an upset as they look to reach final for the first time since 2016?

Adelaide last made it to this stage back in 2019 when they lost on penalties to eventual runners up Perth Glory. The last time they made it to the final itself was 2016 – the year they won their first and only title. They may not have been amongst the favourites to go all the way again but confidence will be increasing within the camp and they now find themselves just one game away from the final itself.

Adelaide seen off Brisbane 2-1 in the elimination final last week with the well travelled Tom Juric scoring a first half double to secure their passage.

Adelaide finished fifth in the league this season with an eight point deficit between themselves and their next opponents. Regular season positions are not all that important in these playoff matches, it’s the experience and playing on the road which United will have to overcome if they are to progress.

Their form away from home was very poor heading into the last couple of weeks of the season but a win against Melbourne Victory and then that huge success in Brisbane has at least restored some confidence having went five without a win on their travels.

Sydney vs Adelaide United Betting Advice

One of these teams will progress to the Grand Final next week to face Melbourne City or Macarthur. The home team are favourites but the meetings between Sydney and Adelaide have been shared evenly with one win each and a draw. Adelaide will have to get their first win away to Sydney in five years, though, if their season is not to come to an end on Saturday.


Key Facts – Sydney vs Adelaide United Betting Tip

  • Sydney finished second during the regular season but have won their last five games
  • Adelaide have been champions just once in their history, that triumph coming in season 2015/16
  • The teams won one game each and drew the other in the head to head record during the regular season


I noted there is something ominous about the way Sydney are going at the moment. This is the stage of the season they come into their own. The experience and know how to win these games is important. And that will see them over the line at the weekend.
