Adelaide United vs Sydney: Preview and Prediction

Sydney have taken just one point from their last three Australia. A League matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Sydney are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Adelaide United should prove no easy feat either – Sydney haven’t won against any Australia. A League leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Adelaide United have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Adelaide United dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Australia. A League’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Adelaide United are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Adelaide United and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Adelaide United’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Sydney are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Sydney took a point away from Adelaide United (1-1 draw).

Notably, Adelaide United’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Adelaide United have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Australia. A League away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Sydney, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Sydney getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Sydney are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Adelaide United hold the best away record in the Australia. A League (W8 D2 L1). Sydney’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Adelaide United’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Adelaide Unitedns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Adelaide United win at 15/2 with bet365.
