Adelaide United v Perth Glory
When: Friday, February 5 at 19:06 AEDT
Where: Coopers Stadium
Weather: Cloudy, 16°C
Perth Glory claimed their second victory of the season on Sunday when they humiliated Melbourne City 3-1 at AAMI Park. Perth completed the upset with three goals coming in 11th, 42nd and 84th minute from Daniel Stynes, Dane Ingham and Nicholas D’Agostino respectively.
Besides conceding in the 33rd minute, Perth looked on point and ended the game with 37% ball possession and shot the ball 3/11 with one shot hitting the woodwork. Perth also completed 73% of their passes, gave up only five fouls and received five yellow cards.
Adelaide United suffered only their second loss of the season on Saturday when they went down 1-3 against Brisbane Roar at the Redcliffe Stadium. Roar opened the scoring with a 37th-minute goal via Dylan Wenzel-Halls, to which they added another via Jay O’Shea in 45th and Wenzel-Halls’s second goal of the night in 78th. Adelaide’s only goal came in the 82nd minute from Nathan Konstandopoulos.
Adelaide ended the game with a 53% ball possession and shot the ball with a disappointing 1/5. On a more positive note, they completed 82% of their passes, which was good for 401/487, however, they leaked 11 fouls and received one yellow card.
These two sides usually produce very high scoring affairs when they meet. Their last two clashes ended with the final scoreline showing 5-3, once in favor of Adelaide and once in favor of Perth. It’s also important to note that there were at least three goals per one side in all of their last four meetings for a combined 26 goals in that stretch.
Seeing Perth defeat City in Melbourne was quite impressive, as there are not many teams that can manage what they did, especially considering that was their third game in a week. This begs the question: what are Perth capable of with a couple of rest days behind them?
If Perth’s recent showing are any indication, they won’t be an easy team to beat and as long as D’Agostino and Armiento can keep their form, Adelaide will have a tough time walking away from this bout with anything.
Prediction: Perth Glory to win
