Matchweek 23 ends and we head into Matchweek 24 tomorrow evening as the end of regular A-League season is upon us.
Perth Glory take on Brisbane and Adelaide United and Western Sydney bring us into the final round.
Brisbane Roar vs. Perth Glory
June 2nd 7:05pm
It is do or die for Perth Glory when it travels to Moreton Bay Stadium for a clash against Brisbane Roar tonight.
The Glory sit four points outside the top six and a win on the road would put them one step closer to securing the final spot inside the finals.
Perth has gone undefeated through its last six matches but hit stumbling blocks with two stalemates in its last two fixtures.
Roar, meanwhile, had the chance to secure a finals berth against Western Sydney but was dealt a 2-0 blow and now, like its opponent, must win this match.
Richard Garcia’s men will surely enter this game brimming with confidence given the 3-1 result it had over Brisbane earlier this season.
Spiritual leader Diego Castro managed a brace in the victory and veteran talisman Bruno Fornaroli also got in on the act.
Value lies with the Glory in this game.
Prediction: Brisbane Roar 1 Perth Glory 2
Suggested Bet: Perth Glory head to head $3.2
Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Perth Glory head to head
Leg 2: B. Fornaroli to score anytime
Combined odds = $4.2
Adelaide United vs. Western Sydney Wanderers
June 3rd 7:35pm
Adelaide United face a desperate Western Sydney Wanderers on Thursday night.
A win for the Reds will see them lock in a top six spot, while a win for the Wanderers will keep its season alive and reliant on other results.
Western Sydney got itself back on track with an important 2-0 win over the Brisbane Roar on Sunday with both Bernie Ibini and Bruce Kamau on target.
The Reds, however, suffered a very heavy 4-1 defeat to Sydney and matters were made worse with the sending off of Jordan Elsey in the 63rd minute.
Ironically, Adelaide and Western Sydney both copped a red card in the 1-1 draw it played out the last time they met each other back in April.
Adelaide started the favourite in that match and do so again here.
It’s a match that is tough to split and another between the teams might be the way this plays out.
Prediction: Adelaide United 2 Western Sydney Wanderers 2
Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.7
