Check out the best bets for what is set to be one of the most anticipated A-League Grand Final’s in recent history.
Melbourne City vs. Sydney FC
June 27th 5:05pm
The two best teams to do it all year have justifiable set up an enormous A-League Grand Final at AAMI Park.
Melbourne City and Sydney FC progressed through to the season decider after impressive semi-final results last weekend to set up this highly anticipated ending.
A 2-0 victory over Macarthur FC thanks to second half strikes from Stefan Colakovski and Marco Tilio were enough to seal City’s second consecutive grand-final appearance.
Last year’s champion Sydney FC had to fight tooth and nail against Adelaide United last week but would ultimately prevail with a 2-1 semi-final triumph.
Formidable forward duo Adam LeFondre and Bobo ensured the Sky Blues came out on top against a dogged Reds outfit.
April 10 was the last time these teams met and it ended in a 1-1 at Leichhardt Oval, but this time it was City’s turn to have home advantage.
Up to 15,000 have been allowed into the venue with the majority of them wearing sky blue but of the Melbourne City variety.
Jamie Maclaren proved the late saviour against Sydney back in April and, despite not scoring in the semi-final, his presence will worry the Sydney back four.
Sydney coach Steve Corica will have a contingency plan for Maclaren, but he is arguably one of the toughest strikers in the league to quell.
He could win this game on his own foot.
