The second round of the A-League is here. The teams have certainly been putting on a show with their fresh faces, leaving Aussie football fanatics in awe. Get ready for some thrilling clashes happening all over the land down under.
Get ready for some sizzling action in Brisbane this Friday (27/10) with the local squad, Roar, hosting Sydney in an intense showdown.
After a lukewarm start to the season, this will be Roar’s chance to impress their fans and hopefully score a win, following their underwhelming draw against Western Sydney Wanderers.
But it won’t be an easy ride for the guests either, who are still reeling from their humiliating home defeat against Melbourne Victory.
With both teams vying for victory and laser focus, this game is guaranteed to be a scorcher.
The match between Western Sydney Wanderers and Western United at 19:45 is the highlight of Saturday’s schedule (28/10).
The Wanderers, like the Roar, will have a second chance to impress their home crowd after drawing their first match against Wellington Phoenix.
It will be interesting to see if Anthony Pantazopoulos, who joined the team from Oakleigh Cannons this year, will earn a spot on the team.
On the other hand, the visitors will travel to western Sydney with high spirits.
Their victory against City at their home ground last week has given John Aloisi’s players a boost, and they are eager for a second consecutive win. This will undoubtedly send a strong message to their friends and rivals.
That same day in the afternoon, we will witness a duel between the formidable Wellington Phoenix and this year’s promising Perth Glory.
Both teams drew on the first matchday and will undoubtedly take to the field with the goal of scoring three points.
On Sunday (28/10), three spectacular matches will take place to conclude the action.
The derby between Central Coast Mariners and Macarthur will kick off at 3pm.
This high-profile match is expected to attract thousands of football fans to the stadium, as it is difficult to predict the outcome.
The hosts recently tied with the Roar at home, while the visitors were handed a heavy 3-0 defeat by local United in Adelaide.
Two hours later and far south of the country, the match between Melbourne Victory and Newcastle Jets will begin.
Melbourne Victory, the standout performers of matchday one, comfortably beat Sydney and put on a great performance, giving hope to the thousands of eager Melbourne fans for a successful season.
The Jets are not visiting Victoria’s capital for sightseeing.
With a strong team, the visitors are capable of causing problems for any opponent.
Although Victory is considered the favorite, the actual outcome is often different from what is expected in theory.
Let’s see what will happen in this case.
Sunday at 7pm at the stunning Coopers Stadium will mark the end of the second matchday.
Adelaide United and Melbourne City will compete against each other, with the latter trying to bounce back from their downfall in last week’s game against Western United. The hosts displayed a convincing win against the Mariners in their first match and appear well-equipped to take on one of the league’s top teams.
