PREDICTION
Perth Glory suffered a heavy loss to Sydney last time out and they will be happy to return home where they are typically strong. Adelaide have three first team players on international duty with the under-23s so they are weakened and they may find the hosts too much for them on this long trip west.

MEMORABLE MEETING
12 months ago saw Adelaide United earn their last win over Perth Glory with it also coming at Perth’s nib Stadium. The Glory would go in front but then also end the first half with 10 men after a sending off for Alexander Grant. United would use their numerical supremacy in the second half to score three unanswered goals and take maximum points back to Adelaide.
