We have reached sudden death for both Perth Glory and Brisbane Roar as they go into their final A-League game of the regular season knowing that it is winner takes it all. However, even victory might not be enough to secure a place in the play-offs.

That is because they currently lie eighth and seventh in the table respectively while sharing the same amount of points (32). A win for either side would see them move to sixth place and fill the last finals series berth for at least 24 hours.

Then the focus shifts to Western Sydney the following day as the Wanderers play host to Adelaide United, and should they lose then they would spurn the opportunity to extend their season by at least a week and whoever wins this clash would reap the spoils.

There are many permutations but the thing that should not be forgotten is the fact that there is little to split these two sides and that could give us the scenario that neither team wants. That being a draw, which could in turn mean that both clubs miss out.
