THE PREDICTION

Despite so many of their key men being unavailable due to the pandemic, Perth Glory have overcome the absence of the likes of Diego Castro to reach the semi-finals. They produced an excellent performance to claim a 1-0 win against Wellington last week but now they face arguably the best team in the A-League. Sydney have not played in 11 days but the bigger concern will be the fact they have not won any of their last five games. They had already wrapped up the league leaders’ shield but they have to regain their best form now for the business end of the season. Glory’s priority will be another clean sheet but that will be tough against Sydney and expect Le Fondre and company to fire them into the final.
