thumbnail Hello,

The home side are being backed in to account for the Sky Blues when these two teams kick off Round 24 in an enticing clash at Coopers Stadium, with plenty of value to be found

Adelaide United are favourites to win at home to Sydney FC in an A-League clash between direct finals rivals on Friday night.

Josep Gombau's team, sixth on the table, are paying $1.90 at bet365 to win at home to the Sky Blues, who go into the game a point ahead in fifth spot and are paying $3.80 to come away from Coopers Stadium with all three points.

You can get the draw in this one at $3.60.

The last meeting between these teams ended in a convincing 3-0 win for the Reds at Allianz Stadium in February. You can get $17.00 on a repeat of that scoreline, and $41.00 on Frank Farina's men turning the tables on Adelaide and registering their own 3-0 victory on the road.


Back Adelaide to win at $1.90

Go for a half-time draw, full-time Sydney win at $9.00

Bruce Djite and Jeronimo Neumann both found the back of the net in that game, and you can get $6.00 and $7.50 respectively on them opening the scoring in this one.

Fabio Ferreira was also on the scoresheet, and he's paying $8.50 to break the deadlock or $3.25 to hit the back of the net at any time in the game.

Perhaps with the Reds' dangerous frontline - and Sydney's at times questionable defence - in mind, over 2.5 goals in the game is the favourite at $1.70, with under 2.5 goals paying $2.10.

Gombau's men were 2-0 up by half-time last time these two clashed, and you can get a tempting $2.87 on Adelaide leading both at half-time and full-time.

If you fancy the visitors to win in a tight one, go for the half-time draw and full-time Sydney win at $9.00.
