Two goals in as many minutes have kept Sydney FC’s undefeated season rolling, with Alex Brosque and Milos Ninkovic both hitting the scoreboard to lift the A-League leaders to a 2-0 victory over Adelaide.
The Sky Blues struggled early on Friday night at a slippery Sydney Football Stadium and were left frustrated by a wrongly disallowed Filip Holosko goal.
The win keeps them on track to become the A-League’s first ever invincibles – they now have 11 games to go to remain unbeaten. They are now $2.80 favourites for the Championship.
In further good news, their closest rivals, Melbourne Victory have stumbled to two defeats in the past week. Victory lost 2-1 in Perth on Saturday night despite taking the lead through Besart Berisha just before the hour mark.
Perth produced a rousing comeback in the final 25 minutes to shore up their top six spot. The loss leaves Melbourne second favourite for the title at $3.40 while Glory remain on the fifth line of betting at $13.
A brace from Tim Cahill against the Mariners ensured that Melbourne City took home all three points. The Citizens remain on the third line of betting at $6.50 while the Mariners are now at the huge odds of $101.
The Wanderers finally ended their winless run at home with a 2-0 win over the Jets at Campbelltown Stadium on Sunday. A maiden A-League goal to Wanderers’ 19-year-old striker Lachlan Scott opened the scoring just before the break before Jaushua Sotirio gave the hosts a two-goal cushion.
The Phoenix were unable to make it three wins in seven days when they hosted Brisbane. A late Jamie MacLaren goal saw the visitors consolidate fourth spot on the table with the 1-0 win.
