Bookmakers believe that the main contenders for the Australian title are the following four teams: Melbourne City, Western Sydney Wanderers, Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United. If you are a gambler and like to bet from your smartphone, then download the apk application.
Rado Vidosic’s wards had an excellent start in the regular season and by the sixth round they were the only team that did not suffer a single defeat. After drawing with Wellington Phoenix, Melbourne City beat Western United, Brisbane Roar, Melbourne Victory, Perth Glory and Newcastle Jets. At the same time, the brainchild of City Football Group and Holding M.S. Australia scored 14 goals against the opponents, and conceded only 4. The team from the state of Victoria cannot be called a star, but in terms of team play, the team is strong.
If the “citizens” continue to perform in the same spirit, then reaching the playoffs will only be a matter of time. In addition, based on the form of competitors, Scott Jamison and partners are quite capable of reaching at least the final for the fourth season in a row.
Western Sydney Wanderers
The team of Mark Rudan started the regular championship quite well. In the starting six rounds, the “wanderers” won four times and drew once, and also lost. Losing to the Central Coast Mariners and signing the world with Brisbane Roar, the Sydney players defeated Perth Glory, Melbourne Victory, Newcastle Jets and Sydney. It should be noted that the “wanderers” won exclusively dry and by the beginning of December they had one of the strongest defenses in the league. Although the brainchild of Paul Lederer did not really shine in attack.
Before the start of the current season, the “wanderers” have increased impressively. Striker Suleyman Krpic came from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Marcelo from France, who played for Bordeaux and Yeni Atito N’Gbakoto from Nancy. In addition, an experienced Serb, Milos Ninkovic, moved from the camp of Sydney’s principal rival. In general, the Wanderers may well aim for gold medals.
Tony Popovich’s guys finished second in the regular season last season, and were eliminated in the playoffs at the semi-final stage. Now “victory” will try to perform better. An experienced coach has been at the helm of the team for the second year and is still trying to put together a competitive team. Although in the starting six rounds, the “big V” scored only seven points. Defeating Sydney and Newcastle Jets with a total score of 6:2, the brainchild of Anthony Di Pietro painted a “dry” world with Brisbane Roar. But Western Sydney Wanderers, Melbourne City and Adelaide United, the inhabitants of Marvel, lost.
Despite the unstable results at the start of the season, “victory” is able to break into the playoffs. With the right mindset, Joshua Brillant and partners can force a knockout fight.
The Reds have been Australian champions once in the club’s history in the 2015/2016 season. Karl Wirth’s guys started the regular season this year with losses to MacArthur and draws with Wellington Phoenix and Sydney. However, then Adelaide United alternately managed to beat Perth Glory, Western United and Melbourne Victory. By the beginning of the December segment, this allowed the inhabitants of the Coopers Stadium to take third place in the standings. There are still many games ahead, but Craig Goodwin and the company are able to compete for the strongest six.
The “Reds” can add and are distinguished by psychological resilience. After several matches without a win, the Adelaide footballers do not lose heart and are able to give out a series of winnings. So the brainchild of Gregg Griffin can get into the playoffs.
Melbourne City is the main contender for gold, but Western Sydney Wanderers, which has a good line-up, may well surprise and win the trophy. It is possible that it is the “citizens” and “wanderers” who will meet in the final battle. Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United are unstable and the maximum for these clubs seems to be the semi-finals.
