2018-2019 A League Contenders

Perth Glory

Perth Glory, who are sitting pretty at the top of the ladder, six points clear of second, come in as favourites to win their first premiership under the A-League brand. Perth’s last month of football has seen them lose to the Victory, who firm as strong contenders in this year’s chase for the title, as well as a draw to City and the Wanderers. Their last four games against Central Coast, Newcastle, Sydney and Wellington will determine whether Perth are up for the challenge come finals time in a month.

Sydney FC are primed to go three in a row, as they sit second on the ladder just outside of the finals period. Their form of late has been so-so with a convincing win over Brisbane Roar but a loss two weeks prior to that to City (2-0). Sydney’s next match is expected to be a win against an inform Victory which can result in narrowing the gap between themselves and Perth. Sydney are in need to break the run of Victory defeating them in order to gain form coming into the finals, a win they desperately need to help secure that top two spot.

Melbourne Victory are firming to be a formidable force as they hope to make it three wins in a row against Sydney FC this weekend. Having beaten ladder leaders Perth and Brisbane in previous weeks, Victory are prepared to start making moves up the ladder with a win over Sydney. Victory have won three premiers and are hoping to add more silverware to their collection come the end of finals. They will go in full of confidence having beaten Sydney multiple times over the season and Perth last week creating a feeling of the sky’s the limit and we are in control of our own destiny.

Wellington, Adelaide and Melbourne City will most likely round out the top six that will play-off in the finals in a month’s time. With Wellington winning their last three matches, it’s safe to say that they’ve picked up form at the right end of the year and they’ll be hoping to continue that with a win over Adelaide. Adelaide will be looking to make it two on the trot against Wellington at home as they are looking to get out of a recent form slump resulting in two losses of the last three matches. City will be trying to get back on the winners list against Brisbane at home and regain some of their form that has put them in contention of their first premiership. These three teams firm as strong opponents come finals time, but they do have their work cut out for them if they are going to go deep into the series.
