Yesterday was crazy right! We got the double, Australia voted YES and we also confirmed our place in the 2018 World Cup in Russia!!!! Legit, slept like a baby last night because after the long journey to get to both these things, it just feels SO GOOD.
Anyway you guys probably aren’t here to listen to me talk about those things, rather you want to know what is going on next round in the W-League, and whether we will all be able to laugh at how wrong some of these predictions will likely be once the games are played in this unpredictable league we all love. So here we have it
Brisbane Roar vAdelaide United||
Friday 17th November 5.20pm 17th || On SBS Viceland and Foxsport
Big game. Important game. The side who wins this will be looking the goods to challenge for a Premiership. Normally I would consider it easy money to bet on Brisbane to win this. But the game Adelaide played last weekend against Perth was nothing short of captivating. If Adelaide can get the possession they need, and nullify the Brisbane midfield then I’m confident Adelaide will have this in the bag
Prediction: Brisbane Roar 0 – 2 Adelaide United
Sydney FC vMelbourne City ||
Saturday 18th November 5.00pm
City are coming into this game in red hot form. Sydney look the complete opposite. Despite dominating parts of their game against Canberra last weekend, Sydney are yet to score from open play and seem to be lacking bite. Meanwhile City have me convinced from last weekend that they are here to win every game thrown at them. I’m going to go with heart in this game though, Sydney will have a point to prove and surely can’t lose their first four games of the season.
Prediction: Sydney FC 4 – 3 Melbourne City
Newcastle Jets v Canberra United||
Sunday 19th November 4.30pm
This is tough. I think this game will be a matter of which side is the healthiest. Newcastle took a bit of a battering against city last weekend, and if key players, such as Tori Huster and Natasha Prior, are not fit they may struggle. Canberra are coming off an epic win last weekend, after sealing a win with a late goal and will be hungry to continue this form. Largely because I’ve yet to watch Canberra and partly because of the unknown of the Jets injury list, I’m going to guess this game will be evenly matched.
Prediction: Newcastle 1 – 1 Canberra
Perth Glory v Melbourne Victory||
Sunday 19th November 4.30pm || On SBS Viceland and Foxsports
Perth will be looking to hit back from last weeks unpredictable loss. It became apparent last weekend that Perth’s attack is heavily reliant on the work Sam Kerr does upfront. If fit to play, Kerr could again be the difference in this game. Keep in mind, Melbourne haven’t looked the meek opponent of previous seasons. If the bye from last week can serve them well, they could be well rested and chomping at the bit to kick Perth while they are down. I see this being a tight game, with some brilliant play by forwards from both teams but Kerr’s world class attributes will give Perth the edge this week, if she is available to play.
Prediction: Perth Glory 3 – 1 Melbourne Victory
