A-League Round 8 My Preview
Round 8 of the A-League should be a good one, with the competition even and the results unpredictable! Every game appears to be intriguing on paper. Of course the game isn’t played on paper!
My Choice of a definite winner for this Round: Reds
Friday Night Game
Roar v Victory
This should be an interesting game as both teams have a point to prove. I expect the Roar to collect the three points on offer.
Roar Game Changer: Eric Bautheac
Victory Game Changer: Ola Toivenen
My Prediction: Roar
Saturday Night Games
Phoenix v Mariners
It’s eighth against tenth in this one; it should be a good contest between two teams with a point to prove. The Mariners are struggling; without a win and I expect that to continue.
Phoenix Game Changer: Alex Rufer
Mariners Game Changer: Matt Simon
My Prediction: Phoenix
Wanderers v Sky Blues
The Sydney derby should be a cracking contest. I expect the Wanderers to be victorious in this contest.
Wanderers Game Changer: Alexander Baumjohann
Sky Blues Game Changer: Andrew Redmayne
My Prediction: Wanderers
Sunday Night Games
Jets v Glory
This should be a thoroughly entertaining game. I expect the Jets to be too strong at home and take all three points on offer.
Jets Game Changer: Dimitri Petratos
Glory Game Changer: Shane Lowry
My Prediction: Jets
Reds v City
It’s fourth against fifth in this contest. I expect the Reds to win this one, but I still expect it to be an interesting game.
