A-League Grand Final My Preview
The A-League Grand Final should be entertaining and it’s not easy to pick a winner in either in some respects. Hopefully the Grand Final is entertaining as the A-League needs a strong finish to the season to really make an impact in the Australian sporting market; hopefully the grand final is a close one and not one sided. There are no second chances for the Glory and the Sky Blues, the winner of the game will win the A-League title.
Sunday May 19th
Glory v Sky Blues
The Sky Blues have the edge with Andrew Redmayne the better goal keeper in my opinion, despite the fact that Liam Reddy did a great job in a penalty shoot out in the Semi Final.
The Glory let in 3 goals in the A-League Semi Final, while the Sky Blues only let in 1 goal in their Semi Final. Shane Lowry of the Glory has been outstanding this season, but I believe that the Sky Blues have a better defence. The Sky Blues have a solid defence led by veteran Alex Wilkinson. Aaron Calver managed to score the first goal in the Semi Final. The Sky Blues wing backs in Rhyan Grant and Michael Zullo are also quality players. The Sky Blues have the better defence.
The Sky Blues have a better midfield than the Glory with a good mix of attacking and defensive players. Brandon O’Neill and Josh Brillante are quality central midfielders and they should control the balance of play. The player who has more impact between Glory’s Diego Castro and the Sky Blues Milos Ninkovic could win the game.
It’s Andy Keogh against Adam Le Fondre and the Sky Blues Captain Alex Brosque. I think the Sky Blues should have more talent in their forward line.
Glory Game Changer: Jason Davidson
Sky Blues Game Changer: Josh Brillante
My Prediction: Sky Blues
