We look at the playoff's and predict some of the outcomes.
The A-League is operated by the FFA (Football Federation of Australia), and this professional men’s soccer league is at the top tier of the Australian league system. Established in 2004, it is the country’s main competition for the sport, and the league is the successor to the NSL (National Soccer League).
Currently, the league is contested by nine teams in Australia and one team that is based in New Zealand. Because its main sponsor is the Hyundai Motor Company, the league is often referred to as the Hyundai A-League.
If you are still on the fence and undecided with whom you should place your bet, Jets’ fans would probably recommend getting free bets from bookies for their team. The Jets’ Captain, Nigel Boogaard has stated several times that the team needs to continue striving to make their fans happy and smiling up to the final moment of the league’s 2016-2017 season.
The last three games of Newcastle’s regular season will allow the team to play from every side of the NSW.
All of this will begin on Saturday when the team has a home game against the Western Sydney Wanderers. The team will then have an away game, #F3Derby, and they will play the Central Coast Mariners. The final round of games will take place at the Allianz Stadium.
Although the Jets are going to miss the final games this year, making it the seventh consecutive year, Boogaard has insisted that the team has a lot to play for in the last three games. The team’s captain went on to say that the team realised at the beginning of the season that it needed to be in the top six.
This was not only a goal for the players or the coaches, but it was a goal for the entire club. Needless to say, the entire Jets’ organization is disappointed that they did not meet this target. However, they understand that they must still play for pride, play for the shirt and work hard to positively represent the club as best as they can.
The only way the players are going to accomplish this is to ensure they show up and get a result this weekend for their supporters.
Boogaard believes that the Jets will need to come as close as they can to the top six. For the team, they are working to salvage as much of this season as they can. The players admit that their last two results were not that great, but as a squad, they have played relatively well. By not performing their best during the entire season, it has cost the team a slot in the top six.
This is one of the reasons why the players are looking to end their season on a high note. There have been some periods during the season where they played they have produced great results. However, during crunch time, the team was not able to pull out the win.
The hopes that Perth Glory had about finishing in a top four spot seem to be quickly fading away. On the other hand, Adelaide United’s chances seem to be improving. In fact, United is looking to take advantage of the winning streak at the Coopers Stadium. Kick-Off is set for 7:20PM local time and 7:50PM ADT.
This week, the spotlight has been on Lucian Goian. Sadly, it was not a debut for the Romanian centre-back to remember when the team played against Sydney. Goian turned the ball over into his own net after signing with the team. He is an injury replacement player, and he had only signed with the team six days prior to this game.
Final prediction: United 2-2 Glory.
