Melbourne City and Adelaide United meet at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday in a game that has serious implictions for the A-League finals destination of both clubs. A win for City would secure a semi-final spot, while the Reds need a win to boost their own hopes of sealing a place in the elimination finals.

City are second and can guarantee finishing in that spot should they win their penultimate game of the season. 

In what is their last game of the regular season, Adelaide can turn the heat on Perth Glory and Western United and jump up to fifth spot. With games in hand, however, the finals fate of both rivals would still be in their own hands.

Melbourne City Form


Melbourne City have only played one game since the A-League season returned, but it was a win that has left them on the verge of sealing a semi-final spot courtesy of second place on the ladder.

City were 2-0 winners over Premiers Plate winners Sydney FC last week thanks to goals from Craig Noone and Jamie Maclaren. Another three points in this game would guarantee a second place finish behind the Sky Blues.

Adelaide United Form


Adelaide United have enjoyed an upturn in form since the A-League season returned to action and are the only team to go unbeaten since the resumption. 

Two wins over Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory and two draws against Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC have given the Reds a chance of going beyond the regular season. They need a result against City and to hope other fixtures go their way.
