NWS Spirit vs APIA Leichhardt Tips


NWS Spirit have struggled for consistency this term, with their last five matches ending in four defeats and a single win.

  • APIA Leichhardt Form 

APIA Leichhardt have won their last two games in a row including a very impressive 3-0 win over Sydney FC U21 in their last outing. 

  • NWS Spirit have lost four of their last five games (W1)
  • The Spirit have won seven times at home (D3, L4)
  • APIA have won seven of their last 10 (L2, D1)
  • The away side have won nine times on the road (D3, L2) 

Head to Head


The two sides met back in May as APIA hammered their opponents 5-0 in a stunning win. 

NWS Spirit Form 


NWS Spirit have really struggled for wins and points of late, with their disappointing run seeing them slip down the ladder. 

Currently sitting in 11th on the ladder, NWS Spirit have won 10 of their 28 matches, drawing five times and losing 13 games. The 35 points they have picked up means they are closer to the bottom of the table than they are to their next opponents at the summit. 

While they have been disappointing this year, the Spirit can have a real say on how the season goes if they are to take wins from the leaders this week. With seven wins and three draws and 14 home games this term, APIA cannot underestimate the Spirit in this one. 

APIA Leichhardt Form 


APIA Leichhardt have been superb this season, and they currently sit four points clear of Rockdale Ilinden in second. 

Their place at the summit came under serious threat in late July as they were hammered 4-0 by Manly United and 2-1 by Blacktown City. This gave the sides below them a huge chance to cut the gap at the top. 

However, APIA have since bounced back in fine style by beating Sydney Olympic 5-3 before then downing Sydney FC U21 3-0. On the road, APIA have impressed, winning nine of their 14, drawing three and losing just twice. Interestingly, APIA have scored 28 goals on the road, while they have conceded 24 times, showing they are not blowing the opposition away on the road. 

Verdict

I am backing APIA to secure their third win in a row despite not being able to keep a clean sheet in the match.
