Adelaide United will face Melbourne Knights in the FFA Cup 2019 Round of 32 at Knights Stadium on Wednesday, 7 August at 7pm ACST, after the details were confirmed this afternoon.
The match will also be broadcast Live and Exclusive on FOX SPORTS that night.

The Reds became the first team to win the competition twice after triumphing past Sydney FC 2-1 in last year’s title decider, thanks to a stunning Craig Goodwin brace.
The sixth instalment of the FFA Cup will see Adelaide looking to defend its crown and aim to become the first side two win the FFA Cup back-to-back.
