Round 13 Stats Preview - #SYDvADL


Ahead of Adelaide United’s visit to face Sydney FC on Sunday, Opta has provided the key statistics for the clash.

The Reds come into the clash winless in their past seven encounters with the Sky Blues.

However, Marco Kurz’s men have won four of their last six away matches in the league, while never trailing at half-time in those games.

Moreover, Adelaide come into the meeting on a four-game unbeaten streak and most recently dispatched Melbourne Victory 2-0, courtesy of a dominant first-half display.

Nikola Mileusnić has been directly involved in four of United’s previous six goals, scoring three and laying off one assist.

Captain, Isaías, produced one his finest performances for the Club against Victory as he bossed the midfield with his composure and guile. The 31-year-old recorded a 75% passing accuracy rate, created five chances, made four interceptions, and prevailed in nine duels.

Craig Goodwin bagged his fifth league goal of the season with a sliding finish against Melbourne to take his overall tally to 10. The winger also delivered seven crosses into the area, made three interceptions and four tackles.

Ryan Strain was again heavily involved from a defensive perspective. He won 13 of 19 duels, executed five successful tackles, and notched six clearances.
