Round 25 Stats Preview - #ADLvPER

Ahead of Adelaide United’s home meeting with Perth Glory on Friday night, Opta has provided the key statistics for the clash.

The Reds enjoy a strong home record against the Glory, losing only one of their previous seven matches at Coopers Stadium (W4, D2).

In fact, Adelaide have only suffered three defeats in their preceding 14 matches to Perth.

Heading into Friday night’s clash, Adelaide are on a four-game unbeaten run across the Hyundai A-League and AFC Champions League, netting eight goals in the process.

Guillermo Amor’s side possess the second highest percentage of duels contested this season with 52%.

Reds talisman Baba Diawara starred in his last outing, scoring a brace from his five shots on target in the 3-2 victory over the Central Coast Mariners. The ex-Sevilla marksman’s prolific run of form has seen him bag four goals in his past three matches in all competitions.

United’s Jesse Makarounas boasted a passing accuracy rate of 82% against the Mariners. He also fashioned a lovely whipped corner allowing Dylan McGowan to thump his header home.

Adelaide’s centre-back pairing of McGowan and Taylor Regan uncannily both recorded the same number of clearances (8) and interceptions (7) in the victory over Central Coast.

Adelaide United host Perth Glory in Round 25 of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season on Friday, 31 March at Coopers Stadium. Kick-off is at 7.20pm ACDT.
