Round 6 Stats Preview - #ADLvNEW


Ahead of Adelaide United’s Remembrance Round match against Newcastle Jets on Saturday, Opta has provided the key statistics for the clash.

The Reds have suffered defeat in just one of their past eight matches against Newcastle and have incredibly kept six clean sheets during that stretch.

Moreover, Adelaide have not lost at Coopers Stadium against the Novocastrian outfit since November 2013 – Adelaide’s only defeat at the venue since 2009.

But a tight affair is expected with only one team scoring multiple goals on just one occasion in the past seven games between the pair.

Marco Kurz’s men have fired 41 shots from outside the box this season, 12 greater than any other side in the competition.

Goalkeeper, Paul Izzo, was crowned the Hyundai A-League player of the Round for a brilliant outing against Perth Glory. He made six saves – which included denying Diego Castro from the spot and tipping wide Adam Taggart’s one-on-one effort.

Ben Garuccio and Isaías both lead the league in interceptions with 19, which is incidentally four higher than any other player.

Midfielder, Daniel Adlung, won four tackles against the Glory and prevailed in nine of his 12 duels.

In his second league start, centre-back, Ben Warland, won five duels, made five clearances and one intervention.  

Adelaide United host Newcastle Jets in Round 6 of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season on Saturday, 11 November at Coopers Stadium. Kick-off is at 5.05pm ACDT.
