Reason For Adelaide United vs Perth Glory Predictions

It’s not exactly been a fruitful few weeks for Adelaide, who’ve slipped to 5th in the table. Friday’s hosts have won none of their last four matches, two of which they’ve lost, while they’ve now gone two games without finding the back of the net. Such form is not ideal ahead of a match against the current league leaders.

On the face of it, Adelaide were easily beaten by Sydney FC last time out, though the score-line probably wasn’t the fairest reflection of what happened in the game. They were by no means great, but Adelaide created as much as their opponents, while they didn’t give anywhere near enough away to deservedly concede twice. The fact that they created 1.22 expected goals for and conceded 1.15 tells us that a draw, probably a 1-1 draw, would’ve been a much fairer outcome. However, there can be no getting away from the fact that Adelaide have no misfired twice in a row. Their end-product will need to be much better if they’re to get anything from this match.

Fortunately, the recent attacking numbers posted by Friday’s hosts at home have been very pleasing. Adelaide have scored in each of their last four home games, scoring at least twice in three of those, scoring a total of nine. During that time, they’ve recorded expected-goals for numbers of 2.24, 4.82, 1.43 and 2.4, so they’ve been useful both in terms of creativity and end-product. They’ve also bettered their opponents in terms of expected goals in each of their last five at home.

Furthermore, the hosts will be able to draw upon the positive experience they had when going away to nib Stadium and earning a draw in the reverse of this fixture. On that occasion, Friday’s hosts didn’t offer a great deal going forward, as they failed to score and clocked just 0.68 expected goals for, but they did keep a clean sheet, while they restricted Perth to just 0.68 expected goals for. A repeat of that performance would likely see Adelaide get a decent result on Friday.

While Adelaide have looked good at home of late, Perth haven’t exactly flourished on their travels. The league leaders are anything but easy to beat, as they’re now unbeaten away from home during the current campaign, but they’ve won just one of their last four travelling matches. In addition, they’ve delivered some rather subdued effort on the road of late. They posted just 0.73 expected goals for when failing to score away against Melbourne City recently, while they only mustered 0.87 when drawing 1-1 away against Western Sydney Wanderers.

Beating the league leaders won’t be easy, though it’s not tough to fancy the hosts based on their recent home efforts. A repeat of their commanding win over Melbourne Victory, who’re currently 3rd in the table, would surely see them do well in this fixture. Moreover, they’ve already proved that they can nullify Perth. Add in the fact that the recent away performances of Friday’s visitors haven’t all been great and backing the hosts at a price that may just be on the large side stands out as the best option.
