Wanderers-vs-Reds-Grand-Final

The 2015-16 A-league season comes to a conclusion this weekend with Adelaide United hosting the Western Sydney Wanderers in the Grand Final. We take a look at the match and the two sides and offer our A-league Grand Final Betting Tips.

Adelaide United vs Western Sydney Wanderers (Sunday 4pm AEDT)

The Reds have made it to the Grand Final on the back of a second half resurgence that has been so dominant that they were able to take out the minor premiers plate which has given them home field advantage in the biggest game of the year. In their last 20 matches they have lost just one game and won 15 of those contests. It is a dominant stretch they have gone on and their winning ways continue against the Wanderers as they have lost just one of the last 8 meetings against the Western Sydney side and won four of those. Bruce Djite has found terrific form at the perfect end of the season as his goal scoring boots have been put on as he has kicked the Reds into the Grand Final.

The Reds came out as the better side in their semi-final meeting against the Melbourne City but they were forced to take a 0-0 score into half time. However, they were firing in the second half and ended up claiming the match 4-1 in a comfortable victory to advance to the A-league grand Final.

Meanwhile the Western Sydney Wanderers were forced to do it the hard way against the Brisbane Roar last week as they allowed the visiting side to find the back of the net three times inside the opening 30-minutes. It looked as if it was going to be a disastrous match for the Wanderers that could have been one of their most embarrassing matches in history, instead it turned out to be one of the greatest comebacks in A-league history and also one of the most entertaining.

The Wanderers will take a lot out of their 5-4 win in extra time as it shows they are never out of the match and they have a lot of character to not give up despite the score line being against them. However, there are also hard lessons to be learnt that will benefit them, as they know they can’t afford to have another start similar to that in a Grand Final match. They will be relying on Mitch Nichols to control the midfield and create a lot of opportunities for the front men such as Romeo Castelen and Mark Bridge. Castelen and his pace is a vital key to their success and they will need him at his best to cause havoc for the solid Adelaide defence. The Wanderers have reached their third Grand Final in four season since entering the competition and they will be hoping it is third time lucky for the side that has lost their two previous Grand Final appearances.

These two sides played three draws this season, including the last two ending in 0-0 draws. However, the Wanderers have found the back of the net 11 times in their last three matches and we are expecting this match to be a high scoring one with the Reds not afraid to push forward in attack and their should be a lot of opportunities created for both sides in the entertaining match. We will be backing the Reds to come out as victors as their form heading into this match has been too good to back against, especially on home soil.
