It is third against second as Adelaide United host Sydney FC in an A-League fixture at Coopers Stadium. Both teams appear evenly matched at the moment as they look to book a place in the final series playoff and should battle to a draw.

Adelaide United earned a 1-0 win at Melbourne Victory in their previous A-League fixture. They ensured the bottom team finished without a single attempt on target and claimed the win thanks to Craig Goodwin's second half effort.

After struggling slightly in recent weeks, Adelaide United appear to be returning to their best with two wins from their last three matches. They are third on the table and need to keep winning to fend off fast rising Macarthur and Central Coast Mariners.

At home is where Thomas Veart’s men often do their best work as they are unbeaten in their last eight matches. They have also impressed at the back lately keeping clean sheets in their last three matches in that run.

Sydney were also victorious in their previous A-League fixture, knocking off Western Sydney Wanderers 1-0. They showed their defensive quality, beating back several attacks from the visitors to hold on to Bobo's second half effort.

With the regular season already decided, a place in the playoffs is the prize for Sydney. They hold a three-point cushion in second position having claimed three wins and a draw from their last four A-League matches.

Manager Steve Corica has built his team’s recent good form on a sturdy defence with Sydney keeping clean sheets in their last three matches. They are also unbeaten in six of their last eight away matches.

How the bookies view it

Sydney have a slight edge among the bookies with BetVictor offering 5/4 for an away win. A victory for Adelaide United is priced at 21/10 by the same firm while Unibet has a draw at odds of 13/5.

Both teams have been on a similar run of form in recent weeks and look set to cancel each other out for a draw.

Head to head

There have been 55 previous matches between Adelaide United and Sydney FC with both teams claiming 22 wins each and 11 draws. Two of the last three fixtures have ended in stalemates, including a 2-2 draw in the most recent meeting.

Players to watch

Michael Jakobsen and Jordan Elsey have impressed in central defence for Adelaide United in recent weeks, leading the team to clean sheets in their last three home matches. They will be hoping for a repeat at 7/2 with Sporting Index.

Sydney have also kept clean sheets in their last three matches with Ryan McGowan and Alex Wilkinson featuring in central defence. They will be hoping for a similar outcome on Saturday at 11/4 with Sporting Index.

Anything else catch the eye?

With Adelaide and Sydney looking solid at the back lately, few goals are expected on Saturday. Under 2.5 goals could be worth a punt at 5/4 with BetVictor.

Only one team could be backed to score at 9/5 with Sporting Index, who are also offering 16/1 on neither team to score.
