Where: Allianz Stadium
Sydney FC’s championship defence got off to the perfect start after collecting all three points from their Big Blue stoush with Melbourne Victory in the Big Blue.
The Sky Blues showed great resolve to withstand and absorb Victory’s aggressive ‘press’ and if the Phoenix employ those tactics against the Sky Blues, they’ll be well-equipped to handle it.
Graham Arnold will need manage his players’ playing time this week with this game the second of two games in five days after Wednesday’s FFA Cup semi-final against South Melbourne.
An undermanned Wellington salvaged a point against the Reds but will be bolstered by the return of Michael McGlinchey, Thomas Doyle and Andrew Durante from international duty.
Sydney FC’s feared defence delivered another clean sheet and another perfect defensive effort against the Phoenix will see them continue a perfect start to the new campaign.
