Where: Spotless Stadium
There’ll be a strong Spanish flavour in this clash with two former Spanish LA Liga stars set to tango when the Wanderers host the Glory.
Former Osasuna and Betis winger Alvaro Cejudo (pictured above) makes his A-League debut for the Wanderers while LA Liga veteran Xavi Torres debuts for the Glory.
The Wanderers are still reeling from the shock departure of long-time coach Tony Popovic, who with just a week before the start of the season, announced his resignation to take up a coaching job in Turkey.
It’s a distraction the Wanderers could have done without but the red and black can look forward to seeing Cejudo playing in the A-League for the first time.
Hard to know who Popovic’s sudden departure will affect the players.
One way or another, a change of coaches isn’t the ideal preparation just days before kick-off.
Smooth sailing on the other hand for the Glory who have their big guns in Andy Keogh (pictured above) and Diego Castro ready and raring to go.
Glory in an upset.
