Football Alive

Watch all A-League highlights from round 25

The weekend was another fantastic round of Football played in front of far too few fans.

In Western Australia, Sydney FC won their second consecutive Premiership with style despite a late comeback including a belter from Adam Taggart.

The Sky Blues will be extremely hard to beat in the upcoming finals series and must start strong favourites.

Perth Glory vs Sydney FC

In Adelaide, the Reds played against a Wellington team playing for pride after another forgettable season.

The Nix could have had an early penalty with claims waved away whilst Adelaide was in punishing form with Absalonsen again showing himself to be the form forward in the competition over the last few weeks.

Adelaide vs Phoenix

Brisbane Roar took a massive step towards finals football setting up a blockbuster with WSW next weekend with a hard-fought 1-0 win over a plucky Mariners side.

Henrique scored the only goal of the game in his first start for the year showing the veteran still has plenty to give the Queensland club.

Roar vs Mariners

Melbourne Victory vs WSW was a typically controversial game which again threw the VAR into the spotlight, that is unfortunate because the finishing was exquisite.

Leroy George may have been lucky with his deflection but Cejudo’s chip, Berisha’s penalty and a rocket from Thomas Deng were fantastic goals between the bitter rivals.

Newcastle suffered another reverse since letting Nabbout leave this time to Melbourne City, Bruno Fornaroli tried everything to get the opening goal before bludgeoning one into the net from close range.

After that former Wanderer, Dario Vidosic scored a brace to wrap a deserved win for the Melbourne team, themselves assured of a Semi-Finals berth and looking more and more dangerous.

The penultimate weekend of the A-League is upon us next week with Wanderers season on the line against Brisbane and in form Adelaide looking to test themselves against Premiers Sydney FC looking to be the pick of the fixtures.

Newcastle will look to return to form against Perth who must win to stay in contention whilst you would fancy both Melbourne teams to win with City taking on the Mariners and Victory the Phoenix.
