Reds face Adelaide City in Australia Cup Round of 16

Adelaide United will play Adelaide City in the Australia Cup 2022 Round of 16 after Wednesday night’s draw.

The date, venue and time will be confirmed at a later date by Football Australia.

This will be the first meeting between the two sides in the Australia Cup, and the second time the Reds face a South Australian outfit after beating Adelaide Olympic 1-0 last year.

Adelaide advanced to the last 16 for a seventh time following a 2-0 win over Newcastle Jets, courtesy of goals from George Blackwood and Hiroshi Ibusuki.

The Black and Whites defeated Logan Lightning 1-0 in their opening round clash.

United won the inaugural tournament in 2014 before clinching the trophy again in 2018 and 2019 to become the most successful team in the competition’s history.
