Round 19 Stats Preview – #ADLvPER


Ahead of Adelaide United’s crucial meeting with Perth Glory on Friday night, Opta has provided the key statistics for the clash.

Coopers Stadium has proven to be a fortress for United against the Western Australian outfit, with the Club unbeaten in their previous six home games (W4, D2).

In fact, Adelaide have conceded just two goals in their past four home fixtures versus the Glory.

The Reds have scored two goals in back-to-back home games and will be looking to continue that scoring form again on Friday.

Reds defender, Dylan McGowan, leads the team in clearances with 71 and has also won 81% of his tackles.

Adelaide youngster, Jordan O’Doherty, netted his maiden Hyundai A-League goal in stunning fashion against the Central Coast Mariners and will hope to add to that strike against Perth.

Argentine maestro, Marcelo Carrusca, was impressive on his return from injury with a 20-minute cameo off the bench against the Mariners – creating two chances and boasting a passing accuracy rate of 87%.

Adelaide United host Perth Glory in Round 19 of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season on Friday, 10 February at Coopers Stadium. Kick-off is at 7.20pm ACDT.
