Round 22 Stats Preview – #WSWvADL


Ahead of Adelaide United’s crucial clash against Western Sydney Wanderers, Opta has provided the key statistics for the match.

Adelaide will be looking to beat the Wanderers in Sydney for the first time in the Hyundai A-League.

The Reds’ previous two trips to face Tony Popovic’s men have yielded consecutive goalless draws.

Guillermo Amor’s troops have frustratingly hit the woodwork on 12 occasions this season, three more than any other side in the competition.

Reds playmaker, Marcelo Carrusca, won eight of his 10 duels in the game against Melbourne Victory last week.

Tarek Elrich, who scored his second of the season against the Victory, boasted six clearances, four interceptions and was successful in all three of his tackles for United.

Adelaide gloveman, Daniel Margush, impressed in his first appearance of the season versus the Victory, making two instinctive saves on his way to being deservedly named in the Hyundai A-League’s Team of the Week.

Adelaide United will face Western Sydney Wanderers in Round 22 of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season on Saturday, 4 March at Spotless Stadium. Kick-off is at 7.20pm ACDT.
