Adelaide have prevailed in three of their last four games against City, including a win in Melbourne during that streak.

The Reds will be looking to secure consecutive away wins for the first time since Round 27 last season, which incidentally was against City.

United have won the second most fouls in the competition this season with 395.

Guillermo Amor’s men have hit the woodwork on 13 occasions this campaign, which is twice more than any other side in the Hyundai A-League and six more times than their Victorian opponents.

Reds centre-back, Dylan McGowan, leads the league in most goals scored by a defender this season, scoring three times for the South Australians.

Adelaide’s defensive stalwart, Taylor Regan, delivered another solid performance, making one interception and a team-high seven clearances against Perth Glory last weekend.

Star midfielder, Isaias, was successful in eight of his 16 duels and won three of his four tackles against the Glory last time out.

Adelaide United will face Melbourne City in Round 26 of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season on Friday, 7 April at AAMI Park. Kick-off is at 7.20pm ACST.
