Bringing you your stats fix, courtesy of proud partner Oxford, but in a new format.
Let’s look at the head to head stats between each club, next up is our opponents for our July 17th restart, the Wellington Phoenix.
The Sky Blues and Phoenix first met in the Hyundai A-League in Round 4 of Season 2007/08, on September 14, 2007. Played in Sydney, it was the New Zealanders who claimed the three points, with a penalty from Daniel in the 29th minute the decisive strike in their 2-1 win.
In total, the two clubs have met 40 times across the Hyundai A-League and Finals Series, with Sydney FC winning 22 games, drawing five and losing 13 of those encounters.
The Sky Blues have scored 73 goals against the Phoenix, conceding 48 in the process, with the breakdown seeing 44 of those goals scored at home and the remainder away from home.
Former Sky Blue Bobô and current Sky Blue Kosta Barbarouses have scored the most goals against the Kiwis, finding the back of the net seven times each, while Barbarouses also holds the most assists against his former club with six.
Matches against the Phoenix are usually tight affairs, however the Sky Blues hold the largest win in the fixture, defeating the yellow and black 7-1 at Allianz Stadium in 2013, with Italian Alessandro Del Piero putting on a masterclass scoring four goals in the process.
