W-League Match Preview: City v Sydney


Revenge will be on Sydney FC’s mind when they take on Melbourne City on Friday evening in a re-match of the Westfield W-League 2017/18 Grand Final.

City won that encounter 2-0 thanks to goals from Jess Fishlock and Jodie Taylor, however City go into Round 2 second last on the table following a surprise 2-0 loss to Canberra United in their season-opener.

Sydney FC, on the other hand, could not have started the season in better form.

A brace to Caitlin Foord, as well as a 3-0 win over their arch rivals Western Sydney Wanderers, means Sydney FC are the form team of the competition at this early stage.

Expect quality, ferocity and a whole lot of action at AAMI Park on Friday night. Kick-off is at 5.20pm AEDT.
