A-League Premiership on Line at AAMI Park
Perth won 3-2 in the first match between these sides in the 2018-19 A-League season, also played at AAMI Park. That match was the second in a two-match Victory losing streak to open the season. In the 15 rounds since, both teams have lost only once: Victory lost 2-0 at Adelaide United on January 9, and Glory lost 2-1 at home against Sydney FC on December 21.
This match could present a fascinating contrast between attack and defence. In their last four games, Victory have scored 13 goals and conceded six. Over the same period, Glory have scored five and conceded none. In fact, Glory goalkeeper Liam Reddy hasn’t conceded a goal for 373 minutes.
