Teams in the A-League may just have sneaked into double figures of matches played but there has been plenty of excitement about and thankfully it appears that this season may not be as predictable as some suspected it might be.
Sydney Remain Top, but the Title Race is Close
Currently last year's champions Sydney FC are sitting at the top of the table, however there are still plenty of games left to play and thankfully they haven’t quite run away with it just yet. With back to back wins away to Western Sydney Wanderers and an invaluable home win against Melbourne City, things are certainly looking good for Graham Arnold’s side.
Despite their recent loss to the league leaders, Melbourne City’s Bouzanis is confident that his side still have what it takes to give Sydney FC a real run for their money and believes that they can keep hot on their tails and even overtake them in the coming weeks.
Currently Melbourne are nine points behind and sitting down in third but even with the recent 3-1 defeat at the hands of the league leaders returning keeper Bouzanis insists his team can bounce back despite that particular result really denting their hopes of picking up this season's title. As he has mentioned, there are plenty of games still to play and a lot of points still up for grabs.
What Else is Happening in the League?
Elsewhere in the league Perth Glory continue their climb into fourth spot thanks to a late win in Brisbane this week. Perth managed 2 goals in quick succession towards the end of their away visit to the Suncorp Stadium.
They came from 1-0 down to snatch victory 1-2 from the home side in a thrilling end to the match. And most fans would have been very happy had they put a few dollars on that outcome over at AustralianCasinoClub.
The quick turnaround was mostly thanks to the return of Andy Keogh, who was back off the bench after missing a trio of games due to a groin injury. His re-pairing with teammate Diego Castro worked perfectly and the pair did everything they could to try and turn the game around.
It took until the 80th minute for it to happen with a goal from Keogh, which had been set up by Castro. And it was just a couple of minutes later that we saw the winning goal put in by Castro, which had been handed to him by his complimenting teammate.
Unfortunately for Kenny Lowe’s side it wasn’t all good news as Xavi Torres, another player who had picked up a recent groin injury, was not as lucky as Keogh.
Torres appeared to re-injure himself during the game and it looks like he’s managed to tweak his groin once more which could see him out of upcoming matches.
