Tonight we have a Sydney derby of a different kind as Blacktown City host Sydney FC in the quarter finals of the FFA Cup.
The Wolf is predicting a Sydney FC WIN and clean sheet.
Blacktown were involved in the most memorable match of the tournament this season, a 6-2 win over Sydney United 58, with 4 goals coming in extra time after the scores were locked at 2-2.
Antelmi was the star with a hat trick while former A-League regular Mitch Malia also got his name on the score sheet.
Sydney FC have surprised The Wolf with how they have looked but Graham Arnold’s intentions to build from the back have definitely worked thus far. The additions of Wilkinson and Zullo have paid immediate dividends as they have maintained clean sheets in both their wins to date.
The Sky Blues will control the tempo in this one and Blacktown will not have what it takes to break down the Sky Blues.
Sydney will play a very controlled tempo early on and will look to prevent Blacktown from playing on the counter by starving them of possession. Dimitrijevic and Ninkovic were brilliant against Perth and will again dominate in the middle of the park. Sydney FC 2-0.
