Description: ADL Vs PG Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two stuttering sides take on each other in a bid to steady their ship and resume normal activity in the season.
Adjacent to each other in the league, for both Adelaide United and Perth Glory, today’s encounter could up being a defining moment in their season. At a time when both the sides have failed to traverse their way past troubled waters to be razed to the ground, today’s encounter offers a chance to take on a levelly balanced opposition.
In a dilemma back in March, the turnaround of three months hasn’t seen the side’s form change for the better. Although both began the restart of A-League 2019-20 with a win, either side ended up reverting to winless ways in their respective foregone encounters.
Currently three points ahead of Adelaide United, 5th placed Perth Glory can open that gap up to the six points today with a win along with having an extra game over their competitors. They might have gone onto lose their bygone outing 2-1 to second placed Wellington Phoenix but that result will hardly deter the side pulling off a performance that saw them placate a way superior opposition for large parts of the tie.
ADL Vs PG Dream11 Probable Winner
Adelaide United are making a foray into today’s tie having garnered momentum for a showdown against Wellington Phoenix as well. And they went onto better Perth’s showing with the home team coming up with a gritty and impressive 1-1 draw on the day to make it two unbeaten results after a torrid three match losing spin.
That showing will imbue confidence in the side and serve them well on the day but ultimately the side’s defence will end up leaking in an extra goal to Perth Glory.

ADL Vs PG Dream11 Picks
When Adelaide United took on Wellington, few in the league gave them a chance of survival in the first half, leave along the full tie. However, goal-keeper Paul Izzo had other plans up his sleeve with the shot stopper pulling off one of the displays of the season as he curbed Adelaide United’s carnage persistently without breaking into a sweat.
With a measly 24 goals allowed past them in 22 matches, Perth Glory have taken on the identity of the league’s finest defence outside of the top 2. This is a side bestowed with well endowed defenders, players who know what it takes to give opposition’s cold feet and occult the attacking forays made their way.
And we fancy them to keep a cleansheet today to see us roll in the side’s entire backline comprising of Ivan Franjic, Osama Malik, Juande Lopez and Alex Grant.
If there’s one player who can given even this guile filled Perth Glory defence a throbbing headache today, its Riley McGree. The player has profusely engaged his side in stupendous showings of attacking football to see him spearhead the side’s goal scoring ranks with a staggering 10 goals and 5 assists.
He is going to be joined up by the diminutive Ben Halloran who has been equally impressive and in fine touch with his 7 goals and 4 assists helping the side stay within distance of a spot in the playoffs. Perth Glory on the other hand will see us opt for Neil Kilkenny with the player having provided the two goals and four assists for his team this term.
We compensate for the attacking picks from Perth Glory in this ambit of our Dream 11 side by making their leading scorer, 12 goal man, Bruno Fornaroli a must have pick for the imminent encounter. With Adelaide United having shipped goals by the basketful it was only prudent to rope in three goal man Nick D’Agostino from the side as well with the two set to rip their opposition into shreds.
With two goals in his last two encounters to take his tally to 4 this season, Kristian Opseth will be bringing an end to our Dream 11 team for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 12 goals for Bruno will see him lead our side out as the captain while Riley is the vice-captain.
