Description: ADL Vs SYD Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Sydney losing control of top spot with the club in the midst of a two match losing spree.
The restart of A-League has thrown up some real surprises our way with team’s failing to acclimatise themselves with the gruelling fixtures and league leaders Sydney have not been adverse to the plight either. Defeated 2-0 by second placed Melbourne City the last time around, the top of the table side currently finds itself having slumped to two straight defeats in the league.
While the defeats have not hindered the side’s stronghold on top spot with the team still a healthy 8 points clear of second place, the bygone results are set to have caused panic in the team’s ranks. Their unabated march towards the glistening trophy have been put the leashes on with the side no longer being held as the invincible outfit many had touted it as.
Sydney will be hungry to not only reclaim their moniker of outright favourites but also get back to winning ways today when the side goes to take on Adelaide United. It’s a clash which will allow the side to come across a paper thin defensive unit, a backline the league’s most electric attack will be looking to pummel and rattle across the 90 minutes.
ADL Vs SYD Dream11 Probable Winner
They might constitute of the worst defence in the league but despite that, Adelaide United have been one of the most impressive side’s in the league since the restart. Unbeaten since the league has resumed, the side has gone onto break into the top 6 with its rejuvenation helping rekindle the team’s chances of making it into the playoffs.
The side’s new found resurgence will see them make things a traversity for a dwindling Sydney side today. However, the Adelaide’s crumbling defence will be the side’s undoing with the team going onto register a defeat on the day.

Dream 11 Picks
In an 8 goal thriller, goal-keepers hardly find mention. However, one your display is handed out plaudits despite letting in three goals, you know you have a gem at your hand with Paul Izzo providing his mettle in a match winning display
Sydney might have gone onto be hit for goals in their last two defeats but that does to disguise the fact that the side still remains the side with the most stringent defence. This responsible and well disciplined backline has allowed a frugal 21 goals past it all season long, a figure which only made it prudent to see us opt for a triad from the club.
Protecting the integrity of the side’s goal are Joel King, Alex Wilkinson and Ryan McGowan to see all of them be cajoled into our outfit for the encounter.
Its not only the defensive side of Sydney’s game which has been responsible for the side nailing down top spot in its favour. The team’s attack has been equally alluring with the side having torched its way to a behemoth 46 goals to take on shape as the most impeccable attack in the competition.
And when this rampant attack takes on the league’s worst defence, Sydney are set to go on a rampage and school Adelaide United. It’s a backline Milos Ninkovich who already has the five goals and three assists is going to love taking on to make him the first pick from the side.
The diminutive and dynamic duo of Anthony Caceres and Alexander Baumjohann join up, two names who have been quiessential to the side’s soiree this campaign. On the other hand, his sparkling 10 goals and 5 assists make top scorer Riley McGree a must have pick from Adelaide United for us.
We have Ben Halloran come up as well from the side with the player having provided the one goal and one assist for the club in his last two encounters.
He’s scored in every match since the restart of the league and it was his goal the last time around as well that saw Adelaide United to pull off a stunning 5-3 win against Perth Glory to make the team’s striker, Kristian Opseth a must have pick for the outing. Adam Le Fondre will make a foray into our side from the visiting team with the player having struck an enchanting 18 goals for his side this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The second highest scorer in the league, Adam will captain our side for today while Opseth is our vice-captain.
