Oakleigh Cannons will play host to Sydney FC at Jack Edwards Reserve in the Australia Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Oakleigh Cannons began their journey in the round of 32, crushing Bonnyrigg White Eagles 5-0 to qualify for the round of 16. They overcame the Brisbane City challenge after a fiercely contested game that ended in a penalty shootout which went in their favor 5-3.

The Cannons are set to take on one of the strongest teams in the country. Sydney are a top tier A-League side while Oakleigh Cannons compete in the regional NPL Victoria. Despite that, coach Chris Taylor believes it’s not the final chapter of their fairytale campaign.

Sydney FC had a shaky start following a 3-3 draw against Central Coast Mariners which was decided by a penalty shootout, won by Sydney 3-1. In round of 16, the Sky Blues edged Bentleigh Greens 2-1 to set up a date with Oakleigh Cannons in the quarterfinals.

Sydney have won the Australia Cup once, in 2017, and have been runners-up twice alongside a record four A-League titles. They come into the clash as outright favorites but facing Oakleigh Cannons at Jack Edwards Reserve could level the playing field.

We are unsure whether the 4,000 capacity crowd at Jack Edwards Reserve can unsettle Sydney, who are used to playing in front of 10 times that many supporters.
