Level on points in the upper echelons of the A-League standings, Sydney FC and Adelaide United square off at the Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Tuesday.

The Reds head into the game on a three-match losing streak against the hosts and will be seeking to end this dry spell.

Sydney FC returned to winning ways in style as they cruised to an emphatic 5-0 victory at Central Coast Mariners on Saturday.

They have now won five of their last eight games since March 3, while losing twice and picking up one draw.

With 31 points from 23 games, Sydney FC are currently third in the A-League table, level on points with Tuesday’s visitors in fourth place.

Like the hosts, Adelaide United ended their winless run last time out as they beat Macarthur 1-0 on home turf.

Prior to that, the Reds failed to taste victory in four consecutive games, picking up one point from a possible 12.

While Adelaide United will look to keep the juggernaut rolling, next up is an opposing side who have won each of the last three meetings between the teams since April 2021.

Sydney FC vs Adelaide United Prediction

With both sides level on points in the standings, we expect a cagey affair with little goalmouth action. Sydney FC have been solid at home of late and we predict they will come away with all three points and extend their streak against the visitors.
