Sydney United 58 FC v Blacktown City FC

3:00 pm, Saturday 8 April, Sydney United Sports Centre

Sydney United 58 take on Blacktown City at Sydney United Sports Centre in the early kick-off on Saturday.

Sydney United 58 were blown away by a blistering first half from Rockdale Ilinden in round nine going into the sheds at halftime 3-0 down.

Patrick Antelmi pulled a goal back for United in the second half, but the damage had already been done.

Coach Miro Vlastelica will be without Ante Bakmaz for this weekend after he received a red card against Rockdale.

Blacktown claimed a 2-0 win over Sutherland Sharks last Sunday following two goals in a nine-minute period in the second half.

Mario Shabow found the net six minutes after halftime before Jak O’Brien scored his ninth of the season on the hour mark.

The result moves City ahead of Sydney United on goal difference into fourth.

The scores were tight between these two teams last season as they each claimed a narrow win.

Sydney United edged past Blacktown 2-1 in round five, but Blacktown returned fire in round sixteen with a 1-0 victory.

With the teams level on points so far in 2023 and two close scorelines last year, Saturday’s clash is a must-watch.
