Sydney Olympic FC v Blacktown City FC
4:00 pm, Saturday 1 July, Belmore Sports Ground
Sydney Olympic play Blacktown City on Saturday at Belmore Sports Ground in another crucial game for the teams.
Olympic managed to grab a 3-1 win against Western Sydney Wanderers last Saturday which was their first win since round 15.
Michael Vakis gave Olympic an early lead before the side conceded in the 82nd minute.
Experienced former A-League Men’s attackers Fabio Ferreira and Roy O’Donovan each scored in what remained to rescue the points.
It’s pushed Labinot Haliti’s men eight points clear of the relegation places and only three points away from the top half of the competition.
Blacktown made it three straight wins as they beat second-placed Marconi Stallions 3-1 last Sunday.
Goals to Travis Major, Grant Lynch and Carlos De Oliveira had the team 3-0 by the hour mark, guiding the reigning champions to victory.
The turnaround in form has seen City rise into the top four and ten points away from top spot.
City battered Olympic 5-1 earlier in the season with Major bagging a brace that day and they’ll look to take advantage of their still struggling opponents again.
