Having qualified for another home semi-final after our third top-two appearance in only four seasons, we now have to wait to see who we will face.We have a good record in knockout matches at home, astonishingly having never conceded a goal in six matches (two Hyundai A-League semi-finals and four knockout Champions League matches).
See below for a run-down on who we might face and how it could come about.
With Adelaide United finishing first, they will play the lowest ranked winner from this week’s elimination finals. We play the highest ranked winner.
Brisbane Roar – finished third
If Brisbane Roar defeat Melbourne Victory on Friday night then we will play them as they will be the highest ranked winner. It’s as simple as that.
Melbourne City – finished fourth
We will play Melbourne City provided they defeat Perth Glory on Sunday only if Melbourne Victory defeat Brisbane Roar. If City win but Brisbane Roar defeat Melbourne Victory, we will play Brisbane.
Perth Glory – finished fifth
If both Melbourne Victory and Perth Glory win their matches, we will play Perth Glory. If Perth win but Brisbane Roar defeat Melbourne Victory, we will play Brisbane.
Melbourne Victory – finished sixth
No matter what happens we will not play Melbourne Victory. As Victory finished in sixth position, if they win they will be the lowest ranked winner and will travel to Adelaide for their semi-final.
