ADELAIDE UNITED TO HOST A-LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL

A-League: explore football

They’ve already won the Premiers Plate, but the Reds’ win over Melbourne City earlier tonight means they now have hosting rights for the A-League Final.

The Reds had fans concerned after a first half of dominance was not capped off with a go-ahead goal. But early in the second half fan favourite Bruce Djite put the home team ahead with a screamer from outside the box.

Adelaide would get their second via a penalty earned by youngster Kamau. Bruce Djite stepped up to the spot and duly converted. City weren’t going away though. Van’t Schip’s men manufactured their own goal, giving some hope to travelling fans. It was Nick Fitzgerald who met a cross with a crisp right foot – steering the ball into the far corner of the goal.

The Reds put Melbourne City out of their misery with Dylan McGowan volleying home a corner from barely six yards. At 3-1 Adelaide could have been forgiven for taking off their shooting boots but the Reds don’t do boring. Diminutive Spaniard Pablo Sanchez put an exclamation mark on things with his own volley to make it 4-1.

For Adelaide their were plenty of contributors, the pick of the bunch that weren’t on the scoresheet Sergio Cirio. The midfielder was a constant menace, finding space between the Melbourne City lines.

Manager Guillermo Amor has been on record preaching the harmony of the playing group. But the former Barcelona midfielder should take plenty of credit himself. The Reds have gone from bottom of the table after eight rounds, to Premiers Plate winners and A-League Finalists.

Next week Adelaide Oval plays host to the A-League Final and no matter who lines up against the Reds there is a sense of destiny in this squad. It just may be that Guillermo Amor transports Adelaide from small town wannabes, to fully fledged football mecca.
