- Sydney FC beat Perth Glory 3-0 at Allianz Stadium
- The VAR controversially overturned two disallowed Sydney goals
Sydney FC advanced to the A-League grand final after downing Perth 3-0 in a drama-filled semi at Allianz Stadium. The Sky Blues’ record-breaking season was on the line in front of 21,938 on Saturday night, and they didn’t disappoint against a confident Glory side that couldn’t quite match the class of the premiers.
The video assistant referee (VAR) played a prominent role, overturning two disallowed goals to help Sydney to a 3-0 lead at halftime, a scoreline that proved more than enough to set up a May 7 season-decider against either Melbourne Victory or Brisbane Roar.

- Adelaide United 1-1 Perth Glory at Coopers Stadium
- ‘Yeah, it’s a pen,’ says Kenny Lowe as Castro penalty riles Adelaide fans
Perth Glory’s Diego Castro has kept his A-League side’s top-four ambitions flickering with a stage-dive penalty in a 1-1 away draw with Adelaide United. Castro scored after earning a penalty in an act which riled Adelaide and their parochial home crowd at Coopers Stadium on Friday night.
Perth remain fifth, three points shy of fourth-placed Brisbane and third-placed Melbourne City ahead of weekend fixtures. After United’s Dylan McGowan headed the home side to the lead, Castro equalised having collapsed as a result of slight contact from the Reds defender.

- Sydney FC 3-0 Perth Glory at nib Stadium
- Wellington Phoenix 5-0 Newcastle Jets at Westpac Stadium
Sydney FC have celebrated winning the A-League Premiers’ Plate in style with a decisive 3-0 victory over Perth Glory at nib Stadium on Sunday. An own goal on 38 minutes from Glory debutant Lucian Goian, Brandon O’Neill’s sweet strike three minutes later and a Bobo goal in the 63rd minute sealed an 18th win of the campaign for Sydney.
Having secured the first-past-the-post title after Brisbane Roar defeated Melbourne Victory on Saturday night, the Sky Blues are now an astonishing 14 points clear at the top of the table. Their total of 59 points is a record for a 27-round A-League season. With three rounds remaining before the finals, Sydney could break Roar’s record for a 30-round campaign of 65 points.

- Melbourne Victory 4-1 Perth Glory
- Result temporarily extends race for Premiers Plate
Melbourne Victory overwhelmed Perth Glory 4-1 in a high-quality encounter to cement their grip on second spot on the A-League ladder and temporarily extend the race for the Premiers Plate. Kevin Muscat’s men hadn’t beaten the Glory in their past eight A-League attempts but were thoroughly deserving winners at AAMI Park on Saturday night. The result means Sydney FC will have to wait another week at least before they are mathematically assured of top spot.

- Western Sydney Wanderers 0-0 Adelaide United
- Wellington Phoenix 3-3 Perth Glory
It was a new night but the same old struggles for Western Sydney, whose A-League finals ambitions are no healthier after they were held to a goalless draw by lowly Adelaide. A highly contentious disallowed goal denied the Wanderers a win they so sorely craved after Tuesday night’s 5-1 Asian Champions League disembowelling by Shanghai SIPG, and leaves their top-six spot at risk of being snatched away by Newcastle.

A-League should be gearing up for all-action climax to the season, but the absence of hype is demoralising and momentum is being lost
Living near Australia’s east coast, the first thing I do in a morning is pour myself a steaming hot mug of bias. This fuels the daily search for A-League news, which consists of an exhaustive trawl through sources from Victoria all the way to New South Wales. But today, to my surprise, I was confronted by a disturbance in the force, the unavoidable presence of Perth Glory.
Under the cloak of west coast anonymity Glory have won four of their past six matches to move level on points with fourth-placed Melbourne City, just two behind next week’s visitors to nib Stadium and occupants of the third and final Asian Champions League qualification spot, Brisbane Roar. During this run Glory have scored at least twice in every match, culminating in the season’s biggest shellacking on Friday night.

- Perth Glory 5-0 Adelaide United at Coopers Stadium
- Diego Castro pilots thrashing with two-goal performance
Perth Glory maestro Diego Castro orchestrated a 5-0 belting of a demoralised Adelaide United in Friday night’s A-League match. Castro scored two goals, set up another for Andy Keogh and featured in the lead-up to Adam Taggart’s score as Perth climbed to fourth spot.
Adelaide can’t slip any lower on the ladder – they’re dead last – but they plunged to fresh, dark depths in a ramshackle display at Coopers Stadium. The loss was Adelaide’s biggest on home soil, eclipsing their 0-4 result just seven weeks ago against Sydney FC.
