Round 20 of the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s competition has arrived and the stakes couldn’t be higher for the league’s 10 teams.
Only three weeks remain in the regular season and the battle for a spot in the finals has reached boiling point.
Results at this stage can make or break a season and this round features a number of crunch matches. This week’s Match of the Round features league leaders Blacktown City and third placed Rockdale City Suns.
Sydney United 58 FC v Sydney Olympic FC, 4pm Sunday at Sydney United Sports Centre
Sydney United 58 host Sydney Olympic on Sunday with both teams desperate to clinch a finals spot.
With only three weeks to go the pressure is building on last season’s Premiers to cement their participation in the postseason and a victory at home against a struggling Olympic outfit is the first step.
A 5-0 win against Parramatta sure helped United 58’s goal difference but it won’t be as easy against Olympic.
Olympic has been on the slide in recent weeks and fell out of the top five for the first time this season last week after defeat at the hands of APIA.
A win against their rivals is imperative if they are to save their season.
