This Thursday, July 13, 2017 (2:30 AM Pacific) Sydney FC will host Arsenal for a friendly match at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney, Australia. Both teams are considered very strong sides in their respective leagues and should provide an enticing duel.
Sydney FC had a spectacular 2016-2017 campaign being crowned champions for the second time in their history in the A-League. Several key players that are still on the squad had an important role in that championship run like the Brazilian forward, Bobo, who scored 15 goals during A-League play. Other notable players on the team include the captain, Alex Brosque, who scored 11 goals last season and Serbian forward, Milos Ninkovic, who scored nine goals last season. The home team does have an intriguing roster that should be able to give Arsenal a competitive game.
Arsenal is coming off a very disappointing 2016-2017 EPL campaign, finishing in fifth, missing out on Champions League football for the upcoming season. Alexis Sanchez is being heavily rumored with an exit of the London club, especially with the recent arrival of French Striker, Alexandre Lacazette. Another recent arrival at Arsenal is the Bosnian full-back, Sead Kolasinac from Bundesliga side, Schalke 04.
It will be interesting to see if either of the fresh signings get a chance to play in this game along with some youngsters on the squad like Alex Iwobi and Jeff Reine-Adelaide. Arsenal should be able to win this game, even if Arsene Wenger decides to start bench or reserve players. The game should be an intriguing encounter, especially with the chance of seeing Alexandre Lacazette playing with the Gunners for the first time.
