Brilliant goals were sprinkled between a cagey opening night affair as Adelaide and Sydney shared the points.
Isaias 6.5 —
Well and truly one of the classiest midfielders the league has ever seen. Despite a lack of time on the ball, the moments he did have were ones to savour.
Mirko Boland 6 —
Was eager to get on the ball and looks an exquisite replacement for Daniel Adlung. Seemed to be on the end of every kind of rough challenge from a Sky Blue Player.
Vince Lia 6 —
Competitive in midfield, doing his job well.
Ryan Strain 6 —
Had a fairly solid game and was good in the moments he had on the ball down his flank.
Craig Goodwin 7 —
Played some excellent through balls and was at the heart of Adelaide’s best moments. Laid on the assist for Galloway’s opener.
Ben Halloran 6.5 —
Played up front and was relatively successful in an unfamiliar role, especially in linking up with Strain. At times he was left isolated in the number nine role, often dropping in to midfield to create something for his team.
Ken Ilso N/A —
The Danish ‘Zlatan’ was unlucky not to start but was given too few minutes to change the state of the game.
