2:05PM AEDT, AAMI Park
Contesting what was a 0-0 draw at Coopers Stadium, Adelaide United shocked Melbourne Metropolis, stifling final seasons double trophy victors to simply 4 photographs on course all through your entire matchup. Joe Gauci was the hero for the house facet, because the 21-year-old rising expertise was a rock on the again for the ‘Reds’, making 4 unimaginable saves, one among which he thwarted Jamie Maclaren from close to point-blank vary.

His Japanese counterpart and opposition Striker Hiroshi Ibusuki severely outshone him, and he was devilishly unfortunate to not sneak the ball into the again of the web early on.
