WWL Grand Final Preview: Sydney v Brisbane Roar
They meet again!!!
The Westfield W-League 2011 Grand Final is here and everyone should be experiencing a little case of déjà vu, as this match happens to be a rematch of last season-s Grand Final!
If past meetings between these two powerhouses are anything to go by, we are all guaranteed an entertaining exhibition this Saturday.
Perhaps it would seem fair to say that Sydney are favourites heading into the match due to recent form; however, that wouldn't take into account the fact that they both have a win apiece from their clashes this year. Nor, more importantly, would it take into account the fierce rivalry that exists between them.
Also, certain aspects of both teams- games have changed since last year-s epic final, including the rise of stars and the addition of others!
Kennya Cordner and Lisa De Vanna have further strengthened an already more than capable strike attack for the Roar, which makes Brisbane dangerous at any stage of the game.
On the other hand, Sydney-s strike duo Leena Khamis and Kyah Simon have scored 20 goals between them and it doesn-t, based on their comprehensive Semi Final performance, look like they will be pumping the brakes anytime soon.
We could continue to break down and examine the stats and past performances leading into Saturday-s match, but it wouldn-t bring us any closer to figuring out a winner—it will be totally dependant on what each team brings on the day!
This is the pinnacle of women-s football in Australia and will showcase some of the best female footballers this country has to offer, so get yourself down to Campbelltown Stadium this Saturday to witness it first hand!
If you can-t make it to the game don-t fret, this highly anticipated match can also be viewed live and exclusive on ABC 1 at 3pm EDST.
