Perth started with a bang last week against the Mariners, but after leading 3 – 0 they had to settle for a 3 – 3 draw. That result will feel like a loss to the Glory and you’d expect them to bounce back here. Phoenix faces the toughest road trip in the league and did not do enough last week to suggest they can secure a win a long, long way from home.
Sportsbet odds: Glory $1.67, Phoenix $5.00, draw $3.75.
