Central Coast Mariners vs. Wellington Phoenix FC
PS4 – KyrenFIFA 2 – 1 Fweshest
There were surprising scenes with last week’s results where we witnessed KyrenFIFA’s Team Of The Year David De Gea outshine the rest of the competition. There will be an inkling that he may be able to pull it off again.
XBOX – StrawhatCamelz 2 – 2 Justmanutd12
We’ve seen these two players finish confidently with late goals last week and both be looking to out finesse their opponent with wonder goals. It’s sure to be a very close match.
Prediction: CCM will earn the 3 points on aggregate (4 – 3)
Brisbane Roar FC vs. Newcastle Jets FC
PS4 – Ol_Mate_ 2 – 2 BLFifa
This will be BLFifa’s first appearance in the E-League after missing last week’s game but he may give Ol_Mate_ a run for his money after having struggled against another surprise performer in MouadZwed last week. It could prove to be a very close knit game this week.
XBOX – Cripsy 2 – 1 Bossierhickory8
Coming off a confident victory against Victory’s Mitch Austin, we could see Cripsy replicate that very strong showing against Hickory. But as we witnessed last week, anything can happen in FIFA.
Prediction: Brisbane Roar will win 4 – 3 on aggregate
Melbourne Victory vs. Adelaide United FC – The PRO players vs. the E-Pro players
PS4 – MouadZwed 2 – 3 vDreaMz—Shooter
After the shock win over ol_Mate_, MouadZwed, who may be the competition’s biggest surprise package, will have a lot of eyes on him to see if he can replicate his second-half performance from last week. With that in mind, vDreaMz—Shooter may prove to be too strong in this tie.
XBOX – MitchAustin 1 – 3 FUTWIZ Jamie
A 90th minute equaliser was the only thing that stopped Jamie from earning what should have been a comfortable win in last week’s fixture. FUTWIZ Jamie will not want to another draw this week and will come out all guns blazing against Mitch Austin in this round.
Prediction: Victory will be unable to get the job done with Adelaide winning 3 – 6 on aggregate.
Perth Glory vs. Melbourne City FC – The most anticipated tie
PS4 – Saisanas 3 – 4 Joshingwood
The round to watch.
The most anticipated game.
Both after very strong performances from both players last week, and with their playing styles in mind; this will be an absolute goal-fest.
Will complacency cost Saisanas in this match? Or will JoshingWood carry his second half performance from last week into this game and dominate from the get go?
XBOX – Highfly 1 – 2 MarcusGomes (SoccerStar00777)
If MarcusGomes’ counterpart in Joshingwood does provide a buffer coming into this game, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Highfly to gain any control in what will be a very high-possession and controlled game. However, if Highfly can manage to get goals early the heat will be on MarcusGomes to close out the tie.
Prediction: Melbourne City to walk away with all 3 points after an action-packed round, 6 – 4 on aggregate.
Sydney FC vs. Western Sydney Wanderers FC – The Sydney Derby!
PS4 – xMarkoHD 3 – 1 Rdoublett
Arguably the favourite for the competition on the PS4 side, xMarkoHD will be confident of producing a strong a dominative performance to earn a result in this game.
XBOX – Samer96_ 2 – 0 OhNoAGoat
Samer_96 provided a very strong defensive performance in last week’s fixture, and again he will look to his defensive abilities to carry him through to the victory and gain the three points for Sydney FC.
Prediction: Sydney will be too strong and finish with an aggregate win of 5 – 1.
