Ins & Outs for Saturday’s Sydney Derby


Tony Popovic has named his squad for Saturday’s Hyundai A-League Round 15 match against Sydney FC at Allianz Stadium.

Four players have been added to the side with Scott Neville returning from injury and youth Foxtel National Youth League striker Abraham Majok promoted to the side.

Captain Dimas is set to make his return after serving his one-game suspenion while new signing Terry Antonis will be hoping to make his debut for the Red & Black after again being included in an extended squad. 


Defender Aritz Borda will miss the next three matches following his dismissal in last week’s clash against Melbourne City, as Brendon Santalab sits out the final week of his three-game suspension. 

Saturday will be the second time the cross-town rivals meet this season with the Wanderers looking to bounce back from the defeat in Round 1. 

The match is primed to sell-out on the back of Round 1’s Hyundai A-League record attendance of 61,880.
