Sydney United 58 have won a showdown with 2021/22 A-League Champions Western United following their comprehensive 3-0 victory over ACT outfit Monaro Panthers at Edensor Park in the Australia Cup Round of 32 clash played on Wednesday evening.
The attacking trio of Patrick Antelmi, Chris Payne and Kyle Cimenti did enough to earn the United 58 boys a date with John Aloisi’s side in what will be a bumper crowd at the Sydney United Sports Centre.
Sydney United 58 remain the only Football NSW representative side remaining following the exits of the Bonnyrigg White Eagles, Wollongong United and NWS Spirit FC.
It wasn’t all smiles in Queensland for David Perkovic’s NWS Spirit FC side who were overrun by Football Queensland outfit Peninsula Power as the League One team bowed out 4-1.
Ironically both United 58 and NWS Spirit FC will be meeting in this Sunday’s Waratah Cup Final at the Blacktown City Sports Centre at 1pm with each team chasing its first piece of silverware in 2022.
The match schedule for the Round of 16 of the Australia Cup 2022 will be released over the coming days, with the latest news, updates, and ticket information available from the official Australia Cup website.
