1200x630 futsal PL2 preview and review 2023 rd 6

Round 6 in the Futsal Premier League 2 Open Mens competition sees us hurtle closer towards the halfway mark where teams start to make their charge to the semi-finals. There are four games to enjoy this weekend across Saturday which should be filled with the usual action. Let’s get onto the preview.

Sydney City Eagles vs Sydney Futsal Club, Saturday 21 October, 4:10pm, Penrith Valley Regional SC

Sydney City Eagles host Sydney Futsal Club at Penrith Valley Regional SC in their game on Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles featured in the Match of the Round last weekend, losing 5-3 to Raiders Futsal Club at Thomas Hassell Anglican College.

They had the game in their control before a second half surge from Raiders Futsal Club and hope to put in a complete performance in Penrith.

Anthony Tomelic played his first game of the season in the loss and he will add another bow to the Eagles potent attack.

Sydney Futsal Club broke their drought with a 2-0 win over Phoenix Futsal Club at The Centre – Dural last weekend.

Buoyed by that win, the visitors will hope to make it back-to-back wins with an potential upset against the high flying Eagles.

The visitors will look towards goal scorers Omid Mokhtar and Dion Kellis to push them forward and add to their goal tallies on Saturday.

South Coast Taipans vs Raiders Futsal Club, Saturday 21 October, 4:20pm, Illawarra Hockey Centre

South Coast Taipans welcome Raiders Futsal Club for their game at Illawarra Hockey Centre on Saturday afternoon.

The Taipans come into this game with a four-game winning streak after a 6-3 win over SD Raiders Futsal at home last weekend.

They sit in equal first heading towards the halfway mark of the season and will look to lock themselves into a playoff spot quickly.

The hosts have shown off their scoring depth across the last four wins and will be aiming to continue that trend against Raiders Futsal Club on Saturday.

Raiders Futsal Club were winners in the Match of the Round after their 5-3 success against Sydney City Eagles at Thomas Hassell Anglican College.

The reigning champions have been in a sequence of winning one week then losing the next so they will want to start stacking up some wins.

One feature of their win over the Eagles was their defence. It held their opponents at bay and they will want a similar performance on their trip.

SD Raiders Futsal vs West City Crusaders, Saturday 21 October, 4:50pm, Thomas Hassell Anglican College

SD Raiders Futsal face off against leaders West City Crusaders at Thomas Hassel Anglican College on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts will be keen to bounce back in this game after their 6-3 loss to South Coast Taipans last weekend.

There is plenty of firepower in the SD Raiders Futsal line-up led by Matthew Barkho and Dimi Petratros up front.

SD Raiders Futsal sit just one win outside the top four and can push themselves back inside with a huge win at home this weekend.

West City Crusaders rose to the top of the FPL2 Open Mens ladder after their 8-4 win over APIA FC Futsal last weekend.

The Crusaders are back on the road after a two game homestand and will be keen to make it three wins on the spin in the south-west.

They are the top scoring side in the competition and hope to find the back of the net regularly on Saturday afternoon.

APIA FC Futsal vs Phoenix Futsal Club, Saturday 21 October, 6:20pm, Valentine Sports Park

Rounding off the weekend is APIA FC Futsal taking on Phoenix Futsal Club at Valentine Sports Park on Saturday night.

APIA FC Futsal will want to bounce back after their 8-4 loss to West City Crusaders at PCYC Hawkesbury last weekend.

They remain in third position despite the loss and look to get back into the winner’s circle which can help break up the log jam in the middle of the table.

The hosts will welcome back Italo Wanderley who has been a key performer for them this season and will be keen to find the back of the net.

Phoenix Futsal Club battled to a 2-0 loss in their game against Sydney Futsal Club at The Centre – Dural last weekend.

The visitors have started to show improvement in the last fortnight and have started to get some reinforcements to the squad as well.

If they can gel quickly, Phoenix Futsal Club can conjure up a solid performance and register their first points of the season.
