Round 10 in the Futsal Premier League 2 Open Mens competition offers up some more tasty matchups to enjoy across the weekend. All four games should provide a buffet of futsal and plenty of points up for grabs. Let’s get onto the preview.

SD Raiders Futsal vs APIA FC Futsal, Saturday 18 November, 4:50pm, Thomas Hassall Anglican College

SD Raiders Futsal host APIA FC Futsal in their game down at Thomas Hassall Anglican College on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts were featured in the Match of the Round last weekend, beating Sydney Futsal Club 6-2 at NC of Indigenous Excellence.

They will want to avenge their heavy loss to APIA FC Futsal back in Round 3 and hold onto second spot on the FPL2 Open Mens ladder.

The combination between Ramiz Goria and Charles Abou Serhal highlighted their win and the duo will be keen for an encore on Saturday.

APIA FC Futsal bounced back in style with their 6-1 win over Raiders Futsal Club on their travels to Sydney south-west.

Mark Symington once again was on target for APIA FC Futsal with his hat-trick and has dealt in bunches in his appearances for the side.

The visitors can leapfrog SD Raiders Futsal if they get three points on Saturday and help cement their spot in the top four.

South Coast Taipans vs Phoenix Futsal Club, Saturday 18 November, 5:10pm, Illawarra Hockey Centre

South Coast Taipans welcome Phoenix Futsal Club to Illawarra Hockey Centre for their game on Saturday night.

The Taipans head into this game after their comfortable 8-4 win over West City Crusaders last weekend in Windsor.

They head back to Illawarra Hockey Centre after two weeks on the road and hope to add to their lead at the top of the FPL2 Open Mens competition.

The hosts will look towards both Giovanni Pannucio and Matthew Mazevski to spearhead their charge on Saturday night.

Phoenix Futsal Club will be full of energy after their 7-3 win over Sydney City Eagles at Morris Iemma Indoor SC last weekend.

Jordan Smylie has been in good form since rejoining the club scoring nine goals in his four games and aiming for more on Saturday.

The visitors will look to get their first back-to-back wins of the season and get themselves off the bottom of the ladder.

West City Crusaders vs Sydney City Eagles, Saturday 18 November, 6:30pm, PCYC Hawkesbury

West City Crusaders take on Sydney City Eagles in their game down at PCYC Hawkesbury on Saturday night.

The hosts will look to bounce back after their 8-4 defeat to leaders South Coast Taipans on their home pitch last weekend.

Despite their loss, Crusaders hold onto fourth spot on the FPL2 Open Mens ladder and want to hold off the chasing pack.

Stuart Gosling was a bright spot in the defeat with a pair of goals and he will look to add further to his tally on the weekend.

Sydney City Eagles hope to get back on track after their 7-3 loss to Phoenix Futsal Club at Morris Iemma Indoor SC last Saturday.

The Eagles on their day can be a tough team to beat and if they bring that to Windsor in Round 10 they should go home with three points.

Both Bruno and Patrick Antelmi lead the goal scoring for the Eagles and will be vital to their success in the next few games.

Sydney Futsal Club vs Raiders Futsal Club, Sunday 19 November, 3:20pm, NC of Indigenous Excellence

Sydney Futsal Club face off against Raiders Futsal Club at NC of Indigenous Excellence on Sunday afternoon.

They will be looking to get back in the win column after their 6-2 loss to SD Raiders Futsal in last weekend’s Match of the Round.

Sydney Futsal Club showed in the first half they can hang with any team and will want a full performance on Sunday.

Dilan Perez will lead the way for Sydney Futsal Club in this game and try to add to his tally of three goals thus far this season.

Raiders Futsal Club also were on the losing side last weekend in their 6-1 defeat to APIA FC Futsal at their home pitch.

Currently they sit in fifth spot outside the top four and three points could boost them back into contention on Saturday.

They will rely on the work up top of Tomas Medimurac and Jovan Miladinovic to propel them towards a positive result.
