This will be Sydney FC’s seventh and final A-League game at its home away from home this season, Jubilee Oval. The Sky Blues have made Jubilee, also known as Kogarah Oval, their primary home ground this season while Allianz Stadium is being rebuilt. They started their tenure at Jubilee in disastrous fashion, losing to Melbourne Victory and Wellington Phoenix. But they’ve won their last four at the ground and will be looking to farewell it with another win.

Sydney FC are riding a six-match winning streak against Melbourne City, with City’s last victory against the Sky Blues coming way back on March 5, 2016. City have been in middling form away from home this season, recording 10 points from eight games.
