2018 Hyundai A-League Finals Series – Preview & Odds

by Ken Edwards, 12 April 2018

The 2017-18 Hyundai A-League is coming an exciting finish with the final series to shortly begin. The A-League is unique and innovative in World Soccer as the league as adopts the very Australian system of a final series and a Grand Final to decide a champion (just like AFL, NRL and Netball).

Can Sydney FC defend its title or can one of the upstart title challengers like the unheralded Newcastle Jets or the Melbourne Victory climb the title mountain?
