ALW Permutations: It’s going down to the last day

With one round left to play in the A-League Women’s season, it’s all to play for as we head to Perth to take on the Glory in a Premiership-deciding Sunday afternoon of football.

Thursday night’s 1-1 draw between Central Coast Mariners and Western United, means we are guaranteed a top two finish.

Ahead of the final day of fixtures, we take a look at the equation.

If we win, and Sydney FC lose or draw…

IF Sydney FC drop points at home to Melbourne Victory on Sunday, a win over Perth Glory will see Dario Vidosic and his team crowned 2023/24 A-League Women’s Premiers.

It’s all to play for in the Big Blue, and we’ll be hoping our arch rivals can get a result against the reigning Champions and give us a chance to play for the Premiership.

If we draw, and Sydney FC lose…

IF we draw with Perth Glory, and Sydney FC lose, the ladder will be decided by matches won followed by goal difference.

In this situation, both teams will finish with 11 wins for the season, therefore the deciding factor will be goal difference.

As we are five goals behind Sydney in goal difference, we’d finish the regular season in second position, unless they suffer a heavy defeat.

If we win, and Sydney FC win…

IF we defeat Perth Glory, but Sydney FC is also defeats Melbourne Victory, we will finish the season in second position.
