We’re reached round seven in the Foxtel National Youth League, which isn’t a surprise given the season is so short: ten rounds in total with every team receiving two byes, so effectively eight games per club.
In Conference A, Brisbane Roar Youth are at the top of the table on ten points with second placed Adelaide United and Perth Glory trailing just three points behind. It’s a tight race despite Roar Youth atop. Melbourne Victory occupy the bottom of the table, with Melbourne City just two points ahead of them.
In Conference B, the group leaders and the reigning National Youth League Champions, the Western Sydney Wanderers, have given themselves a three point lead ahead of their cross-town rivals Sydney FC. Arthur Diles’ team have registered four wins in just five games and are giving themselves the best chance to book their ticket in the final once again, however Sydney FC have conceded the least amount of goals this season and that could play into their favour.
