Telstra

 

Sydney FC face the Wellington Phoenix on July 17th, in their first match back following the postponement of the Hyundai A-League due to COVID-19.

The Sky Blues will be out to ensure their record against the Kiwi’s remains unblemished in 2019/20, with a win and draw to Head Coach Steve Corica’s men already this term.

Sky Blues’ midfielder Luke Brattan and his Phoenix counterpart Cam Devlin will no doubt have a say in proceedings, with both proving influential to their side’s patterns of play.

Let’s look at the ‘Tale of the Tape’ between the two midfielders.

Despite a three games played difference between the pair, the stats are hard to split.

Brattan boasts a higher tackle success rate from fewer tackles attempted, while his 15 key passes underlines his important to the Sky Blues’ forward play.

Always plucky in a tackle, Devlin’s higher duel success rate shows his tenacity to win the ball back, while the youngster is slightly more accurate with his passes.

It’s sure to be an entertaining encounter next month, with these midfielders sure to play their part in deciding where the points will be returning to.
