Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets FC

Sydney FC always has big ambitions. Captain Del Piero will lead the team and try to achieve a better result than last year when they finished only at the 7th place.

Reinforcements for this season (Matthew Jurman, Predrag Bojic, Corey Gameiro, Marc Warren, Richard GarcĂ­a, Nikola Petkovic and Nick Carle) will definitely help to achieve a better result.

Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney Wanderers

Definitely the first derby of the season, at least as far as results from last season will play Central Coast Mariners and the Western Sydney Wanderers.

The home team has lost Bernie Ibini-Isei (Shangai SIPG - € 380,000), but the arrival of several quality and experienced players will make them more dangerous team, as well as a candidate for winning the title this season.

The winner from last season will certainly try to defend the title which will not be at all easy.

Probably coach Anthony Popovic adhered to the saying: "Do not change a winning team" so that as far as the team has not been much change.

Came to club: Dean Heffernan, Tomi Juric, Brendon Santalab and Matthew Spiranovic and leave the club Rocky Visconte, Joey Gibbs, Tarek Elrich, Dino Kreszinger and Reece Caira.

Melbourne Victory FC vs Melbourne Heart FC

Clash of city rival in Melbourne definitely wears her beauty. Although the table from last season makes local composition favorite, Melbourne Heart FC will not surrender because some reinforcements from Europe's top leagues as Harry Kewell make up composition a lot more dangerous than last season.

Came to club Orlando Engelaar, Iain Ramsay, Stefan Mauk, Massimo Murdocca, Harry Kewell, Rob Wielaert, Tando Velaphi, Aziz Behich, Patrick Kisnorbo, Michael Mifsud and Andrea Migliorini.

Melbourne Victory FC this season to target the position as last season, if not a step more. First home game against city rivals have a chance to open the season well and give them the necessary confidence.

Reinforcements like Pablo Contreras and James Troisi would certainly wish some European clubs because this tandem, the quality of the game will rise to a level higher.

Adelaide United FC vs Perth Glory FC

Two teams from the middle of the table will look for a chance at each meeting to provide more points in order to fight the AFC qualification.

Adelaide United FC has a chance in front of the home crowd to win the big three points to make continuation the competition was easier. The lineup has not changed much.

Perth Glory FC last season ended on the 6th place but this season should prove much more because A-League is getting stronger every season and a lot of clubs with bigger appetites want to move forward.

Wellington Phoenix FC vs Brisbane Roar FC

Two teams that will play the last match of the first round are Wellington Phoenix FC and Brisbane Roar FC.

The club that wants to prove that the position in the standings from last season should be forgotten is the Wellington Phoenix. Bringing quality players like Carlos Hernandez and Jeremy Brockie and other reinforcements gives them the right to hope for much much better result this season.

Brisbane Roar FC is not accidentally took a position in the top half of the table last season, so they will want to start the new season open with victory.
