In our weekly player comparison A-League infographics we take a look at two of the league’s finest players as Adelaide United host reigning champions Melbourne Victory on Friday night.
Adelaide United attacker Sergio Cirio is pivotal to his team’s chances of success this season.
The Barcelona-born forward has technical ability in spades and can play in a variety of attacking positions.
With a decent return of seven goals from 14 games, the 30-year-old will be desperate to improve that record and continue to loads of chances for his teammates.
On the other hand, one of his opponents for the opening match of the round, Besart Berisha is the most lethal striker in the league.
The Albanian is a ferocious competitor that polarising opinion in the Australian football community, but make no mistake he’s a top class player.
Scoring roughly a goal each two games, Berisha will again be the man to mark for the blockbuster round one clash.
Bitter rivals, you can always expect a fiery encounter and over the journey Victory hold sway with 18 wins to United’s 10, while there’s been eight draws.
