Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
City have a perfect opportunity to jump right back into fourth place with a win over the team that leapfrogged them in Round 17.
Adelaide’s miracle comeback over Brisbane was enough to vault them up the ladder but if United don’t back it up this weekend it will be all for nought.
History is not on Adelaide’s side here with City unbeaten in the last five meetings between these teams, winning four of them.
