If it only seems like a couple of weeks since we last crunched a batch of Sydney FC-related stats, that’s because it was.
But don’t despair, we’ve dug deep to unearth some more numerical nuggets to get you ready for Wednesday’s trip to Netstrata Jubilee Stadium…
On The Mark

Glory are on 83% and the Sky Blues on 85%, while Macarthur FC lead the way on 85.1%.
Glory’s leading scorer Bruno Fornaroli has found the net six times in his 12 career appearances against Sydney FC.
But the Uruguayan has only been on the winning side in one of those fixtures.
Sydney FC have an identical record at home and on the road so far this term.
