Westfield FFA Cup Quarter Finals – MD2 Preview

The final two semi-finalists in the Westfield FFA Cup 2017 will be determined on Wednesday evening when Hyundai A-League heavyweights Western Sydney Wanderers venture to Lily Homes Stadium in Seven Hills to take on Blacktown City FC, and two Member Federation clubs collide on the Gold Coast.

Tony Popovic’s Wanderers will be aiming to make Club history on Wednesday evening by qualifying for the Westfield FFA Cup Semi Finals for the first time, however Mark Crittenden’s men will be out to secure another sizeable scalp in this year’s competition against the team that represents their region in the Hyundai A-League.

Wanderers made their way to the Quarters Finals of this year’s Westfield FFA Cup after defeating Wellington Phoenix in the Round of 32, and PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues (PS4 NPL) Victoria Grand Final winners Bentleigh Greens in the Round of 16.

Blacktown booked their place in the Quarter Finals after ousting Central Coast Mariners in the Round of 32, then PS4 NPL New South Wales rivals APIA Leichhardt Tigers in the Round of 16.

Wednesday night’s match at Lily Homes Stadium is officially a sell-out, however fans won’t miss a minute of the action on FOX SPORTS given the game will be shown LIVE and EXCLUSIVE from 7:30pm.

Wanderers players celebrate one of their four goals in the big win over Bentleigh Greens.

While Blacktown and Western Sydney battle it out for a Semi Final berth, the fourth and final Westfield FFA Cup 2017 Quarter Finals match will be being contested in Queensland between Gold Coast City FC and South Melbourne FC.

FOX SPORTS will stream Gold Coast’s game against South Melbourne LIVE and EXCLUSIVE from CBUS Stadium in Robina via www.foxsports.com.au, and provide regular crosses to the action in Queensland from their Blacktown broadcast.

South Melbourne made the last eight of this year’s Westfield FFA Cup after winning twice on home soil in the Rounds of 32 and 16 against Edgeworth Eagles FC and Sorrento FC respectively.
