Australia’s fiercest football rivalry will take place once again as Western Sydney Wanderers will play Sydney FC in the FFA Cup semi-finals.
The Wanderers will host the Sky Blues at Panthers Stadium in Penrith on October 6 for a place in the FFA Cup final. Both Sydney sides were in action last week as the remaining two quarter finals were wrapped up yesterday.
Bentleigh Greens are the only non-A League team at the semi-final stage of the competition following a closely fought victory over fellow minnows Heidelberg United. Greens, who previously reached the semi-final stage of the competition in 2014, left it late with Jacob Alexander taking his side through with a goal in the 87th minute.
The game was low on chances but Heidelberg had a chance to equalise but a goal-mouth scramble ended in the arms of goalkeeper Ryan Scott.
Greens will take on Adelaide United after they dispatched giant-killers APIA Leichardt.
The APIA fairy-tale can to a stunning end after Craig Goodwin, who continued his streak of scoring in every round of the FFA Cup, put Adelaide 1-0 up with a superb solo strike.
Mirko Boland struck a second less than ten minutes later as APIA were sent packing after a memorable cup run.
Greens will host their A League opposition at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex in Cheltenham on October 5.
