FIFA Oceania Club of the 20th Century South Melbourne take on reigning A-League Men champions Melbourne City at Melbourne Sports Centres – Lakeside. The blockbuster Round of 32 FFA Cup clash, under Friday night lights, is the return of Cup Football in Victoria after the COVID lockdown break.
Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has shown his support behind his old club South Melbourne, hoping the former NSL heavyweights can upset A-League champions Melbourne City in Friday night’s FFA Cup event at Lakeside Stadium.
Postecoglou, who has been named the Scottish Premiership’s manager of the month as he continues to spur the Hoops, sent a video message of encouragement to South Melbourne, whom he coached to NSL titles in 1998 and 1999 and the Oceania Club Championship in 1999.
