Mexico vs Matildas in Texas

After sealing qualification to the Paris Olympic Games at the end of February, our CommBank Matildas will head to the United States to take on Mexico on Wednesday, 10 April at 1000 AEST.

Tony Gustavsson will be looking to fine tune his squad with their first Olympics showdown just under three months away.

He will only be able to submit an 18 player squad which means that some big names will most likely miss out on selection.

A-League: The Deciding Month

April will be a crucial month in the Isuzu UTE A-League Men as we finish the regular season and ultimately decide who will make the cut for finals football in May.

The first Saturday of April, we have a top of the table clash on our hands as Central Coast Mariners host Wellington Phoenix at 1730 AEST live on Paramount+.

The two sides have met just the once this season, with neither side able to hit the back of the net at Sky Stadium back in February.

Whoever comes out on top in this battle could ultimately seal the premiership.

Straight after that match in Gosford, there is the prime time 10 Bold fixture - the Melbourne Derby.

City are on the cusp of the top six while Victory are still in with a chance of finishing in the top two.

We will be hoping to see goals on this occasion with both previous meetings this season ending in 0-0 stalemates.

Fast forward to Saturday, 13 April where we will be heading to Allianz Stadium for the Sydney Derby - Live and free on 10 Bold and 10 Play.

Ufuk Talay's Sky Blues swept aside Wanderers in their previous encounter but the tally does stand at one a piece with Marko Rudan's getting the better of their rivals in this same fixture earlier in the campaign.

This match could have quite the bearing on the composition of the top six, with the winner potentially sealing finals football at the expense of their opponent.

Keep an  eye out for Western Sydney the following Saturday as they face off against Melbourne City for the first time since that harrowing 7-0 thumping a few weeks back.

Meanwhile, Macarthur host the Sky Blues in Saturday's 10 Bold fixture while Sunday's FTA match sees Adelaide United travel to the Mariners.

We can look forward to a 10 Bold double header for the final round on Saturday, 27 April. First up we will have the F3 Derby with the Jets hosting Central Coast at 1715 AEST.

Following on from that clash, Victory host Wanderers at 1945 AEST while Sunday's FTA fixture has Perth Glory making the trip to Sydney FC.

Victory's win was enough to see them climb into the top six at the expense of Wanderers.
