FFA Cup: Round of 16 draw revealed

The Round of 16 draw for the FFA Cup has just been held...

Reigning FFA Cup holders Adelaide United will host fellow A-League club Sydney FC - who they knocked out of the Cup last year.

The other all-Hyundai A-League encounter will see Melbourne City host Wellington Phoenix.

Victoria v New South Wales rivalries will be taken to a whole new level with three clashes, including a David and Goliath encounter between Rockdale City Suns and A-league champions Melbourne Victory.

Plus there are two intriguing clashes between PlayStation 4 NPL heavyweights, with Victoria’s Heidelberg United and Hume City pitted against New South Wales clubs Sydney United 58 FC and Sydney Olympic respectively.

The Round of 16 draw sees three Member Federation v Hyundai A-League showdowns, two all-Hyundai A-League encounters and three all-Member Federation fixtures.

Brisbane’s Lions FC  will host last year’s finalists Perth Glory, while Palm Beach Sharks drew another home game, this time against reigning AFC Champions League winners Western Sydney Wanderers.

The remaining all-Member Federation match ups see PlayStation 4 NPL champions, MetroStars from Adelaide, hosting Oakleigh Cannons.

Former Socceroos Ante Milicic and Pablo Cardozo conducted the draw on the set of Fox Sports News in Sydney on Wednesday.

So this is the result:

Adelaide United v Sydney FC

Melbourne City v Wellington Phoenix

Heidelberg United (VIC) v Sydney United (NSW)

Hume City (VIC) v Sydney Olympic (NSW)

MetroStars (SA) v Oakleigh Cannons (VIC)
