Tomorrow night, 7:30pm, NPL Northern NSW team Broadmeadow Magic will host NPL Victoria’s Bentleigh Greens in Round of 16 of the FFA Cup at Magic Park, Broadmeadow.

The occasion marks the furthest Broadmeadow have progressed in the FFA Cup in their four appearances, and have rested star players, James and Luke Virgili and Shane Paul, in preparation for tomorrow night’s big fixture.

If Magic can muster a victory it will stand as the furthest an NPL Northern NSW side has ever progressed but the Greens pose one of the toughest challenges they will have faced.

Bentleigh currently sit in second place in the NPL Victoria and recently took out the prestigious Dockerty Cup in July this year.

The NPL Victoria club also holds the achievement of qualifying for the Semi Finals of the FFA Cup in 2014, and will once again be hopeful of being there again having caused a major upset by defeating Hyundai A-League side Wellington Phoenix in the Round of 32 prior.

This match will also see former Edgeworth Eagle Brody Taylor return to the ground where he previously won two NPL Northern NSW Championships – one of which was actually against Magic – but the home side have their fair share of experience too across the park including in-form forwards Kale Bradbery and John Majurovski who both scored in their Round of 32 victory of Canberra FC.

The winner of this match will progress to the Quarter Finals, with the draw to take place following the second matchday on Wednesday 29th August.

 

The official hashtag for the match is #BMMvBGR.
