Adelaide United coach Coolen wary of talented Melbourne Victory squad

Rini Coolen is well aware how much talent the Melbourne Victory squad possesses.

The Adelaide United coach will guide his side in their final regular season match against the Victory at Adelaide Oval tonight and he knows that it will be a difficult encounter for his men.

Victory are currently placed fifth on the table and cannot move up or down (provided fourth-placed Gold Coast United do not lose heavily) but Coolen knows they will be a tough side to beat once the finals series begins.

"They have good balance, a good defensive line and good midfielders and have a couple of players who can make the difference in the transition moments," Coolen said.

"So they have a really good team.

"They are preparing themselves for the finals as well ... if everybody is available, if everybody is fit for them, they have a chance to win the grand final, that is how good that team is."
