Perth Glory will be hoping to bounce back from a poor opening to their season with victory in the FFA Cup semi-final against Melbourne City.
Kenny Lowe’s side are still the only team without a point this season after two games following the side’s loss to Wellington Phoenix.
Garcia was sent off in that match and thus will miss out on the side’s semi-final clash against his former side.
At this point last season, Perth topped the table and were on their way to dominating the league up until the New Year.
If both Melbourne sides win their respective final games, the final will be at Etihad in early November.
Perth Glory have placed a bid to host the final also, and will argue the fact that they did not receive the opportunity of hosting the previous final.
