Five matches are currently scheduled for this weekend's A-League Women Round 7.
For the first time since the A-League Women Round 2, all ten teams are scheduled to play this upcoming weekend. While several squads have confirmed positive COVID-19 cases within their sides, none have had enough players out to warrant postponements.
A-League Women Round 7 schedule

The seventh round of the 2021-22 A-League Women continues with Sydney FC topping the ladder by a four point lead. Even with a game in hand, second placed Melbourne City could not top Sydney should they win and the Blues loose this round.
At the other end of the ladder, Wellington Phoenix and Canberra United are both looking for their first win of the season. Phoenix's game against eight placed Roar may give them the best opportunity for a win so far this season. Canberra on the other hand will have a more difficult game in comparison, coming up against the flying Sydney FC.
Newcastle Jets and Perth Glory have confirmed COVID-19 cases within their teams, which means both sides will face each other with reduced playing squads. Seven Matildas players will be absent after having been called up for international duty ahead of the Asian Cup.
Entering this Round Hannah Wilkinson continues to lead in the scoring ladder with eight goals this season. Mackenzie Hawkesby is close behind with five goals this campaign. She also leads the assist ladder, having assisted four goals this year.
The full schedule is listed below. Entering Round 7 the ladder is as follows:
