Brisbane Roar FC vs Melbourne Victory Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Brisbane moved into the top six of the A-League 2017-18 table, but they dropped more points at home after a goalless draw with Wellington Phoenix. The best chance of the game fell to substitute Corey Gameiro, who failed to take advantage of a golden opportunity in the 88th minute when put through on goal. Melbourne Victory still remain winless at home after a 2-1 loss against Adelaide United. Babacar Diawara’s was cancelled out by Mark Milligan in the second half, but Adelaide restored the lead through George Blackwood in the 72nd minute. The team held on for a win despite being reduced to nine men in the final 10 minutes. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Brisbane have not done well in meetings with Melbourne Victory after managing just one win in the last six. Yet, John Aloisi’s team have home advantage for this game. Melbourne Victory have been equally inconsistent this season and have suffered two defeats in the last three games. On the road, the only positives for Victory have been the wins against Perth Glory in Wellington Phoenix. The reverse fixture back in November saw both teams play out a draw. I would go with a repeat of the same.

Brisbane have struggled this season purely due to lack of goals, but they are up against a Melbourne Victory outfit that has conceded at almost two goals per game on the road. Even though Brisbane did not create a lot of chances against Wellington, the team has come up with a goal per game on an average against Victory. I would go with Brisbane to score over 1.5 goals.

Draw – 5/2

Brisbane Roar FC Preview

Brisbane Roar continue to struggle with inconsistencies, but moving into the top six places is a positive for the club in the short-term. Sustaining this position now becomes the key for the club, although a push for the top four places cannot be ruled out with Adelaide United only four points ahead. Brisbane are crucially helped by a run of four games at the Suncorp Stadium in the next five A-League matches. Brisbane are amongst the lowest scorers in the division after coming up with 12 goals – the same as Adelaide and Perth Glory – in the first 10 matches. Massimo Maccarone is Brisbane’s top scorer with four goals in 10 games.

Brisbane have a fully fit squad available for the game.

Melbourne Victory Preview

Despite starting the A-League 2017-18 campaign with aspirations of going one better than last season, Melbourne Victory have struggled with form and consistency so far. As a result, the team finds itself sitting outside the play-offs and already several points behind the top two places. Victory need to fire the form as early as possible in order to avoid missing out on the latter stages of the competition. Majority of the problems for Victory have stemmed from scoring just 13 goals in the 10 league matches, while the team has conceded 16 – no team in the top six can match this defensive record. Manager Kevin Muscat has rights to be concerned with Besart Berisha’s form, as the centre forward is top of the scoring charts at Victory but with only four goals.

Melbourne Victory Team News

Mitch Austin (cruciate ligament) is the only concern for Melbourne Victory.
