Brisbane Roar FC vs Western Sydney Wanderers FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Brisbane Roar picked up a first win in three after a 2-1 success over Adelaide United at the Coopers Stadium. Fahid Ben Khalfallah punished a poor mistake from Adelaide with the opening goal in the 33rd minute, while Massimo Maccarone doubled the advantage just before the break. George Blackwood did capitalise on Matt Mackay’s red card in first-half injury time, as he came in with a goal in the 69th minute. However, Brisbane held on for a win. Western Sydney Wanderers beat Melbourne City 2-1 at the ANZ stadium. Ross McCormack opened the scoring in the 25th minute, but the home team produced a stunning two-minute comeback with goals from Oriol Riera and Mark Bridge.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Brisbane have had an excellent record when it comes to games against Western Sydney after winning the last three encounters. The latest of those victories came only at the start of December. Brisbane may have been poor in recent weeks, but the win over Adelaide – irrespective of the manner – is likely to provide confidence. Western Sydney are not a team to get many away wins under their belt. I would back a victory for Brisbane Roar. Massimo Maccarone has been able to come up with four goals in his last five appearances. Brisbane’s total goal tally stands at 16 for the campaign with Maccarone alone coming in with seven goals. Earlier in the campaign, Maccarone scored the opening goal when Brisbane came up against Western Sydney. I see value in backing Maccarone to score anytime. Brisbane Roar win – 6/4 Massimo Maccarone to score anytime – 21/20

Brisbane Roar FC Preview

Brisbane would consider themselves highly lucky to have come away with three points against Adelaide United, as the team largely profited from two key moments in the game. Adelaide put has been under tremendous pressure in the game. Still, John Aloisi will want his team to use the result as a building block towards further successes. The three points has lifted Brisbane closer to the play-off places and well away from Wellington Phoenix at the bottom, but the season will still be classified as a poor campaign if the club do not make a tilt for the top two places. Massimo Maccarone is the top scorer with seven goals in 13.

Brisbane Roar FC Team News

Matt Mackay is unavailable for the game due to a suspension. John Aloisi has the rest of the squad available for selection.

Western Sydney Wanderers FC Preview

Western Sydney Wanderers have been able to get some wins under their belt, as the club finally seem to put some challenge for the play-off places. The win over Melbourne City may have been impressive, but this was only the third success of the campaign for Western Sydney. Even after scoring twice against City, Gombau’s team remain as the worst scoring team in the division – a record that they now share with Central Coast Mariners. At the other end, the club has conceded a whopping 22 goals – placing them as third worst defensive team. Oriol Riera has now taken his goal tally to five after ending a five-game drought.

Western Sydney Wanderers FC Team News

Josep Gombau has a fully fit squad available for selection.
