Melbourne Victory vs Brisbane Roar FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Melbourne Victory remain winless even after five matches into the A-League 2017-18 campaign after only managing a 1-1 draw with Western Sydney Wanderers. Victory were reduced to 10 men as early as in the 24th minute when Mitchell Austin was sent off for a second yellow card. Oriol Riera took advantage by scoring the opening goal in the 32nd minute, but Thomas Deng’s equaliser in the 49th minute provided a major surprise. Brisbane Roar were involved in a goalless draw with Central Coast Mariners. The two teams could not be separated over the course of the 90 minutes.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Recent meetings between Victory and Brisbane Roar have been dominated by the former with three wins in the last four. However, the last two matches for both clubs have finished as a draw. They have been going through a poor run of form at the start of the season, and both are still waiting for the first victories. I would bet on this game to end up as a draw. Brisbane Roar have had a poor defensive record this season and they have conceded nine goals in the first five. Victory have also been going through a similar poor performance with no clean sheet in five. I would go with both teams to score.

Melbourne Victory Preview

Melbourne Victory were able to reach the finals of the A-League and almost win the title by beating Sydney. However, the club has fallen way off the pace in the 2017-18 A-League campaign after struggling to get the first win of the season even after five matches. Such a poor start to the campaign sees Victory in the seventh spot of the table with only three points from the first five games. Besart Berisha had a huge contribution with goals last season but the 32-year-old has only one goal in three league appearances this season. Leroy George is the leading scorer at the club with two goals in five.

Melbourne Victory Team News

There are no injuries or suspensions coming into the match for Melbourne Victory.

Brisbane Roar FC Preview

Brisbane Roar come into the match still searching for the first victory of the season. Yet, there have been positive signs in the last two matches with the team taking draws against Wellington Phoenix and Central Coast Mariners. These results are a major improvement compared to the start of the season when the club last three consecutive matches. Still, it is not good enough to even match last season’s finish – let alone improve on the same. The recent match against CCM provided Brisbane with the first clean sheet of the season, and it is a step in the right direction for a club that has conceded nine goals in the previous four matches. Massimo Maccarone is the top scorer for the club with three goals in five.
