Sydney FC vs Brisbane Roar FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Sydney FC did not waste too much time returning back to winning ways, as they beat Newcastle Jets 2-1 to go top of the table. Milos Ninkovic scored after just five minutes to provide Sydney with the lead, while Bobo came up with the second goal just before the hour mark to put the hosts in a commanding position. Even though Newcastle did pull one back through inform Dimitri Petratos, it was not enough to get anything out of the game. Brisbane Roar beat Melbourne City 3-1 to register the first win of their A-League 2017-18 campaign. A brace from Avram Papadopoulos and a goal from Eric Bautheac were able to make a 54th minute goal from Stefan Mauk as a consolation. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Despite the dominance over the A-League in the last few years, Sydney have been able to get just one victory in the last six meetings against Brisbane Roar. A reason for this struggle is the return of just six goals in these six matches. Sydney have struggled for goals with the team failing to score more than 2.5 goals in any of the last six league matches. Brisbane may have conceded 11 goals, but the team has conceded more than 2.5 goals only once in the last five matches. I see value in backing this game to witness Sydney scoring less than 1.5 goals. This is a game which could be a candidate for a low scoring affair, as both teams have not been perfect by any stretch of the imagination. While Sydney have managed a decent return of 11 goals so far, Brisbane have netted only nine the first seven matches. I would back under 2.5 goals in this game.

Sydney to score under 1.5 goals – 6/5
Total goals under 2.5 – 43/40

Sydney FC saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Sydney FC Preview

Sydney showed signs of wobble in recent weeks after drawing against Western Sydney and losing against Central Coast Mariners. While the team were able to get a much-needed victory over Newcastle Jets, it was a win built on two major errors from the opposition. Sydney will have to do a lot more convincing in order to be considered as overwhelming favourites for the league title. While the club had the best defence last season by a significant margin, Sydney have kept just two clean sheets in the last five league matches. Bobo has contributed five out of the 11 league goals scored by Sydney this season.

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

Brisbane Roar FC Preview

A first victory of the season will do wonders for the confidence of Brisbane Roar, even if it comes after seven matches into the season. Brisbane certainly are feeling the effects of Jamie MacLaren not being with the squad, as the incredible goals from the forward was a key factor behind the club finishing in the third place of the table. He contributed 44% of the team’s goals last season. Brisbane have scored only nine goals this season, when the team has conceded a relatively disturbing 11 goals. Massimo Maccarone and Avram Papadopoulos are now the joint top scorers at the club with three goals each.
