Prediction

Match Preview


Chasing a third straight home win for the first time in three years, Adelaide look to keep increase their stranglehold on finals football against the struggling Roar on Saturday night.

Eleven points clear of the sixth-placed Jets, the Reds can break into the top four for at least 24 hours if they can prevail against Brisbane, with City set to face Sydney FC on Sunday.

Adelaide started the season with a bang by beating Sydney to win the FFA Cup, and they’ve maintained a solid if unspectacular level over the course of the season, rarely setting the world on fire but doing more than enough to comfortably lock down a top six position.

However, they will have to keep their foot on the pedal for the challenge of Brisbane, who proved last week that they haven’t given up hope this season.

Despite being 17 points adrift of a finals spot with just one win from 16 games this season, Brisbane gave their fans something to cheer about last week when they incredibly scored two goals in the 92nd and 96th minute to snatch a late draw with the Wanderers.

The two teams played out a fiery encounter earlier this season at Coopers, with Adelaide coming out on top by a 2-1 scoreline. Only once in their last 21 A-League games have ended in a draw, and with Brisbane failing to win in their last 10 games away from home, it’s looking like another victory for the Reds on Saturday night.
