Brisbane Roar look to extend a 15-game unbeaten run against Central Coast Mariners when the two sides square off in A-League Round 8 action on Saturday.

Brisbane vs Central Coast kicks off at 5.00pm AEDT at Suncorp Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


A spot in the top six is on the line as the Roar and Mariners do battle in the first of two A-League games on Saturday.

Central Coast currently occupy sixth position on the ladder following their drought-breaking 1-0 victory over Western United last week.

The Mariners kept their first clean sheet in 39 matches and also claimed their first home win since April, firing themselves into the top six in the process.

It’s still early days, but Central Coast appear an improved side under Alen Stajcic, but they must continue to win games like this one if they are to challenge for the finals.



Meanwhile, Brisbane have been extremely inconsistent to start the season.

Before a 4-3 win over Melbourne City two weeks ago, Brisbane hadn’t scored a goal since Round 1, while they couldn’t back up their big scalp over City, losing 2-1 to Wellington across the ditch last week.

Nevertheless, Brisbane could find themselves in the top six by beating the Mariners, again highlighting just how easy it can be to go on a run in the A-League if you can string quality performances together.

It’s shaping up as a very even contest. The Mariners are looking strong, while Brisbane have shown they can compete with the best when they are firing. I’m going to need to see more from both these teams before I can confidently back either of them…

Match Odds


Brisbane Roar - $1.73
