Prediction

Match Preview


A-League football will be staged in Redcliffe on Sunday afternoon as Brisbane look to get their campaign off and running against competition leaders City.

It’s been a dire start to life in the A-League for Robbie Fowler, with his side yet to register a win across the first six rounds, while they haven’t scored since their Round 1 draw with Perth - and that goal came in the 95th minute.

Brisbane have gone 270 minutes without finding the back of the net, and their challenge only gets tougher when they face City, who are having no such problems in the goal-scoring department after surging to the top of the ladder.



After a 0-0 stalemate with Victory in their season opener, City have scored 10 goals in their last five games, including six in their last two wins over Central Coast and Wellington.

Even after losing Jamie Maclaren to injury, City keep banging in the goals, with Curtis Good, Rostyn Griffiths and Adrian Luna getting on the scoresheet last week against the Mariners.

With four wins in their last five A-League matches against Brisbane, City will be confident of continuing their brilliant start to the season.

For Brisbane, their primary objective will be finding some way to score a goal, with the last time they went four games without finding the back of the net coming back in 2006.

Melbourne City - $2.40
Brisbane Roar - $2.90
