Brisbane face Perth on Sunday

Perth Glory attempt to maintain their competition lead when they take on Brisbane Roar to conclude A-League Round 11 action on Sunday night.

Roar vs Glory kicks off at 7.00pm AEST at Suncorp Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


Coming into the round with a three-point lead over Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC at the top of the ladder, Perth will be determined to start the new year with a bang against Brisbane and maintain or possibly extend their gap.

Glory have been the stand-out team heading into 2019, winning seven of their 10 games and losing just once to Sydney FC. Tony Popovic is enjoying a dream start to life as Perth manager and they head into this showdown on the back of a thumping 4-1 win over the Mariners on New Year’s Eve, with Fabio Ferreira and Andy Keogh each grabbing a brace.

With a clash against Sydney FC coming up mid-week, three points against a Brisbane side that has just won one game all season is a must if Perth want to keep enjoying life at the top of the A-League mountain.

Meanwhile, it’s been a dismal season for the Roar in 2018/19, with the club sitting in second last position with just one win from 10 games.

It could have been even worse for Brisbane mid-week if Newcastle hadn’t squandered a truckload of chances in front of goal, with the Roar twice coming from behind to earn a 2-2 draw and keep their slim hopes of recovering to make the finals alive.

Brisbane could leapfrog the Wanderers if they can upset the competition leaders - and they do have a great record on their own turf against Glory, losing just three times in 20 games. But, this is a different Perth outfit and Brisbane haven’t struggled like this for a while - it would be a surprise if Glory dropped points on Sunday night.

Match Odds


Perth Glory - $2.50
Brisbane Roar - $2.80
Draw - $3.10

Stats


  • Glory won just three games out of 20 visits to Suncorp
