Melbourne Victory have forgotten what it is like to win, but they get the chance to put that right when Brisbane Roar visit Marvel Stadium on Saturday night. 

Victory v Roar kicks off at 7.50pm AEST at Marvel Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia

Prediction


Match Preview


Melbourne Victory's premiers plate hopes have been dashed by a run of four games without a win in the A-League and Saturday night's clash with Brisbane Roar could be a pivotal point of the season.

It is now a six-game winless run in all competitions for Kevin Muscat's side with the four A-League games accompanied by two defeats to start Victory's AFC Champions League campaign including a 2-1 loss at Sanfrecce Hiroshima on Tuesday night.

A 2-0 defeat against Newcastle Jets two weeks ago saw Melbourne slip to 10 points behind ladder leaders and four adrift of Sydney FC in second spot, and Victory need to end the winless run against Roar if they are to challenge for a top two finish.

Second from bottom Roar have been trading wins and losses in recent weeks but they come into this game after a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Adelaide United last weekend.

The bad news for Roar fans is their poor record against Victory with Brisbane having won just two of the last nine meetings. Melbourne won 4-2 and 5-0 in the two previous meetings this season and they should complete the clean sweep.

Match Odds


Melbourne Victory - $1.38
Brisbane Roar - $6.80
Draw - $5.00

Stats


  • Melbourne Victory won both previous meetings this season
