Goals look on the cards in the early Sunday morning A League clash (BT Sport).
Brisbane Roar v Perth Glory - Sunday 06:00, BT Sport ESPN
Brisbane picked up their first win of the season at the Mariners, which will be a relief for John Aloisi after his side were thumped 4-0 at the Jets. Perth, meanwhile, have responded to letting a 3-0 lead slip against the Mariners on the opening day with wins in their last two, including a 3-2 win at City last time out.
Brisbane will be glad to get back to the Suncorp Stadium where they have a W11-D3-L1 record since the start of last season. When hosting top-half sides they’re W5-D2-L1 in that period in games that have tended to produce goals as both teams have scored in the last six.
Since Perth have managed just one away clean sheet since the start of last season, we expect there to be plenty of goals and are backing Over 3.5 Goals at 2.62, which has landed in six of Brisbane’s last eight at home. Whilst Perth won five of their final seven away at the end of last season, they were all against bottom four teams, and so we’d question their ability on the road, but the form of their win at City in their only away game this term looks very solid. With Brisbane normally an excellent team at home, their price looks about right at 2.2 and so we’re going to avoid the match outcome markets and stick with ‘overs’.
