The hosts look worth backing to maintain their excellent home record.
Brisbane Roar v Melbourne City - Friday 08:50, BT Sport 1
After the disappointment of losing 4-0 at the Jets, Brisbane have bounced back with their first wins of the season at the Mariners and at home to Perth last time out. Meanwhile, City made it three wins out of four as they beat Adelaide 2-1 at home and as a result sit in 2nd behind Sydney.
Brisbane have picked up four points from their two home games so far and are now an impressive W12-D3-L1 at the Suncorp Stadium since the start of season, with last season’s champions Adelaide the only team to beat them.
City have won both their road games so far this term but those were at bottom of the league Wellington and in the Melbourne Derby at the Etihad Stadium. Indeed, when travelling to top-six sides last term City were just W2-D2-L4, including a 3-1 defeat at Brisbane themselves, and neither are they at full strength as the important Nicolas Colazo will sit this one out. With that in mind, John van't Schip’s side look too short at 2.4 given Brisbane’s excellent home record and so we’re siding with the hosts Draw No Bet.
