MATCH SUMMARY

 

Both sides will be looking for improvement following their opening round efforts. Brisbane were particularly lacking some penetration against Melbourne City in their Round 1 clash and marquee man Massimo Maccarone will need some quality service if he is to bang in the goals. With injuries still a concern and visa issues for Eric Bautheac, John Aloisi will have his work cut out over the next few weeks. Adelaide aren’t in a better spot having looked ordinary in the opening exchanges against Wellington last week and now have to travel to Brisbane in a seriously long trip over opening two weeks of the campaign.

 

3 KEY POINTS

 

  • ADELAIDE UNITED had the worst away record of any team in the A-league last season (1-4-8)

 

  • BRISBANE ROAR had the third best points differential when playing at home in 2016/17 (+11) – only Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory were better

 

  • Brett Holman and possibly Luke DeVere will be welcome additions to Brisbane’s line-up this week

 

 

THE HISTORY

 

Brisbane see Red!

 

  • Adelaide has won three of the past six against Brisbane with one draw thrown into the mix

 

  • Brisbane’s two wins during this span have been by a combined score of 7-0

 

  • Playing the Overs might be the way to go here as there is an average of 3.33 goals per game scored over their past six clashes

 

 

PREDICTION

 

Brisbane Roar

  • We are prepared to give Brisbane Roar the benefit of the doubt here especially since the match is at Suncorp Stadium. A tough road trip for Adelaide to get things underway this campaign may put them on the back foot early and with Brisbane being a dangerous home side, the parochial Queensland crowd may be enough to get the Roar home.

 

HALF-FULL DOUBLE


DRAW / BRISBANE ROAR

  • Expect a tight one in the first 45 minutes with the Roar to get on top of things in the second half

 

FIRST GOALSCORER

Massimo Maccarone

  • The former Serie A hitman is Brisbane’s main man up front
     

TOTAL GOALS OVER OR UNDER

 

OVER 2.5

  • Get on the Overs all day as clashes between these two usually end up as goalfests
