MATCH SUMMARY

The Roar have gone for the big guns in their match with the Victory this weekend. Danish midfielder Thomas Kristensen returns to the side after a long layoff with injury while teammate, and former Victory player, Fahid Ben Fhalfallah will add some much needed experience to the home side. Brisbane go into the match having played out a nil-all draw with Wellington last week. Melbourne Victory were stunned last week when they dropped a rare match at home to Adelaide 2-1.

 

3 KEY POINTS

  • MELBOURNE VICTORY are ranked seventh in the A-league for defence

 

  • BRISBANE ROAR have kept consecutive clean sheets going into this match

 

  • Thomas Kristensen’s return from injury provides a huge boost for the Roar

 

THE HISTORY

A man for the occasion

  • Besart Berisha has scored in four of the past five games against Brisbane

 

  • Four of their recent clashes have ended in one-goal margins

 

  • These teams met a month ago when they shared the spoils 1-1

 

Win-Draw-Win

BRISBANE ROAR

  • We are tipping the home side to get the win here. The inclusion of Kristensen is a huge plus for John Aloisi’s men who have sorely been missing the classy midfielder for the opening 10 rounds of the competition. While he won’t be match fit, we are banking on his influence in the middle of the park to give Brisbane the spark they are desperately seeking. Mark Milligan is missing for the Victory who are yet to look anywhere near like the kind of team that pushed Sydney FC to the limit last season.

 

HALF-FULL DOUBLE
BRISBANE / BRISBANE

  • The Roar could come out of the boxes quickly and be hard to catch after that

 

FIRST GOALSCORER

MASSIMO MACCARONE

  • The Italian is the Roar’s leading goalsocrer this season

 

TOTAL GOALS OVER OR UNDER

UNDER 2.5

  • History between these sides suggests that goals could be hard to come by
