Melbourne City v Brisbane Roar


Friday 7.50pm




The A-League finals series bursts to life at AAMI Park on Friday night as Melbourne City hosts Brisbane in a showdown for a spot in the final four. After a horror start to the season, Brisbane’s purple patch towards the end of the campaign was rewarded with a backdoor entry into the finals courtesy of its 3-2 away win against Perth last week coupled with Western Sydney’s home defeat to Adelaide. The Roar will enter this match with some confidence given that they have won five and drawn another of their last eight games.


But City has every right to be confident too. Forget last week’s loss to Wellington, when the Melbourne boys had nothing to play for. Prior to that defeat in Wellington, City had won three straight games to reclaim third spot. Just as important going into this one is the fact that City has only lost once to Brisbane at home – and that was in their first ever match-up at AAMI Park way back in 2010. In nine games since at the venue City has won six times and drawn the other three. And that stat alone will be enough to give punters enough confidence to back City to win their way through to a semi-final against Newcastle next Friday.


Best Bet: City win @ $1.85


Value bet: Under 1.5 (over/under goals) @ $4.70
