Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne City Preview
The Best of the Day preview unpacks a crucial A-League assignment for Brisbane Roar, who host ladder-leading Melbourne City FC as the playoffs race tightens up.
The Roar are sixth on the A-League table with nine wins and seven draws from 22 games. They could jump as high as fourth with a victory here. On the other hand, there are three teams within three points breathing down their necks.
Brisbane snapped a three-game winless run on Friday, overcoming battlers Newcastle 2-1. James O’Shea scored the match-winner in the 73rd minute – just 12 minutes after his own goal had allowed the Jets to equalise.
Melbourne City have opened up a seven-point lead and already wrapped up the Premiers Plate. They’ve lost just one of their last 17 games, winning 13.
After being held to a 2-all draw by Wellington, City grabbed a 1-0 win over Central Coast on Saturday. Craig Noone scored the decisive goal in the 59th minute.
Jamie Maclaren holds an 11-goal lead in the A-League’s top scorer stakes, finding the back of the net an incredible 25 times. He is just two short of the A-League season record held by Sydney FC’s Bobo.
City dominate recent rivalry with Roar
Melbourne City have won six and drawn one of their last eight against Brisbane, winning the last three straight.
The clubs met for the first time this season just over two weeks ago, City prevailing 3-2 at home. The Roar pegged back a two-goal deficit to level the scores by halftime, but Scott Galloway found the 73rd-minute winner for City.
There’s a danger Melbourne City could take their foot off the gas with top spot in their keeping. But Patrick Kisnorbo’s side have been relentless – scoring 24 goals in their last eight games and conceding just eight – and shape as a top-value Best of the Day bet in Redcliffe.
