We take a look at Friday nights (8/2/2019) A-League 2019 match which is between Brisbane Roar and Sydney FC. Sydney FC are the short priced favourites heading into the match and punters have been happy to take the short odds bet for them.

Where: Suncorp Stadium
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
Brisbane went from one of the biggest highs to the biggest lows in the space of a week.
After pulling off a miracle comeback against Western Sydney, the Roar blew a three goal lead in Adelaide and had two players sent off in the process.
The bigger loss of the two will be star goalkeeper Jamie Young who is going to be replaced by either Brendan White or Y-League keeper Macklin Freke, either way they will be starting their first A-League match.
Sydney has only lost one of its last six at Suncorp Stadium and shouldn’t lose this here.
