At some point Brisbane will be able to get that elusive second win, for a while it looked like it would come last week before a second half collapse.
The Roar did beat Melbourne City in Round 5 at Suncorp Stadium but when they head to the Victorian capital it’s a different story.
A 2-0 loss in last season’s semi final was the latest in a line of disappointing results, in fact the Roar have only beaten City at AAMI Park once in their history.
The market is starting to catch up with the Roar’s recent run of results and has them at their longest price of the season.
With the gap in class between the two sides you can still back City to win with confidence, but to add in extra value, back both teams to score as well, the Roar have only been held scoreless twice this season.
Tip: Melbourne City at $1.57
Correct Score: Melbourne City 2-0 at $8.00
