Draw

Melbourne City are aiming for a sixth consecutive home win over Brisbane, but there is a strong likelihood of this run coming to an end. Patrick Kisnorbo’s team are formidable at home and they have lost just one match in eight games. Brisbane’s away record has improved a lot with three successive wins – including the 4-0 success over Central Coast Mariners. Rather than pick a home win, a draw offers better rewards for the risk.

Total goals over 3.5

Brisbane and Melbourne City are two teams in a good scoring form over the last few weeks. Melbourne City are the top scorers in the division with 45 goals, while Brisbane’s return of 11 goals in the last six matches is certainly impressive. Surprisingly, Brisbane have had a flurry of away goals, which are undoubtedly helped by the 4-0 win over Central Coast Mariners.

Jamie McLaren to score anytime

Melbourne City’s top scorer Jamie McLaren has three goals in eight matches against Brisbane Roar. Crucially, all of these three goals came in a single match, as his record against Brisbane has not been particularly great. Still, the 27-year-old is in excellent form with a failure to score in just two of his last 10 appearances. He has even been able to score 5 goals in the recent Melbourne derby.

Melbourne City vs Brisbane Roar: Predictions, Match Preview, and Team News

Melbourne City

Melbourne City are on course to extending the lead over Central Coast Mariners. There has been no stopping Kisnorbo’s team over the last few weeks, as a couple of points dropped against the likes of Sydney and Macarthur have been convincingly forgotten with the wins over Melbourne Victory and Perth Glory. The team might face tougher challenges in the forthcoming weeks, as they would take on the likes of Adelaide United and Central Coast Mariners.

Brisbane Roar

Warren Moon has seen his Brisbane team put up a good show in recent away matches to give themselves a lot of confidence ahead of the difficult trip to face Melbourne City. The team’s comeback win over Western United has taken their unbeaten sequence to 7 matches. If Brisbane persist with this run, they could end up in the second place within a few games.
