  • Brisbane Roar FC vs Melbourne City FC Prediction

Brisbane Roar had defeated WS Wanderers on the road in their previous league encounter with a 2-1 scoreline. Meanwhile, Melbourne City will be visiting after a 3-2 win at home against Western United in their prior match.

Moreover, Brisbane Roar will be playing their fifth home match this season in the A-league. As such, it is too soon to comment on their form at home in the campaign.

However, the Roar has won two of the four home matches so far. Significantly, the Roar has defeated Melbourne City in one of their home matches earlier this season. So, the host will be confident to face them once more at home.

On the other hand, Melbourne City has lost two of their six away games in the league so far. Also, they lost their previous away match in their league schedule.

Even though the City is the second best away team in the league currently, their earlier loss to the Roar at the same conditions makes them weaker in the match.

As such, with their home ground advantage, Brisbane Roar has more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes. However, Melbourne City cannot be written off since they have a good overall form in the league.

Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance in the clash with both teams likely to score goals in the match.
