The Roar will host Melbourne City in round 5 of the A-league on Saturday. The hosts are without a win in their recent home matches and will be looking to come back to winning ways soon.
The hosts are without a win in their last 6 competitive matches of which half were defeats. Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of those 6 games across all venues. In front of their own home crowd, they are winless in the last 3 games.

Of the 4 games in the league, 3 were draws and 1 was lost. Their last game saw a 2-2 draw against Western Sydney Wanderers. They conceded 2 in the first half and then came back to level the game, credit to a penalty goal by Taggart.
“City Blues” are 3rd in the league after a win in the last match. They have scored and conceded 5 goals each. From their 4 games they won twice and lost once as well.
In their previous 6 matches, they have won 3 matches and lost twice too. Three matches in those 5 saw over 2.5 goals in total. But they are unbeaten on the road this season which is just the opposite of the last season.
So both the teams have drawn their last home and away matches respectively. Thus we may see points shared her on Saturday.
