Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne Victory
Date: Tuesday, 15th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 08:50 UK/ 09:50 CET
Venue: Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane).
“Roarcelona” will meet the current A-league champs on a Round-15 fixture on Tuesday. The Roar is in a bad shape as they look for their first win in over 5 league games.
The hosts are at the bottom of the table losing 7 of their 12 matches so far. A whopping 25 goals have been conceded by the team from Brisbane and only Mariners have given away more this season.
At present they are on a 7 game winless run losing 6 in that run. In 6 of those 7 matches, the full-time score had more than 2.5 goals in total. After a win over Melbourne City in Round-5, they have never got 3 points in a game and conceded at least 2 or more goals in all following matches as well.
In front of their home fans, they are on a 2 game losing streak and has only a win in the last 5 home fixtures. One of those defeats was against the Victory itself with the game ending with a final score 2-4.
The current champs are right behind the toppers Perth Glory, with a 6 points gap between them. A win will reduce that distance considerably and will lift the team’s morale after the recent loss against Adelaide United. This was their only defeat in the last 5 matches, of which they won 2 as well.
In all their previous 5 matches they conceded goals, but with a total of 14 goals given away, they are one of the better defensive sides in the competition. The Victory has won 5 of their last 6 matches on the road while losing only once. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their last 5 matches away from home.
With the Roar not looking good to win even at home, we may be in for a largely one-sided affair on Tuesday.
