Brisbane Roar FC vs Newcastle Jets
Date: Friday, 20 March 2020
Kick-off at 08:30 UK/ 09:30 CET
Venue: Cbus Super Stadium (Gold Coast).
Carl Robinson’s men may be placed in the bottom tier of the table, but they have a rare distinction of being the only team at present to stay unbeaten in the past five league games. Coupled with their desperation to qualify for the playoffs, and with Robbie Fowler’s men hell-bent on making it to the podium, a goal-fest seems very likely this Friday.

Brisbane Roar FC vs Newcastle Jets Prediction
Fowler’s men recorded a 1-0 win at home the last match-day, against the Mariners. It was their second win in a row, and the team stood true to their objective of going after a podium spot.
Meanwhile, Robinson’s men won 0-3 on the road the prior game week, against Adelaide United. It was their sixth unbeaten league match-up on the trot. This newfound form will definitely help the squad to go after a playoff spot. However, they will have to keep performing at a high level, considering the season is about to enter its home stretch.
In terms of result, Fowler’s men hold the upper hand. They are already placed in the top tier, and excluding a handful of games against some of the very best in the country, they have performed phenomenally well this season (especially so at this venue). On the other hand, Robinson’s men have not fared well on the road this campaign.
In fact, before their victory over Adelaide, they were on a six-game winless run (which included a five-match losing run), and they were winless in 11 of their 12 away fixtures as well. Considering these circumstances, it’s expected that Brisbane Roar will deliver the three points this match-day.
However, understand that Robinson’s men have the longest active unbeaten run in the league right now, and that they are desperate to get into the playoffs. On top of that, they have a majestic h2h record against this opponent as well. As such, these two in-form and determined squads should clash and put forth a fierce goal-fest for the fans.
