Australia A-League – Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 22nd October 2017
Kick-off at 7:00 UK/ 8:00 CET
Venue: Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane).
Brisbane Roar will be desperate to get back to winning ways when they host an inform Newcastle Jets for Sunday’s A-League fixture.
Roar started the season on back-to-back defeats, the first 2-0 away at Melbourne City and the latest 2-1 narrow loss at their own turf against Adelaide United.
John Aloisi’s men looked to have all three points in their bag at the Suncorp Stadium last weekend, but conceded twice in the last two minutes of the game. In all honesty, it was an excellent performance by the Roar and could have killed off the game earlier if were able to take the chances properly.
Newcastle Jets finished last in the A-League last season, but they have brilliant start to the new campaign. The season opener saw them thrash the Central Coast Mariners by a 5-1 margin. And on matchday 2, it was a priceless draw at home versus Perth Glory.
The Jets conceded early goals in both but were quick to mount the comeback. The Irish forward Roy O’Donovan scored in both outings, score the first three at Central Coast and again his team’s first against Perth.

Brisbane Roar produced a much improved performance in their opening home game of the season. They will be confident of a positive result if they can carry on the momentum.
Newcastle Jets are also coming in good spirits. Especially, with their ability to tear apart defenses on the break. Therefore, I consider both sides to have equal chance to grab a win here.
But, my picks for the match will be from the goal markets as the meetings between these two sides were never short of drama.
