Brisbane Roar vs Sydney FC
Australia – A-League
Date: Friday, 29th March 2019
Kick-off at 08.50 UK/ 09.50 CET
Venue: Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane).
Despite the huge gap in quality, Brisbane pulled off a great upset last month against Sydney. At home, the team defeated the latter by a 2-1 scoreline. It was a substantial beat-down on pride for the potential runners up of the A-League.
This game is nothing but a chance to settle scores for the visitors. While Sydney comes from the top-most of the league table, Brisbane represents the other end. With the semifinals of the playoffs in sight, Sydney can’t have this defeat hanging around in their minds, and aptly needs to be dealt with.
Brisbane would have been the worst team in the competition if only the Mariners were not a part of the tournament. The former has put just 15 points from their 22 games so far and has won just three ties.

Brisbane Roar FC vs Sydney FC Prediction
This time around, Sydney will not be wasting time. They will get into serious business right away. The loss against Brisbane, at this venue, last month, was a huge setback as far as their aspirations for the season is concerned. Sydney needs this win desperately to satisfy their pride as well as the doubts of critics. Going into the playoffs, no talks of bottling against minnows can be entertained by the team.
The setting is in place for a Sydney win. They are the potential runner-up of the league, while their counterparts are easily the second worst team in the competition. Sydney was unbeaten in 28 of their last 36 matches, and in 19 of their last 25 on the road. On the other hand, Brisbane has just three wins to their name this whole season in the A-League. They were winless in 21 of their last 24 fixtures, and in 19 of their last 22 at home.
Moreover, Sydney has registered four of the last six h2h wins and is on a scoring streak against Brisbane in the last five ties. They have also managed two or more goals in three of the last five h2h encounters.
Expect Sydney to get on top of things right away. They will not leave things to chance this time. The team just cannot risk another upset and will want to calm things by an early goal. Expect them to win both halves of the tie.
