The City Blues are made into the knockouts for the fourth consecutive season, but they are yet to reach to the finals. They were eliminated at the same stage last year after back-to-back semifinal appearances.

Brisbane Roar are one of the most consistent side in the league in recent years, having won the title three times between 2011 and 2014. Besides, Friday’s clash mark their 8th consecutive appearance at the first knockout stage.

Despite the different history, it was the City Blues who enjoyed a better run in the regular season this term. Yet, they haven’t been that consistent. The team managed by Warren Joyce finished third in the table, 11 points behind the leaders Sydney FC.

On the other hand, Roar only achieved a 6th placed finish with a strong run at the end of the campaign. They managed 13 points from a possible 18 to push behind Western Sydney and Perth Glory in the three horse race.

Melbourne City vs Brisbane Roar: Head-to-head

  • This will be the first meeting between Melbourne City and Brisbane Road in the knockout stage.
  • City won 2 and lost one from their three h2h meetings in the regular season this term.
  • Seven of their last 7 meetings saw both teams scoring at least once.
  • City are more successful having won 6 of their last 12 head-to-head clashes, along with 3 draws and 3 losses.
  • Brisbane Roar have not won a match at the AAMI Park since 2010. They lost 7 and drawn 3 of the last 10 visits here.

Melbourne City vs Brisbane Roar: Predictions

Both teams gained momentum at the closing stages of the regular season, but Melbourne remains strong favorites with their immaculate h2h record over the visitors.

Considering how Brisbane Roar did their business in away games lately, this won’t be a cake walk for the team in Blue.

Therefore, one of the bet to bank on is the both teams to score, considering the Road have scored at least twice in 7 of their last 9 away games. But they kept only 1 clean sheet in the process. Meantime, the City scored in 9 of their last 12 home games, while conceding in 8.
