Perth Glory vs Brisbane Roar FC Prediction
Tony Popovic’s men had been the best in business in the country the last season. They had raced to the top of the table, en route to their maiden Premiers title, and registered an eight-point lead over the second-placed Sydney.
In the subsequent Finals series, Perth was unlucky to have missed out on the championship after the penalty shootout. They will be determined to not let that happen this time around and will be eager to prove their hunger on the pitch.
On the other hand, Robbie Fowler’s men finished just above the Mariners, who had been the absolute worst of the lot. Moreover, the team had conceded the most goals in the competition, whereas their counterparts, Glory, let in the least. Popovic’s men had also scored the most number of goals during the campaign.
Finally, h2h clashes too tip the scales in the direction of the Premiers. They have won the previous three straight such battles, and have scored twice or more in eight of the prior nine clashes. At this venue, the team scored a total of 24 goals from the prior eight meetings as well.
Taking into account these observations, count on the hosts to start their campaign with an emphatic win.
