Perth Glory vs Brisbane Roar
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK
Venue: nib Stadium (Perth).
A real buzz is expected in and around nib Stadium on Saturday when Perth Glory play Brisbane Roar in the direct clash for the playoffs. Teams are level on 32 points ahead of the match, being a single short of Western Sydney Wanderers in sixth. A win here thus won’t guarantee the playoffs since the Wanderers must not beat Adelaide on Sunday to allow one of these two sides break into the playoffs spot.
In any case, we can expect a huge battle when these two sides meet in the last round’s berth at nib Stadium. The Glory will come into the game in a much better mood after beating the second-placed Newcastle Jets 0-2 on the road last timer out. Diego Castro and Adam Taggart confirmed amazing spells of form by netting a goal each in the mentioned victory. This duo inspired Perth’s run of three wins in last four league matches and they should be the main threat to Brisbane’s goal on Saturday.
The Roar, on the other side, dropped the ball seven days ago when they suffered a tough 3-0 loss to direct rivals in the battle for the playoffs, Western Sydney Wanderers. John Aloisi’s men thus ruined the good job they’ve done previously being on a run of three wins and a draw in four league ties.
