Western Sydney Wanderers vs Brisbane Roar FC
Australia – A-League
Date: Wednesday, 1 January 2019
Kick-off at 08:30 UK/ 09:30 CET
Venue: Bankwest Stadium (Sydney).
Brisbane are one of the worst teams in the competition, and on top of that, they are on the road as well. Into this equation, also consider the fact that the Wanderers have been the dominant side in h2h clashes in recent years – and we get a favorite to post the three points this Wednesday at the Bankwest Stadium, Western Sydney Wanderers.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Brisbane Roar Head-to-head (h2h)

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Brisbane Roar Match Preview
Western Sydney are currently placed just outside the playoff zone, but recently have tried to turn around their season with two unbeaten matches in a row against teams from top tier.
They will definitely aim to extend it to three on the trot, considering the current position of Brisbane on the table and their completely shambolic run on the road this season.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Brisbane Roar Prediction
The Wanderers were on the road the last match-day, and had taken on Adelaide United from the top tier. Still, they managed to record a 2-3 victory to post three valuable points on the board.
Meanwhile, Brisbane had to work hard even for a 1-1 draw the prior game week, against the dead-last placed Newcastle Jets.
The performances of both teams in their most recent league fixtures alone would be enough to determine to whom goes the upper hand. On top of that, consider the away handicap of Brsibane.
They are the worst team on the road in the competition, and in fact have not recorded a single win away from home this whole campaign. In the process, they have also scored the least number of away goals as well.
On the other hand, the Wanderers have lost just once this whole season at home, and it had come against the second-placed Melbourne City. Also note that, in front of the home crowd, they had even defeated the reigning champions, Sydney.
Moreover, the Wanderers have the home advantage, and they have also been the better team in h2h clashes in the past years. They are on a run of six unbeaten h2h meetings, and scored twice or more in five of the last six clashes.
On the contrary, Brisbane had failed to score at all in two of their prior three visits to this stadium.
Considering these observations, it’s adjudged that backing Western Sydney Wanderers for the win seems to be the optimal choice this Wednesday.
