Western United vs Brisbane Roar: Head-to-head
Western United have joined the professional scene last year, so only one head to head clash in history against Brisbane Roar is not surprising.
That initial clash was won by Brisbane in mid-December 2019. The score was 2-0 with Pain and Berisha clinching goals.
Western United vs Brisbane Roar: Prediction
The experience is heavily favouring the visitors. Western United have been very inconsistent when it comes to home performances in the debut season, so we see good value in backing Brisbane at 2.80.
Two or three goals in the match seems like the best option for goals market. 7 out of 16 games for both sides ended like that so far.
