Market: Adelaide United win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
With their spot in the playoffs already confirmed, Adelaide will travel to the Suncorp Stadium on Thursday morning.
Starting with the hosts, suffering a humiliating 6-1 defeat at home to Newcastle last weekend, Brisbane have endured another horrific campaign in Australia’s top-tier. Picking up just four victories this season and now losing five of their last six outings, it will unsurprisingly be the Roar’s continued defensive issues giving Darren Davies the biggest headache. The Oranges have not recorded a single clean sheet since the end of November and they have now conceded 20 goals in just their last six appearances. More worrying for fans around the Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane have lost three of their last four on home soil and have conceded two or more goals in seven of their last nine in front of their own supporters.
As for the visitors, putting in another impressive display in their 1-0 win over Melbourne Victory last weekend, Marco Kurz’s side are enjoying a quite the purple patch at the end of the year. Already securing their spot in the playoffs, Adelaide are enjoying a four-match unbeaten run and appear to have saved their best performances for the end of the season. Winning three of those matches on their unbeaten, fans around Coopers Stadium will be most impressed by their newfound defensive stability. Kurz’s men have conceded just one goal in nearly 400 minutes of action. It is also worth noting that Adelaide have won both encounters against Brisbane this season, scoring six goals.
Bet: Adelaide United 4/6 to beat Brisbane Roar and over 1.5 goals in Thursday’s A-League contest @ Bet 365
