Competition: A-League

Market: Melbourne city win and over 2.5 goals

Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365

A battle of two sides enduring very different starts to the new season, a resurgent Melbourne City side will welcome Brisbane Roar to AAMI Park on Friday.

Starting with Warren Joyce’s Melbourne City side, coming off the back of yet another impressive showing in their 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets last week, the former Manchester United reserve boss has seen his Blues enjoy an impressive resurge. Now unbeaten in their last four outings and with the opportunity to jump as high as second in the A-League table, the hosts should also be boosted by their recent record at AAMI Park. Losing just one home league match since the start of March 2018, it is also worth noting that Brisbane have won three of the last four meetings between the two sides, scoring two or more goals in each of those victories.

As for the visitors, while Melbourne might be enjoying an impressive run of form in Australia’s top-tier, the same can not be said for Brisbane. Coming off the back of yet another lackluster showing in their 4-2 hammering at home to Perth last week, the Roar have managed to pick up just one A-League win this season and their defensive issues will be a huge concern for John Aloisi. The Oranges have conceded two or more goals in each of their last seven outings, a run that stems back to the 24th of November. More worrying for Brisbane, they have now managed to pick up just two points out of a possible 21 on the road this season.
