Last 2 Meetings:

Victory won by 1 goal – Round 13, 2017. Victory 2 – Jets 1
Jets won by 3 goals – Round 8, 2017. Jets 4 – Victory 1

Prediction:

Central Coast lost 2-1 against the Roar at home last round and now haven’t tasted victory in 9 straight matches. They also haven’t beaten the Wanderers in the last 4 meetings at home. The Mariners are 3 points behind the pack for 6th and need to win this one.

Wanderers won by 2 goals – Round 11, 2017. Wanderers 2 – Mariners 0
Draw – Round 2, 2017. 2 – 2

Prediction:

Brisbane Roar FC vs Melbourne City FC

Sunday, February 4, 2018 @ Suncorp Stadium
Odds: Roar $2.80, City $2.25

Roar Form:

Brisbane earned 3 crucial points last round and now sit in equal 6th position on the ladder. But they did lose in the ACL during the week and City will be a tough challenge. However, they have a decent home record against City as they’ve not lost in the last 4 meetings at Suncorp.
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 1 goal – Roar 2, Mariners 1 – Round 18, 2018
WON by 1 goal – Roar 3, Glory 2 – Round 17, 2018
LOST by 1 goal – Roar 0, Jets 1 – Round 16, 2018
LOST by 3 goals – Roar 0, Sydney FC 3 – Round 15, 2018
LOST by 2 goals – Roar 0, Wanderers 2 – Round 14, 2018

City Form:

Melbourne City is coming off a 2-2 draw against the Jets and haven’t lost in their last 5 matches. They have the second best defence in the A-League and will look to keep the Roar quiet in front of goals.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – City 2, Jets 2 – Round 18, 2018
WON by 5 goals – City 5, United 0 – Round 17, 2018
DREW – City 2, Mariners 2 – Round 16, 2018

In the two meetings between the sides this season, the home team is 2-0. The Roar won 3-1 at home and City won 2-0 at home.

Last 2 Meetings:

Roar won by 2 goals – Round 7, 2017. Roar 3 – City 1
City won by 2 goals – Round 1, 2017. City 2 – Roar 0

Prediction:

City are 8-3-3 as the favourite this season and should be able to win this one. Brisbane had a mid-week fixture and that could hurt them in the latter stages.
City WIN ($2.25)
