Game Previews

Brisbane Roar vs Wanderers


The Wanderers have won only 3 of the last 12 meetings with the Roar (3-2-7)

In 5 of the last 6 meetings the total match goals have finished Overs

Only once in the last 12 matchups have the Wanderers gone to half time with a lead

Brisbane have opened the scoring in 9 of the previous 12 clashes with Western Sydney

The Roar have been beaten at Suncorp Stadium in only 1 of their last 20 matches (15-4-1)

Brisbane have scored the opening goal in 8 of their last 9 matches

Maclaren has been Brisbane’s 1st goal scorer in 4 of the last 5 meetings with the Wanderers and he has scored a total of 9 goals from the previous 6 meetings with Western Sydney

Preview: Tough game this one for the Visitors having won just 3 of their last 12 meetings against the Roar (3-2-7). Brisbane back at home with the best record in the league losing just once in their last 20 matchups (15-4-1). All the stats here are with the Roar. The Roar in fact, have not been beaten since Round 2 (5-4-0) is an ominous sign for the boys from Western Sydney. Squandered a great opportunity last week in Hamilton, leading 2-0 and missing a penalty, they could only walk away from NZ with a solitary point. Coach Popovic will tell anyone that listens that they are playing well, but it’s really been a scratchy season thus far for the Wanderers. Inability to score goals at times and defensive inefficiencies at times see’s them on the fringe of the 6 in 7th spot. Another dangerous sign looming for Western Sydney is the Roar’s maestro Thomas Kristensen. He has been Brisbane’s best over the course of the last month and he didn’t play in their previous encounter. All in all, how can you go past a Brisbane victory. Keen on the home side in this one.
